It's always important for the coaching staff to be on the same page so they're giving a consistent message and that becomes harder when there is a lot of turnover with assistants. It probably helps some that most of the staff played for Senderoff at some point.

Excellent point. Keeping good assistants, relaxed transfer rules, the transfer portal, lack of adequate funding....lots of things that make it difficult for a mid-major coach to keep the program from going below water. Even with some abysmal MAC outings, the fact remains it is almost February and only two of the other eleven teams have more MAC wins so far.

The Akron and EMU games stand out as prime examples. Sendy just out coached Groce and Heath in both those games which you can tell by how confused and defeated those teams were. To some extent, this was true in the Toledo game and today as well when we put the clamps on the guys who were hurting us. Some games, it’s just about which players on which team get hot at the right time and coaching strategy doesn’t have a lot to do with it. Carry just took over today and that’s not coaching, that’s just talent. The Akron game was similar but they had no defensive answers and didn’t know what to do.

I know people like to jump on Sendy when we lose, but I’d argue our losses haven’t really been coaching issues as much as personnel problems. As this team gets healthy and the main rotation gets settled, I appreciate the great job Sendy does, and I don’t think there’s a better coach in the conference. (In fairness, I think the jury is still out on Boals. He’s done very well so far.) I sure wouldn’t trade Sendy, though. I think he’s outstanding.

I like this team’s chances in February and March. We’re sitting in 4th place and are 2-1 vs. the three teams ahead of us.
Excellent evaluation, Agree on all.
