don't know about you, relly. but this "same old, same old" is just EXHAUSTING!
at least with football, we realized the same sh*t wasn't working, and we needed transformational changes. we have a ways to go, but no one can say we aren't scratching, spitting, and crawling to give ourselves a fighting chance to get there.
with hoops? Coach L has a system, a philosophy driven by his own experience. he knows it inside and out, and he has everyone on the same page understanding how to best make it work for Miami. he sticks to a good plan, tweaks it where and when he needs to, and we actually have a real program worth talking about.
we've been mostly a disaster since Morris retired (without officially telling anyone), 3 years before he actually left the program.
with the exception of some "boom amidst the bust", have we really been anything but chaotic and consistently underwhelming? We haven't sniffed the CWS or a Super Regional, or even a conference championship since 2016. there's nothing about this team that leads anyone to believe we will ever be other than a "middle of the pack" player, and no one in the AD's office seems to care that Gino can't coach his way out of a one car driveway. He's in year 5, and .... exactly where is he heading?
i have zero faith in Gino or this program, and where football's long reign of mediocrity made me angry, this just makes me sad.
Amen & this is y I was disappointed in Rad for extending Gino like he did. That was, imo, a str8 nepotism/cronyism play. U can’t see what this program has been for the past 6 yrs, including that absolute flame out to end the season & say, “we’re in good hands.” Sure we’re known for FB, but Miami is also known as a powerhouse baseball program & this is sad to see. Gino angers me so much as a bench coach. We’re seeing the same chit EVERY season, so why would I expect it to change this yr?
