How is it that different? Because you get to say you made it? You think South Carolina would trade their final four for getting bounced in the first weekend 8 out of 9 years? I don't. Or Wichita? It is getting embarrassing and probably hurting our recruiting.

The Cincinnati Enquirer is reporting that Cronin could be a candidate to replace Virginia Techís Buzz Williams should Williams leave for Texas A&M.

You think having 2 NCAA tournament births in 2 decades, with one of those being a final 4 is a better recruiting pitch than going every year? That sure is an interesting take, but to each their own.

I donít offer an opinion on the coaching of Cronin. Iím simply writing the Enquirer reports this. Make of it what you will.

I agree it doesn't hurt our recruiting to make it each year. That said, I bet if you asked Troy, Evans, Clark, Jennifer, or anyone would they rather have had a final 4 run in one of their years and not made it the others they would all take that over not making it past the 1st weekend 4 years in a row.

While I do believe Mick has some adjustments he can make I do remember this year thinking we had no chance to come back and win several games. I was about a minute from tuning out only to watch us come back and win the games.

So I think he makes some decent adjustments at times. I would like to see him make a couple of adjustments in his overall approach though. Perhaps use the grad transfer and not worry so much about players getting feelings hurt. Recruit more basketball players vs athletes etc. We all know he can coach D so we could use more scoring minded players. Maybe get the younger more talented players more time vs seniority earning the minutes by default.

We know how things will end if he doesn't make adjustments. For some that will be good enough and for others it won't.

The comment you made was players don't care about making the tournament if they get bounced the first weekend. You don't think it means anything to them to watch selection Sunday and be in the tournament? If that's how you think I don't know what else to say.

Well of course. What player wouldn't want a final 4 in their 1-4 years of playing? Bottom line is that doesn't happen for the vast majority of players and/or programs.
