He would have won simply because he would have never let them drop 94 points on us.
No,I do not know. He lost to East Carolina last year with Jarron Keith and Tevon

Our offense is better than 4 teams in the league.

Ecu, Tulsa, temple & south Florida

Our defense is also 8th in the league.

In micks last 4 seasons combined at UC.... we lost 1 game to a team ranked 100 or worse. Which was a road game at ecu, where Shawn Williams shot best game ever.

Mick won 3 out 4 of his early season tourney. The only loss coming to Rhode Island who was a top 35 team.

Mick lost to ECU... in what was supposed to be a complete rebuilding year. And yet took us back to the tourney.

Add in that Brannen inherited an entirely different situation then Cronin. Cronin inherited a bunch of losing players who lost their top 3 scorers. Brannen inherited a team who returned its top 3 scorers and was picked 3rd in his league, UCLA was picked 9th or something.

I just have a feeling that in 3 years time, we will all be wishing for mediocre Mick back because we’ve missed the tourney 3 straight years and will be spending all of our televised games on ESPN+

I hope to god that isn’t the case.

Cronin lost to East Carolina last year with the best player in the AAC on his roster, stop making excuses for him

Ok... He lost to one sub top 100 team in a 4 year span.

Like Jarron Cumberland has been apart of 2 Sub 100 losses in his career, One is from Brannen and one is from Cronin.. thing is Cronin was his coach for 3 years, Brannen has been his coach for 5 games.


In the last 4 years Mick was: 67-1 Vs Teams ranked top 100 or worse


Thats good for 99% in his last 4 years.


Do you think after what we just saw in the illinois state game, where Jarron had to save his ass and the Bowling Green game, that Brannen is going to go with a 99% winning percentage against teams in the top 100 and worse?


For example: UCLA last season ranked literally almost identical to bowling green, and we kicked their ass. NKU was ranked 96, which is better than bowling green, and we kicked their ass. We beat UCONN 2x and they ranked identical to BGU.


just last season alone Mick had 14 top 100 wins. Brannen has 2 in his 5 year career.


Yes, the 99% winning percentage says Mick wins this game if he is coaching.



I mean seriously though.. Did UC really just hire a coach with 2 top 100 wins in his career? And we wonder why we look like we have no idea what were doing.. Its because we don't..

His 2 top 100 wins are against Oakland and ETSU.

I think we lose the fight with Xavier this time though LOL

Outside of Jarron, Im not sure who we have in a cage fight to match up against Tyrique jones, Paul Scruggs & Naji Marshall.

I still think Brannen was the best hire, but I have to agree he's not looking good at this point. Even in our wins we haven't played well. And the coaching debacle at the end of the game last night did not win him any fans.

I do wonder how long Brannen will get if we don't make the NCAA tournament this year. I think he should get 3 years, but with a miss of the NCAA tournament this year and next, that might be enough to get him fired in two.
