Hopefully, the tide will shortly shift. The fact that our former coach is an alum and we have missed out on all their guards speaks volumes. Whatever it is we were selling PGs, they clearly were not buying it.
So we are screwed either way? I am for taking a leap of faith on a new coach. It worked out well for us with Pops. My fear is that we are so afraid to let go of our past that we will screw up our future. Admin needs to think big and take bold measures. I'd rather fail trying than just muddle along.
We don't need Pat to excel at Xs & Os, but to recruit the hell out of the DMV. He won in college, and more importantly, he was an NBA All-Star with a retired jersey at MSG. He is a compelling presence.
All things being equal, we are a fantastic destination for a coach, but who wants to come if they are going to be on JT2's leash? May make the job unbearable for a true outsider. Keeping JT3 seems like the safest course, so I expect that's what the university will do.
