Ok i understand. As a coach there is a lot of pressure. But at his tenure here at UOFL i believe this is the most pressure he has been under since becoming the head coach here. No we are not UK. No where near close to that. But first off we got the Yum Center. Which i hear is great. (Been awhile since i've been home) But we all know that fans wont watch crap. Remember that era of football with the coach who is not to be named. It ws so bad that even now Charlie is still tryna get the fans to buy all the way in again. Get people to be on time to the game. So a disappointing year follwed by another dip in recruiting and this could get ugly for us. And when the money stops rolling in. Tommy Boy steps in to fix it. Like Denny Crum, Like HWINTBN (he who is not to be named) So i do believe that coach is going to do everything he can do.
But he has been a bit defensive. The article written in the courier journal. Which most of the article is pure fact that anyone could see. I beleive that he is upset because the nation is seeing his failure. Last year was supposed to be the bridge year nobody expected us to do well. We did alright anyway. Now we got the class he said would change things. And Certain things haven't quiete gone our way. Really just injuries. But i think that the fans have seen how CRP arrogants effects his coaching. To be honest in my opinion if the fans hadnt seen and liked Russ as much as they did he probably wouldnt be playing. (again personel opinion) In that same thought i believe thats the reason Nunez doesnt play. I think he beleives that people will fall in love with his offensive ability,and won't see his defencies on defense. But i also think that it could be used for motivation for him. If your a true baller you want to be on the court. And a taste of success and the potential to be a fan favorite might motivate him to learn or try harder on the defensive end. Just saying it works sometimes.
But Rick is seeming to become more and more defensive as the season goes on. As the fans become more frustrated, and the team piles up the loses. Rick spoke about Procrastination in his tv show this morning about seeing something wrong and going to work on it immediately not waiting. So i do beleive that CrP has done that but i dont think he has built a reciepe for success. With the style of ball we play, we cant have a "system" that is simply reliant on two people who are going to pick up fouls. Siva is going to pick fouls and so is Gorgi. And without either one of those players the offense will look even worse than it has. So i would urge rick to find another way to get some offense going. I way that doesnt require us giving up size and toughness inside (like moving kyle tot he 4).
How is everyone watching the game cause i'm in conneticut and there not telvising the game up here. I cant get espn 3 because i have sprint internet
