now to the Big East days. Talk about an apples and oranges comparison.
We Now Have:
Better fan support
Better overall talent
I give SG credit for a lot of that, but he has shown he is incapabale of taking this program to the NCAA Tournament on ANY sort of consistent basis. One time in eight years is absolutely horrible. Meanwhile, Clemson and FSU went to the tournament multiple times in that same time period. I don't recall them having much basketball history either.
So, if you're ok with the NIT being the ceiling for this program, you're entitled to that opinion. I'd like to think we do better than 1 NCAA Tournament appearance in eight years.
Having said that, he won't be canned after this year. He'll be out if we don't make the NCAA Tournament next year.
