His teams are consistently inconsistent. Add a little more consistency (ie, not losing games to lesser opponents) and he would be great.
Seth operates just below the NCAA tourney line. We anxiously await an invite, and get snubbed. He's done very good things, but I'd like to see us do more.
Drink better than eat.....eat better than no drink.
Half the fanbase? You're delusional. Not even close.
If you are happy with 15-20 win seasons and NIT's he is your guy.......Cupcakes will always get Seth about 9 wins, and he has shown that with talent, he can capture anywhere between 7-9 ACC wins. He has not proven he can get teams beyond the NIT, and he has not proven he can even perform well in the postseason. We know his limitations as a coach. There is not much about CSG that comes as a surprise to anyone anymore. If you think he is a good coach and want him to stay, great. If you are like me, and think we will require someone else to take us to the next level, you are expecting a change in the coming years. It is what it is; however, if CSG could not take that 2008 recruiting class to one NCAA tourney, I just don't see his taking this class to one........
While I take issue with the instant gratification tone of judging Seth and the entire program on the heels of a losing streak, I am receptive to those noting that Seth is flawed and his ceiling isn't as high as Huggins, Krzyzewski, Calipari, Roy Williams...but the fact of the matter is those guys aren't coming here.
I guess the tangible question is...What would you do if you're Weaver? Fire the winningest head coach in VT bball history? And replace him with who?
And why weren't we having this discussion a month ago?
I talk to a wide variety of Hokie fans all the time............The truth is, most have no clue how Seth is doing with the basketball team and don't seem to really care. That to me is a sign that a coach is not really capturing a fan base. The fans that do care about basketball are split, AT BEST, over Seth. Most agree that he is not a great in-game coach, but they are split on whether or not we should get rid of him.......To say the critics of Seth are a fickle minority is so beyond wrong it is crazy. You sound like you are living on a fantasy island somewhere when you say that.........
I think people are over the "VT has always sucked" argument..........it was cute at first, but people are trying to move beyond that because we sound like a cat with its tail between its legs when we keep preaching this........HISTORICALLY, we have NEVER been in the ACC. You can bring up all you want about the past, but it is not the past, it is not the same conference, resources are completey different, etc. I will never understand why we would accept medocrity because we have been historically mediocre, under vastly different circumstances.
There are valid arguments to be made on both sides of the discussion. The overall level of discourse could be greatly elevated if we actually discussed things like adults and stopped huring insults at people who disagree with us. I have plently of knowledge of historical knowledge of this school's basketball program and completely disagree with you.
I find it ironic that you used Bob Huggins as a counter example of the type of coach "who would never come here." I mean, could you just imagine a coach like Huggins slumming at an isolated college town in the middle of the mountains and actually being successful there? Truly such a scenario is impossible...
