A number of you will crap on this perhaps due to being external optimist in the face of reality slapping you in the face. Disagree all you want but since the day he was announced CNM has done absolutely not one thing to disavow me of my concerns. In fact, he’s validating them. This was simply a bad hire. He is in over his head at this level and it’s not just this tournament that shows it. You only need to look at the one game with Ohio. So here’s a team that hasn’t had a winning season in three years, they are picked last in the MAC East, and has a first year head coach that absolutely dominated McDevitt's team in every facet of the game. So, all these BS excuses I keep hearing/reading about giving time, be patient, he will turn it around, blah, blah blah can be swept away after what happened last night. At MT that’s the culture most everyone has been forced to chew and swallow. It’s why it takes so long for many to see the decline in football. In other words, at Ohio they hire a new coach and start flipping the script. At MT we just have to give it time. From my vantage point, the dichotomy between these two teams is indicative of why I have been concerned about what I see. Year 1, the Ohio program coming off consecutive losing seasons is already well, well ahead of MT in year one than MT is in year two. That should be a major red flag. MT wasn't a losing program. It was coming off a dominant and epic run and while I know that Kermit left with a bare cupboard after the signees were granted releases (which was a mistake), it's no longer someone else's fault. This is McDevitt's team and he makes $750,000 per year not to put the garbage product out that is currently MT basketball. The Ohio head coach makes $580K. Maybe McPhee and Massaro should have hired that guy instead? If I saw us moving in the right direction, I would say so or at least I wouldn't say what I am here today, but it's not. There is absolutely no improvement in year two and - as I said - the primary concerns that were pretty obvious from the day he was hired are being validated night after night when his team steps on the floor.
