I believe in Mick Cronin. if UC has another long season this season, my stance will not change.
If in 2 or 3 more years, it's no better...then I will begin to question Mick...
Completely agree. The basketball program was pretty much completely dismantled under Nancy. Why she felt the need to do that is beyond me. Basketball was the money maker. Luckily for her, football has picked up a lot of the slack, otherwise I think there would still be a large crowd calling for her head. How do you take down a program that brings so much attention and excitement to your college? Yeah, there were problems, but Huggins put that school at the level it was. The whole situation has to go down as one of the worst moves in college history. If the football program hadn't taken off like it did this year, where would UC be right now? Acedemics alone would never carry a school like UC. Especially when considering location. Yeah, they have good programs, but not good enough to live or die by.
