What's happened since December? Why did those teams improve over the past 2-3 months and UC has digressed? I think those are questions to ask if we are to pin point where UC's problems lie. It seems to me the answer has to come back to Mick. It's something he's not doing right. Is it something he can correct or is it a weakness in him that's innate?
If UC is going to insist on keeping him around it would behoove them to answer this issue and ask for Mick to change what he's doing.
This is from Lance's blog. UC's record down the stretch under Cronin has been horrid. He hasn't won a single game in March his entire time at UC, not one.
UC down the stretch under Mick
'06-07: 1-11 in last 12
'07-08: 0-7 in last 7...including CBI loss
'08-09: 1-6 in last 7...including losing final four games
'09-10: have lost 6 of last 7 and 7 of the last 9
Mick is 0-12 in March at UC
