As for doing some research...here's some research for you. Not looking to far out but looking at other CAA affiliate members and peer institutions in the AE. Maine and UNH joined the CAA in 2007. Throwing away each teams inaugural season (Fords first year)...year 2-5 records.
4 year in conference winning %
By contrast, a coach that has 4 full years under his belt has a winning % of 34% and a record of 11-21 and we are being told but it's so hard...other programs struggle making this move. <- this isn't even true...
Again, I'm not asking for him to be fired, I just don't understand why there was a rush to extend a coach and commit another 900k or more to him when he had multiple years left on his contract.
Not comparable. Maine and UNH had been in the A-10, the same league, the CAA just took over management. Stony Brook had a head start by going to the. Big South a full scholarship league before moving to the CAA. But some startups like Kennesaw seem to have moved right past us
They also play a bit rough inside with that Irish kid and Attia. Clearing out with elbows, etc. That's what had me incensed when Stire was called for 3 fouls on basically one trip down the floor. On the third one he took a charge to make a point and was called for the block instead. People were LIVID at that call.
Yeah, I was amazed that Carroll could play like he does for 37 minutes and not get whistled for a single foul.
