And, most importantly, he was a name that the 14 year old I hired with a wifi connection and a free saturday came up with. So I have to get behind.
From a Tech fan:
Of the guys not named Howland, Marshall, etc. he has grown on me
If they're going to dip into the up and comers, then go get him.
I'm at the point where I really don't care anymore.
This guy has at least consistently won. Nothing, but positives written about him. The issue with these up and comers is can they recruit well? If not, it is going to potentially take awhile to get relevant.
The fans will like him once he talks a bit, but this isn't a splash hire. Now, we have to go through the crap of who the REAL fans are and giving him a chance. Just do a little research and you will see that he is a solid coach and maybe the best coach out there that no one heard of until the last week.
I do not believe that none of the bigger names were interested, unless it was "Hey Ben, you wouldn't want to come for 1.5 and we pick your assistants would you?"
I want a good coach who can win. I believe he is both. Therefore i have no issues at all with this.
Offer your proof.
Winning percentage of 80% over the last two years and a winning percentage over 70% overall. Not bad for a guy taking over a program that had a losing record before he arrived.
After seeing the Teddy Valentine confrontation, I was sold on Cronin.
Pretty much all our AD knows how to do.
Still, that being said....it's not a bad name. He apparently knows how to win at Tech. The main concern is that he's only been there 3 seasons and it's a relatively small sample size to go off of.
White may be good and do a great job....BUT....I still take great offense that what should be a Bergdorf-Goodman University shopping the K-Mart Blue Light Specials.
That's our reality under DiPietro, Cheek & Hart not to mention our governmental "leadership". That's what pisses me off to no end.
Refer to KidB's posts.
Howland is terrible.
In the dictionary, under the entry redundant it says see redundant
That's cute. But, seriously, see my posts.
But will he come and make the lunkheads feel at home by being a shameless 24/7 self-promoter?
