Lovie should have been canned after this year... Archived Message

At least he didn't get an extension. This class is a good sign that Lovie still hasn't figured out a) recruiting and b) roster management. No power 5 school should ever have 13 recruits in one class. |
Given how much of this year's success was due to turnovers, and given how teams that profit from turnover success one year tend to regress to the mean the following year, I think 4-8 is more likely than 7-5 next year, especially with this class coming in. What's worse is that the next coach will have to deal with this class when he takes over. The one upside of the small class is that there won't be as many of them to process out of the program to bring in guys who can play. But seriously, this class has 2-10 seasons written all over it.
What is the point of all that Big Ten money if you can't spend it on a decent coach and staff?
Woof. Lovie probably gets an extension after 7-5 next year.... then what?
