All "Gripes" with Greg McDermott
I was very excited when Coach Mac was hired because I felt like he was a coach who would mold our guys into a team with exceptional chemistry. I wasn't sure that he'd be able to bring in the most talented players, but I was sure that his strength was molding a team that is greater than the sum of its parts. In other words, I knew that chemistry would be the LAST thing we'd have to worry about.
As I read this Paul Rhoads interview, it reminded me of exactly the kind of coach that I thought Mac would be, and exactly the kind of basketball team I thought we'd have. Now I have to admit that I'm completely stumped as to why it hasn't worked out like I thought it would.
I haven't given up hope on Mac, but I have to admit, it's getting really hard.
