What other stats should I use? My position is that if we are not consistently in the top three in the conference, that is totally unacceptable. Any stats comparing Marlin to the top 3 in the conference are valid precisely because I expect more from our program than we have been getting. If I were happy with 2 top 3 finishes in 7 years, then the comparison would not be valid.
I have made my point. I will give it a rest until the offseason.
I am not happy we have not been in top three more consistently as well. However this was not the season we should have expected that to occur when we were playing so many new guys. That is why over 85 percent of respondents voted to retain and i am confident the overall support is over 90. In answer to Just 1 More's ? As to why i put out the poll is simply i was curious as to what the response would be. I should have waited till all games have been played as I suspect we will be in a minor tournament. The poll results do support the view a change is not even a consideration in the mind of anyone that counts at this stage.
Mike this poll only confirmed my view that MBB is now considered a minor sport at UL. A coach just has to be mediocre, and have nice, polite young men who go to classes.
As VO pointed out the lowest money generating sport among sports that are supposed to generate money. In most universities baseball, and softball should not be in the top three, here we are.
Keep in mind the cost of scholarships hits each sport. That is a big part of football cost. Baseball has less scholarships than basketball which helps that sport. I think that is funny money to some extent which is why athletics is not as much of a financial drain as some propose
