    I do believe Coach Steele deserves at least three years, but easily, the biggest disappointment this year has been the defense.

    To be one of the worst defensive teams of any power conference team in the nation is unacceptable, first year or not.

    I personally think you just throw this season out the window. I think we all have been too spoiled and a little humility is good for all of us. Next year your criticism will be warranted.

    It's hard to grade his coaching when he has such terrible shooters. Maybe a C? IDK.

    Spoiled is an enormous understatement. How many times can people possibly write, "I know it's early..." "I know it's a small sample size...", "BUT". No, you either know it's early in his career or you don't.

    There's a thread doubting Steele's outlook based on Christopher's hiring history at BOWLING GREEN! Get real people. A down year in the Big East is not the same as a down year in the A10. I'm sure Steele would love a game against Fordham right about now. A coach's record in the Mid-American has no bearing on the outlook for Steele.

    The only thing I'm grading Steele on is recruiting. We have a strong group coming in. You're not going to be able to extrapolate anything deeper than that.

    do we, though? I know the overall class ranking is good because of the amount of players, but only two seem to be highly ranked and likely to contribute next year. I think he's a good recruiter, but we've had stronger groups come through recently (although in retrospect, the Scruggs/Marshal class is likely to end up being only those two).

    No, there is a thread wondering aloud if Greg Christopher knows what he is doing when hiring basketball coaches; no more, no less. If you don't find that to be a worthwhile topic, all good. He has NEVER hired a basketball coach who was able to have a .500 record, including in the MAC (caps for your benefit), so if that doesn't trouble you, no problem. Maybe the 4th times a charm....
