Sunday Shortcomings

hi-res-157149705_crop_exact

I guess I should start off this week by just mentioning that the NHL is still in a lockout!  How is this happening.  The amount of money that these players and owners and the league are losing out on has to be approaching the amount that they are losing out on by not having a season.  No hockey until at least mid-January and even that seems highly unlikely.  I am not the biggest hockey fan, but I can enjoy a game every now and then and this is just plain ridiculous.  Come on people.  Figure this stuff out and get back on the ice.  It should not be this difficult.

I am sick and tired of coaches not being able to finish out a season. Don’t fire a coach mid-season unless it is an absolute necessity.  The rumors surrounding the UCLA Bruins head coach Ben Howland are either a little late or a little early.  If you wanted to get rid of him you should have done it before the season or after this season is over.  Don’t fire the guy mid-season.  Especially since his team is finally starting to win games.  I know that the mass transfers of the last couple of years is a major red flag, but this team still has the talent to make a deep run in the NCAA tournament.  Howland has been on the hot seat for almost a year now and though that hot seat isn’t any cooler following the start of this season there is still a chance to salvage this season.  Ride out the season and then assess where you are as a nationally prominent program and then make your decision.

    They need to get their shit together.

    I hate the speculation. Decisions like this are between the organization and the employee. Do I know everything that Howland does, but he has had a track record of giving players what they need to succeed. I believe that his coaching has not declined, the maturity level of his recruits have.
