I Don't Know Mike Vadala, But I Don't Agree With Him

It's now Tuesday and the coaching carousel is in full swing, right now, at least 12 teams will have new head coaches next year, and some schools, like Texas Tech and maybe Mississippi have already filled their openings.

Yet Syracuse fans eagerly sit and wait - watching for the plume of smoke to come from administration officials, signaling whether they've made a decision on Greg Robinson's future. Today Donnie Webb runs a list of pro's and cons from reader Mike Vadala, who concludes that Robinson should be kept one more year. If you've read this blog more than once, you know T3I disagree with Mr. Vadala, there's no real sense in going over this list point by point, he's certainly entitled to his opinion. I actually credit Donnie for finding someone who supports the coach, that couldn't have been easy.

The real issue, as I wrote yesterday, is timing. While the general sentiment is that since there's been no announcement to date, Robinson gets another year, I can't help but feel like we are in a weird game of Jeopardy - where the fans are Alex Trebek, asking the question and eagerly awaiting an answer, and the Good Doctor is......oh, I don't know, maybe Sean Connery.......

I'm okay with it until he says you can't turn around a program in three years. Don't tell him about Illinois...

As a fellow Mike Vadala, I would like to support Mike Vadala in his sentiment even though I have no connection to Mike Vadala or Syracuse.
