    SIAP, but I didn't see these articles mentioned, and they weren't on the newsfeed. One is a Howell article giving out awards, and grading the various aspects of the team. The other is a Ringo article about raising CU men's basketball expectations.

    It's interesting that the only A grade was given by Howell was to the coaching staff (I have trouble giving an A, when that's the highest grade, and I know they could've shown up for another couple of games that they didn't). Interestingly, this was the subject of some criticism in the Ringo article.

    I love having Coach Boyle and I love our MBB team. It's so much fun to be able to nitpick and have raised expectations, rather than hoping for a nice win at some point during the season.

    Howell is a nice guy, but I haven't gained any morsels of wisdom from him in terms of basketball analysis. Seems like a lot of people are stuck between being gracious for what we have and not trying to appear greedy in demanding more. Ringo's article is a bit more spot on. Thing is, I'm sure Tad is demanding more from himself and the entire program. He and the coaching staff have to improve, especially in-game adjustments, along with the players. There's legitimate reasons for why the team hasn't made a tourney run in the last two years and some of them were within Tad's control. It is possible to critique w/o coming off as a d**k (not saying anyone has) and I can't wait to be past the collective "oh i'm just happy we're not a laughing stock" phase.

    Would've rather they kept Thorburn and NOT him. I agree with you he seems like a nice guy, but I don't think he's that great. Also, I think you are right with Tad not being satisfied. In terms of your last point, I think you can realize how far this program has come, be happy about it, but also have higher expectations as a result of what we've accomplished.
