Play Richie Springs

I don’t think it's hate, just pointing out he probably wasn't qualified to be a head coach at this level yet. The results are proving it so far.Why do people here hate them tho? Because of precious? Our histories barely intertwine, I don’t like or dislike them at this point.
I hear you but man that team last year was just so sloppy and undisciplined that it’s hard not to reflect that on the coach. He’s going for a recruiting style that can either bring you lightning in a bottle or completely blow up in your face and so far the results have not been great. He may very well turn it around, but as great of a recruiter as Penny is, there’s only so far it will go if he can’t put a better coached team on the floor.I honestly like Penny. Seems like a down to earth guy for such a big star. He runs a fun to watch play style and was probably the best part of our schedule last year. Also didn’t take parting shots at UConn like some others in the AAC (actually even seemed like he had lots of respect for us).
Think it’s still too early to fully judge him as a coach. His team is super young and think they just need to buy into Penny’s program more, just like our team with Hurley last couple years. Guy can obviously recruit though, and I’m rooting for him everytime in those recruiting battles versus Duke/Kentucky.
He didn't have Wiseman due to his own actions. He recruited him knowing he was ineligible. In essence, be knowingly cheated. I'm not going to give him credit for that. In fact, the opposite.Penny has been bit unlucky. If he had Wiseman last year we would look at him differently.
But you can do that in football and they don't say anything until the kid is the pros.He didn't have Wiseman due to his own actions. He recruited him knowing he was ineligible. In essence, be knowingly cheated. I'm not going to give him credit for that. In fact, the opposite.
