But, you don't get deep in March by just waiting around for a huge matchup. If they don't make a huge bang in the SEC tourney they'll be on the bubble. An NIT visit this year and goodbye Cal.
I think he's lost his mind a bit this year though. Not the tangent about overrating UK losses. But how far he's going to protect his guys. Something about it just rubs me the wrong way, probably because as Forde pointed out...they aren't really doing that well and he's still rewarding them.
I know he needs attention and to be loved by the fans, but if he can't get his team together soon the fans are gonna turn on him. I think he can fail this year with just an NIT appearance, but the seat is gonna be pretty warm for next year.
