Frank won with intimidation plain and simple. True basketball fans cringed when the Wildcats played offense as it looked like a bad high school women’s team. The aftermath of that coaching style is still being felt with today’s team. Rebound well, defend fairly well, but still a very poor offensive team. Coaches that win CHAMPIONSHIPS are regarded as Gods Larry, not coaches that just win which is what Frank did. He would have never brought us a Big 12 or National championship. He might have gotten us close, but that is more a tribute to the players than to his coaching style.
Most people disagreed with the hiring of Weber as it was so quick and people did not think he was truly the best candidate. He never won with his own recruits as his record steadily declined every year after Self’s recruits graduated, it was also a slap in the face that he told Jacob Pullon that he could never play for him at Illinois. If he couldn’t recruit at Illinois what makes us believe he can do so in Manhattan.
It will be an interesting year and I hope Weber is able to be successful as I agree with Larry if he is not it could be a short trip!
