    In response to Old Bear

I love the staff's demeanor and professionalism and presence. I like that the staff has engaged me more than ever before. (Low bar, but still.) I like that we've played a faster paced, more entertaining brand of basketball this season.

But I'd trade it all for some of the sustained success jst talked about. And I don't see where it's going to come from if not from better talent or a system that our existing talent can execute more consistently. Why can this team not defend anybody? It's not just the pace they play at - the defense has been bad. There's no answer for that. That's either selection or execution.

The institutional barriers are not going away. Between brand and facilities and fan support - you have to be really really good - or lucky - to be successful. So something still has to change - and if Mike's the guy, then Brown needs to find a way to support the program better than this.
LET'S go BRU-no (duh. nuh. nuh-nuh-nuh)
