Mid-season firings. Coaches are decidely against it.
But the personnel decisions and the timing thereof are just a symptom. The real issue is the "professionalization" (my word) of the game. More money at stake. More pressure for athletic directors. You have to win. As a coach, your job is riding on it.
Less concern for the health and well-being of the student-athletes... Taking more chances on players with suspect backgrounds, but beautiful jump-shots. Merry-go-round rosters.
We are losing something beautiful about college basketball.
Are we really saying that the end justifies the means?
