Yeah, there is no question that Rhoades is taking an active approach to coaching, despite numerous comments to the contrary. I actually like it, though the execution is not always there (which is why I don’t entirely chalk the Mason loss up to coaching).Actually, one positive out of this crazy season has been being able to hear the coaches on the sidelines due to limited attendance. You can hear Coach Rhoades in the background coaching his butt off on every offensive/defensive possession. I can't tell you how many times this season I have heard him yell at his D1 players to not foul. It may be me, but the two A-10 coaches I have heard the most in the background this season have been Mike Rhoades and Anthony Grant.
On the flip side, there also have been way more coaches getting T'd up this year because the crowd noise is not there to hide their comments to the refs. The refs are hearing everything this year that the coaches say to them.
