I don't think it makes sense to say Mike's coaching style or tactics caused us to miss the tournament last year. Or his first year, for that matter - those both seem much more Jimmies and Joes than X's and O's.Speaking of cherry picking, you isolated Evans injury in our sole NCAAT appearance to absolve Mike's coaching style and tactics causing us to miss 3 other tournaments.
How does that make any sense?
I guess it's a matter of perspective. I'm always disappointed to not make it to the NCAAs, but I wasn't surprised not to make it given what we knew going into his first year or last year. Honestly last year was surprising because Ace came back so quickly and at such a high level, and we got so close to making it even with no margin for error after how the season started. 19-20 was a failure regardless of the tournament being cancelled, and I think not making it this year would be as well. We're a long way off from that right now though.
