Any person in charge that could not take from that proof over years of games that a change needs to be made to protect the LV legacy of great basketball needs to fired unless that is their plan - to deemphasize the program. It's UT and the LV's legacy - not Pat's legacy. She left with a great legacy, but she is no longer with us. The LV's are. Same in the football program. It took embarrassing disasters for over a decade and backing into asking a loyal Fulmer to take over to hopefully fix football. It should not have come to that, but it does because of the complete failures of leaders that have the authority there.

Boom.

We've got way too many people over there interested in maximizing profit, building buildings and self preservation. We should be focused on winning championships.

And that's an even bigger problem.
A. Fixing turnovers requires a cultural change, and it MUST come from the top. You have to be tough on players that don't value the basketball. I don't think Holly can fix this becuase I don't think that sort of tough love is part of her personality. Maybe I'm wrong here, but I don't believe that I am.

B. Not being able to attack zones is inexcusable, though. You can hire assistants that will help in this regard. Also, there's a myriad of info out there to help you develop effective zone-busting strategies. She may know all of this, but it's not translating to the court, and that's just as big a problem as not knowing.

Not many people in the tower focused on winning championships. That's only trotted out on media days to keep the natives from getting too restless.
