Not sure what the future with Haith will bring, but the signs are pointing up, and he has won some cred with me with the team's performance last year.
Agree - Haith never had a "lull" at Miami. He just never got over the hump.
He didn't have to build the Mizzou program from scratch, he just had to keep the ship going and not f#ck up. He obviously did much better than that, and now he has tons of recruiting momentum and can sell a winning program, passionate fanbase, great facilities, new conference, etc. He never had much to sell at Miami.
It sure seems like other fanbases are a lot more concerned about Haith going forward than Mizzou fans are. Personally, from the improvement I saw in our players, the intelligent set plays, the calculated substitutions and timeouts, and the recruiting momentum we have now, I have very little doubt about Haith's ability at this point.
