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.
I think you're overselling him based on one really good season, he's still a bit of an unknown quantity in "how good is he" and like you guys frequently keep mentioning he's got a fanbase that actually has expectations. Was it a truly great coaching job or did he just pull a Bruce Weber-lite and ride the wave? It'll be interesting to see what he does.
