Roster turnover, schedule cupcakes early , have a couple of tough OOC games that we will lose and blame the roster turnover, horrible start to the Big East season, come together late , rip off some good wins in conference, fall just short of the tournament, rinse and repeat. This will be life under CMA. 

I’m not sure this team will even fall just short of the tournament.  Hope I’m wrong

No. I am Canes fan and it looks like they are finally committing to spending money. SJU has been to dormant.  If Mike is answer then he better start delivering. If not then go find next Lincoln Riley who does not want to compete with SEC or Big 10

But if you’re willing to get into the muck, Slick Rick could do it (and he’d jump at the chance).

I didn't want to do that a few years ago, but I'm warming up to the possibility with every passing game.

As for Anderson, I had concerns going in, and I've seen nothing in two-plus years that has quelled those concerns.  Specifically, I feel he is too much of a one-trick pony, who only knows how to play one way.  I don't think you can do that anymore, and win consistently.  They just have too much video on you these days, and our opponents will likely adjust accordingly.

Yes, there are certain things you would want to do, and certain ways you would want to play, but I still which he would look primarily at matchups for each individual game.  See which ones you can exploit, which ones you want to try and avoid, and go from there.   Anderson seems to be a "forget everything you've done in the past, you're playing my way now" kind of coach, and the days of a coach like that having big time success are probably over.  I also wish he had brought in an assistant who helped with halfcourt offense, but Lavin's the only coach we had who brought in assistants that covered his weaknesses (Dunlap, then Whitesell, even though he didn't work out - it was with the right intent).

It also looks like he attended the "Jarvis school of subbing" (take out a hot player before he gets cold, but leave struggling guys in to get tougher, and work things out).

Honestly, if someone like this had come along when we hired Norm or even Lavin (just to give you a timeframe), I would probably be a lot more tolerant of these shortcomings.  My patience however, has worn thin.  To quote a former NYC-area NFL owner, "I want to win now.  I'm feel like I'm entitled to some enjoyment with this team."  Of course, I won't mention this owner by name, nor the coach he was hiring at the time.  Look it up.

I'm about ready to jump off the CMA bandwagon. Watching this team live now a number of times, I just don't see his Coaching style working. Defensively, the switching defense that results in one opponent after another getting open shots is getting old. And lack of movement on our offensive side leaves too many rushed and poor shots. Just watch Kansas this evening making the extra pass for easy buckets. His substitution patterns are mind boggling and in at least 3 or 4 games already this season, I'm scratching my head.  Wait until we get into the BE regular season. This could turn ugly. For a supposed defensive coach, this team plays horrific defense. And why does it take so long for this team to get going out of he gate? Boy, are all these transfers disappointing or what?

At least he mentioned offense.  I was starting to wonder if he realized that there were two sides of the ball that needed to be played.
