Minnyme has been on that for longer than I have and yes it is so obvious that even Ruesse has picked up on it. It's clear that Borton does not understand X's and O's. Her offensive schemes have left her teams looking confused and disorganized for years. Rachel Bahnam college career is just being wasted. She could have been the corner stone of something big for this program. Instead she is sitting next to Borton at a press conference looking dejected. Borton says her team needs a sense of urgency. I think it urgently needs a new coach.
Thanks TJS and you nailed some of my thoughts. I’ve thought she should have got the boot after the 2006 season. It was after that season the mass exodus took place. That season she graduated 6 seniors and had 5 players (3 or 4 would have been starters) walk away from her program. So she has now had 8 season, 8 YEARS really , to recover, to try to fix what she screwed up.
Every year she starts the season by throwing the previous year’s senior class under the bus and speaks so highly of the promise of the current squad. After a rather soft pre-conference schedule, she’s been throwing the post players under the bus. One a senior M. Riche who has regressed as most seniors do and the other the frosh AZB who is now getting banged around in Big10 competition after putting up big numbers against the little sisters of the poor.
Now, next year the Big10 adds Maryland and Rutgers, 2 big time Women’s programs; a Borton coached team is just going to sink lower in the conference. Norwood can't be this blind going into his 2nd yr can he?
But hey you got another chance to watch the train wreck, the Women are on BTN tomorrow (Sat 2/1) for an 11 am road game at Michigan. Who knows which team will so up.
