BIG BILL FAN Posted March 15 Share Posted March 15 1 hour ago, billiken_roy said: Dennis i understand you want to paint a literal picture of success. 21 win seasons are normally considered a success. but unfortunately the expectations of the fan base was for a lot more wins than that and to still be playing rather than the season being over. expectations endorsed and fed by the powers to be at Saint Louis University fired up the fan base to a level not seen before for the Billikens. and now the defenders of the powers to be want to tell us, "pay no attention to what we told the world last fall, that obviously wasnt the case and we really meant a successful season was 20 wins. since the Billikens actually exceeded that with 21 wins it was very successful." well i personally dont like being patronized and gaslighted as such. i would think you as one of us members of the Billikens Fandom would also be at minimum wanting some serious answers and action. Notice i am not advocating in writing here fire the coach and/or athletic director, but just wanting some answers and a plan going forward. just hoping and praying it will get better shouldnt fly. we have been letting the powers to be get by with that for decades. maybe it is time to be honest and even more so time to take some real action. It isnt our place to tell the powers to be what that action or even that honesty would consist of. These people get a lot of money to run this program and we only supply a lot of the enthusiasm, passion and funds to make it work. but i sure would appreciate the powers to be telling us why we should continue to be a part of the this what now seems to be more than ever an "Effort in Futility". what you are missing Roy, is the expectations of the fan were unwarranted based on the actual facts.... Perkins a shell of himself, Pickett injured much of the season Thatch, our best defender misses the last half of the season The biggest mystery was the offense of Okoro, Ford and coaches can definitely take some of the blame for that... Most of these facts aren't because of coaching they are because of life and circumstances. The life of a mid major is always going to hang on the edge, not sure why this is hard to understand as frustrating as it is... slufanskip likes this Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
