I had no where else to vent my frustration, so I'll vent here.
Two Weeks ago: UC interim coach Andy Kennedy's job was put at risk for not making the NCAA Tournament.
Tuesday: UCrnnarrowly defeats Minnesota, and an outpouring of support for coachrnKennedy comes from the crowd, including chants of "Hi-re An-dy" andrnsigns like "If Andy leaves, this seat is empty."
This morning: former UC coach Bob Huggins, who was fired by President Nazi, oops i mean Nancy Zimpherrnfor being arrested for DUI before the season started, signed a fivernyear contract with Kansas State, likely luring in two of the biggestrnhigh school basketball players in the country.
6:00 PM: UC plays against South Carolina in the third round of the NIT, otherwise known as the Not Invited Tournament.
8:00 PM: UC loses 65-63.
9:02 PM WKRC reports that UC hires former Bearcat assistant coach and current Murray State coach Mick Cronin.
9:03 PM WKRC reports that Andy Kennedy has accepted the vacant spot at Ole Miss.
I don't understand the university's handling of this whole situation. If someone could explain it to me, I'd appreciate it.

Trying to understand big time college sports is impossible. First of all, you must admit that Mr. Kennedy must have been working on a deal with Ole Miss (a very poor place for basketball) for at least a week and ditto for Mr. Cronin. Only the public was left in the dark. The other thing is that interim coaches are very rarely hired for the position. Very AD wants his own person.
