Listen: John Brennan, Mick Cronin And Basketball discussed on Lance McAlister
"Turned into John Brennan and the UC Bearcats hiring today. I said earlier I'm not used to dealing with such a level of happiness and excitement for things happening sports. Wiser more often than audits. It's frustrating and people ranting and raving and screaming and yet in my very scientific poll on Twitter, Atlanta's McAllister Eighty-three percent said they liked the hiring of John Brennan. And I said earlier, I think it I look at it from two different saying. Points the critics like it because for whatever reason they didn't like Mick. So it somebody different but the critics of mic that criticism included in in quarters the style of play or the the heavy emphasis of defense not enough offense. I think this change even the supporters of UC basketball, the supporters of mic, I think were at least asking for a bit of a tweak to UCLA basketball tweak. It'll make it more aesthetically pleasing to watch UC basketball, tossing a few more shooters pick up the pace a little bit. I think this hiring has done just that. Changes is is good. And it doesn't mean I said this before no say again, I was you'd by many as Mick Cronin apologist. If that's the way you want to look at it. I'm not going to change your mind. I was a big fan of what Mick Cronin. Did. I believe he was still under appreciated for what he did in thirteen years here. I don't think people fully understand appreciate the obstacles. He faces in the conference. He's in in a conference that is not power five or the big east. There's a long list of reasons I can give you none of a matter now because he's not here. But I just get the sense. This hiring covers a lot of of people from the critics who just wanted. Anybody different tweet the supporters of the program who wanted a different look and way of presenting UCLA basketball, John Brennan's going to do that. And I said this on Friday night. Sometimes the answer is right in front of you in terms of surp- sometime. The most logical answer is in fact, the. Hist answer. John. Mike bone said earlier today, the director of athletics that they scrub the nation for this search, and it became a matter of John Brennan versus this resume John wins. John Brennan versus this resume John wins. John Brennan won all of those comparisons. And John Brennan's the next coach of the U C bear cats."
