No, it was. Kicker was speaking as a coach and it was an explanation at least from my perspective.I assume you accidently quoted me since your post has nothing to do with mine?
"If someone can't find enjoyment in watching sports because they can only remember the bad things then that sucks bad for them."
I really enjoy watching the Hawks as a fan. I also like watching about any game including Iowa and look at it from a coaching perspective.
From a coaching perspective, Fran drives me nuts. I do know a former player of his and had a discussion with him about Fran. This player really liked Fran as a person. He really seems to be a "players" coach, though it seems something has been wrong and my suspicion is the rub comes from some players thinking the sons get some preference. I also suspect there are some issues stemming from the Barnstormers, but that is an entirely different subject.
I think Fran gets as much mileage as he does because most of the players really do like him. He gets a lot out of players like JBo, Uthoff, White, Garza. Others like Woodbury, Perkins, Marble, Cook, Murray 2... seem to not get all they need fundamentally.
Few leave early and mad. A few left with unfinished business.
I also think Iowa is a good destination and has been a plus to Fran. He hasn't really helped build that, but hasn't hurt that either.
So, I can watch as a fan and enjoy and yet be driven crazy by the not so few and easily fixable team flaws.
Thought you were a bit hard on kicker, but discussions lead to...discussions and Fran could care less about what we think...
