Quick Thoughts on Bill Carmody’s Return

Frustrating as Bill Carmody’s team are to watch at times I have no problem with him coming back to coach Northwestern next year. The odds are that NU wasn’t going to hire a game changing type of coach, especially if the University of Illinois couldn’t land one. Therefore, it’s better off with Carmody who knows the massive restrictions which NU has and is willing to work under them and make NU competitive. The key now is if Carmody can find a way to improve his own weaknesses.

You will never know unless you try. I guess I will try to support this decision, but ...

I graduated in '73. I only saw teams that could not get the ball over half court if pressed and who were often out of the game by halftime until Coach Carmody arrived. He is great at finding true talent that have not been widely recruited. At first he recruited in the Adriatic. He had to. Now 3 starters were from DuPage County in 2011/12. He has done a great job and it is important to keep him and to transition to Coach Travaris Hardy in the future.

Shurna for President!

You made some good points there about ExamSheets. I did a search on the topic and found most people will agree with your blog.
