Let's slow the roll

Love The Tool Man and if he were to roam the sidelines of JPJ I will be front row game one cheering my backside off.

But take the politics out of it and look at reality

1. He is taking over a team that went 7-23 last year.

2. There are no quick fixes at Navy. No JUCO, no transferring in. You develop talent around a much bigger mission that the young men and women there have chosen for their lives.

3. It's the Patriot League. All coaches who leave the Patriot League do so to a mid major first.

4.You have to find players to fit your style who are ready to make a much bigger commitment. Even once you find players who fit and want to come, admittance policies are even harder.

To pretend the deck is stacked against Coach Taylor to be here in two years is an understatement. Frankly, for those in the camp of wanting him here, they should be rooting even harder for Coach Thompson to stabilize the situation as the job in Annapolis is probably a 3 to 4 year job.

Will be rooting to eat my own words and truly believe that he is type of person who can make an academy successful. Hope Virginia does reach out to bring him back for a game.
