This is a bit cynical and apologetic but...

If you don’t like Bennett style of basketball, beat him.
If you can’t beat him, STHU!

I’m not going to try to list the coaches who have been released/left from their ACC coaching positions during Bennett’s tenure. Most of them probably had a more “fan-friendly” pace of play. Their style of play wasn’t enough to retain their position. Wins and losses (the lack of the former) is what got them fired. Roy Williams retired from UNC. He did so on his own accord and in no small part due age and desire to continue. But his departure was hastened by a marked decrease in wins. He continued to play the up-tempo that fans enjoy. But the fan base enjoy winning games more that scoring 80/90 points a game.

I know I am stating the obvious, but no one really cares if you are winning games. That why I am always bemused by folks that say Bennett style is unwatchable. My response is, “yeah, maybe but it wins!”

  I don't think the defense is their issue. It's the offense -- AmericanHero247 11/24/2021 09:20AM
