Herbs the best coach we’ve had since V. All the criticisms of Herb are valid. Both statements are true.

I wouldn't say all the criticisms were valid. Some were, but some were incredibly dumb and had no bearing on his ability to coach or recruit.

his timing was off

the memories of the Valvano era were still relatively fresh and that was the biggest thing going against him

Herb in 2022 would be a much better fit than Herb in 1996

Even his successes were clouded by the first 5 years (plus the Les years) of his tenure. He had lost enough fans by then that unless he won a conference title (which he nearly did) or something major, he wasn’t winning a large portion of the fans back. Herb was a fine coach. He also should have been irreplaceable. But we’ve yet to make a good hire since….

The biggest fuck up was the fans (myself included, probably) not wanting John Beilein after Herb. He would’ve come. And likely would’ve been pretty successful

Yeah my bad. Should not have been irreplaceable.
