I don't understand why more people don't recognize this.
What I don't get is how anyone can actually come away from this thinking that AV is blameless or should shoulder less blame than the players. Either the players are making this **** up, in which case it's a negative because it means they tuned the coaches out. Or this is the strategy given to them by the coaches in which case it looks bad on the coaches because it hasn't worked in over a year now.
There's honestly no angle to the team's current play that makes the coaches look good.
