probably right. it's just sad (albeit, water under the bridge) that the coach they have to stick with may very well be the weakest of the bunch.

Brian Sutherland made a good point. paraphasing: young players can be indifferent or flippant to a coach when they see that the coach is always fired. It may be that Eakins is a victim of being the 3rd guy in 3 years. the kids just don't take the coach seriously, because they know they are the ones in charge.

Once, again, an ugly environment created by inept management. over and over again.
