Wish coach would tone it down a little or at least incorporate a little more positivity when things are going well. How often does he clap or pat guys on back when they play well. Not enough.

Last year when Coach yelled at TJ, TJ would walk to his seat smiling (more like smirking). Knew he was gone once he started laughing. Josh, Matt, and Keon and most of the new guys knew what Frank was like when they signed on. I am just hoping we can keep the core players and build with them.

That's what you got out of my Bobby Knight mention when strictly talking about demeanor and how it relates to the players? Strange.

Not strange at all. It's a tired argument people have made for years about Bobby Knight. He yells. Boo hoo. I'd happily taking his yelling and some fans being mad about it for the NCs.

I hope they buried him upside down so his critics can kiss his ass.
It will get better.

IV - He wasn't referring to the yelling... it was the physical stuff.

I guess we're just going to ignore the physical violence?

This gets lumped in, yes, and I assumed that was part of it (it always is), but the post was pretty clear it was referring to the yelling part and that's what I focused on.

Cross, Thompson and Diggins have experienced it. If they didn't like it, they would have left like the other (mostly) bums did. They accept it. All the new guys shouldn't be blind to the fact that this is his coaching style (Davis even came out and defended him and said this is what he wanted) since they are all his recruits. As long as he doesn't become Mike Rice or Bob Knight, I think we should be OK.

The last I'll say on this since this is a Josh Cohen thread: FM screaming and yelling is not a big deal. And if he somehow wins NCs here, 99% of the people here will love him regardless of his "demeanor" during that time. You're lying to yourself if you think otherwise.

Yep don’t love it but just decided to laugh at it and if he wins I’ll be happy

After playing what, five games in a UMass jersey, I'm not sure how anyone can make any comparison between Cohen and Mr. Julius. It's not like he did this work during his time here.
I'm joking around. Can't believe you think I'm comparing the two at any level. It's an anomaly of irrelevant statistics.

'Zona, I like that phrase, "anomaly of irrelevant statistics".
Good one!
