I've been giving Dixon the benefit of the doubt, but it's at the point where you have to take a hard look at him. The players have changed, but the results largely have not.
in that same vein, these past 3 or so years have pretty much changed the way that kenny the kangaroo has viewed dixon. his results, for better or worse, speak for themself. you cant deny that pitt has done good things in the regular season, and having the best record in the big east and whatnot does count for something. hes put guys in the nba and hes improved the recruiting.
but at the end of the day, the post season is what counts and pitt has failed miserably. again, his results speak for themself. kenny the kangaroo is done defending the pitt hoops failures. thats not to say that we all should try to run dixon out of town, but at this point, the notion that pitt needs to do whatever it takes to keep him at pitt is out the window.
