As this basketball season has spiraled down the drain. I have noticed that the local media has ignored the Panthers for the most part. I'll catch a score every now and then, but I rarely hear any serious discussion. About a week ago I happened to catch the Sports Showdown (fast forward to 28:53) where two of the three panelist felt Dixon had no hand in the failures that took place this season. My jaw just about hit the floor when I heard the blind defense of Dixon. Sadly basketball is a serious blind spot for 99% of Pittsburgh journalists.

When did coaches lose responsibility for the recruits that they bring in? If talent is being misjudged who's responsible for that if not the coach?

When did coaches stop having any responsibility for the development of the players that they recruit? The player has to be motivated to improve, but if the player had all the answers as to how to improve coaches wouldn't be necessary.

I understand that he has been an incredibly successful regular season coach, but maybe he's just coasting on the system that Ben Howland put in place.
