The puzzling thing about Cuonzo was just how erratic his team's effort was. When motivated, they could look fabulous. They defeated UK by 30 a year ago, UVA by 35 last December and then played the best basketball of his time at UT over the last month of this season. However, they also just went through the motions against teams like Vandy, Texas A&M, UTEP, etc. The fans often had reason to be frustrated, but the Pearl petition was a bad idea from the start. I won't be surprised if Howland gets the job.
