Lots of things make us look stupid.  This is just another on a long list.

Makes me look stupid. I thought he didn't seem like a good game coach. Coming into year 1 and doing that at UMBC, you have to be a good game coach. I don't see them bringing in high level recruits.

Congratulations coach Odom.

Hard to judge his time here.  He was placed on the staff by the AD not hired by the head coach, elevated to HC when Major stepped away from the bench but was still around the team, forced to coach a team while his boss was still around and who could be returning the following season.  Just not a recipe to see what he could do with his own team. 

Imagine being given your bosses job, but your boss is still sitting in the room and they might be your boss again.  Not exactly empowering to make the changes needed or command respect from the people on the team.

Major was sitting in on team meetings while he was out for medical leave?

For a time he was still around the team, just not coaching on gameday.  I don't know if he was physically in the meetings - I was speaking more metaphorically.

He didn't get a fair shot here, would have been nice if we could have kept him and some of those recruits/players in place.
