TSM Coaching Approval Meter (Post-Pitt 2010)

It's been four games since the Approval Meter broke 15%, but that certainly looks to be a streak that ends today.

It will be extremely interesting to see the progression of thoughts from the depths of Syracuse and UConn, to general indifference of Cincinnati and Louisville, to now a win over our most hated rival.  Sure, Pitt was never to be confused with a world-beater, but even an ugly win over a very bad Panthers squad is probably worth 10%.  What will a 25 point win over the conference leader do?

Over the past few weeks, the record has certainly spoken for itself.  Awful losses, lackluster offensive performances, and generally malaise had stricken the program.  But now, there seems to be a small light at the end of the tunnel.  It's not enough to forget the past few weeks (or past two years, no matter how you view them), but it should make discussion a little more lively.

As for the discussion, remember: please explain your yes or no vote in the comments.  If you feel strongly either way, make your case.

Last Week: 13.6%

Season Average: 32.3%
