I'd say it is more like 80% Hicks'fault.

I don't know any of the guys on the team, but we need the type of player who will say "Screw it. My coach may be a hopeless loser, the other students don't care, but I'm going to play hard for myself and the guy playing next me."

Maybe that kind of "professional" attitude comes with age and maturity, but the players have to forge an "us against the world" mentality to have even a chance at success.
I don't know, maybe that's a lot to ask of a college kid, but these are smart kids at a good school. I'd like to hope they'd have a little more pride than what they've shown this year.

Think of it this way: Does having a lousy boss excuse poor effort on the job?
