Buonaguro frustrated with fans frustrations

LOUDONVILLE - To those who think Siena coach Mitch Buonaguro should be on the hot seat after a 2-5 start to the season - the coach see and hears what you're saying, but that's not what he's worried about.

Coach Buonaguro sat down with the media today two days after Siena's 88-82 overtime loss to UAlbany, which had Saints fans unhappy that they did not own the local bragging rights.

"I knew the reaction was going to be overreaction," Buonaguro said.

The Great Danes are playing much better and they deserved Saturday's victory.

"The faithful don't want to admit it, but this year, the game was very even," Buonaguro said.

Asked if a win on Friday against MAAC foe Fairfield would erase most negative thoughts, Buonaguro said he can't even think about anything other than getting the team better.

"My thing is we have to get our team better to play this game," he said. "I'm not worrited about what fans think. I have to get the team better, that's what I'm paid to do, is to coach, not worry about what people write on blogs, I can't worry about that."

Buonaguro did have one other coach come out and vocalize what he thought about fans who are frustrated with Siena's start.

On his radio interview this morning with WOFX, UAlbany coach Will Brown took Buonaguro's side.

"Unfortunately expectations are unrealistic," Brown said. "A lot of the people that are being critical don't really have any idea of what they're talking about or don't have the right to be critical. Mitch has been doing this for a very long time, he was part of a national championship staff at Villanova. He had success at Fairfield as a head coach and was a big part of the reason why Fran and those teams were so successful. I think everybody should give him the time he needs and deserves."

Interesting- if the game is so even…. Maybe I should buy UA season tickets since they are half the price of Siena’s.
