Harrassmiss is embroiled in a new spat….yet another windmill to tilt at. This time it’s Mallett who had the confidence and gravitas to be a bit critical. Off he went on another somewhat insane rant.
But he is a genius his supporters opine. What about his record since the WC….2 years of 8/5….no semblance of a challenge for the RC, no progress on broadening our tactics, slow emergence of new talent, embarrassing conflicts with officials.
Ah, say his supporters, that’s not Harrassmiss that’s Nienaber. If Harrassmiss hadn’t handed over the reigns we would have probably won a RC and had a much stronger record.
But here’s the thing Harrassmiss never needed to hand over the reigns. He did that voluntarily. He has been given unprecedented freedom to act, much more than White or Meyer. But with that comes accountability……he is responsible for results. If Nienaber wasn’t competent he should never have been given the job….he decided that.
So Harrassmiss owns the 8 and 5 record. And if that’s because Nienaber can’t do the job he needs to formally become the coach again. What’s that? You say he never left, well that’s just outrageous.
