08:27 AM ET 02.08 | Mick Cronin is standing his ground, even though the timing for doing so may threaten his success. Cronin picked a heckuva time to draw this line in the dirt. Heading into the most important and defining stretch of games in his coaching life isn't the moment to be playing tug-of-wills with his best player. But that's where Cronin and Yancy Gates find themselves, as the UC Bearcats convene the Madness-or-bust portion of their program. ... What's beyond questioning is this: Without Gates, the Bearcats are an NIT team, again, and Cronin's head will remain squarely in the tight noose of lousy public opinion.

I was always told you take care of issues like this early in a player's career and early in the season.
