And who else did we interview besides Lappas? Jim Baron (http://cbs.sportsline.com/collegebasketball/story/6995075). Jim Larranaga, presently his George Mason team is tied with Drexel for third in the Colonial Conference (5-3; 12-5 overall). Fran McCaffrey is not exactly bringing UNC Greensboro to n...

I mean, it seemed like a good idea at the time to hire Lappas, so what difference do the results make? To whom did it seem a good idea? Marcum? I think a number of people were uneasy with the hire. Lappas was not threatening to dominate Big East bball, and had he been, would he have even glanced at...

Bru was bought out - a stupid and fiscally irresponsible move by Marcum. Bru should have been given his contract term to improve his job performance and been re-evaluated based upon his performance when the contract was due to expire. Same for Lappas. I'm not going to support the Lappas hire, but m...

In Lappas case, letting his guys rest, as nearly as I can make out.

The point is that these media time outs are part of the game. I always felt that Calipari used these amazingly well to manage a game when he had a very short bench. Lappas has a very short bench (and a very short team, but that's a different issue) and could use the media time outs in conjunction wi...

Yes indeedy, Roadtrip, but the problem for us fans is that the administration will be making a call on how long they and the basketball team can stand the gentle ministrations of Lappas before they are forced to find some money to deal with the problem. When they make a move, it will cost even more ...

Freeman rebounding

After the game, Freeman said that he didn't get the rebounds because he was boxing, while AA came in and grabbed the boards.

Finding coaches in the A 10

One of the things that contributes to a program's success is tradition. It builds stability through the lean times. If a person has ties to an area, then they have extra motivation to stay a school. That might argue for a Barbee or Kellogg. For ex., Martelli and his team are all about Philly. I read...

So, Marcum is gone, his replacement ran to Texas, Thor is in no position to do anything, the best football coach we've had in years has just decided to bolt, if Lappas lasts into next year it will be a crime...I guess the only way to look at this and stay sane is that it is a fortuitous chance to hi...

Bizzare rumor

Not that the reasons behind this situation are necessarily helpful in solving it, but I'd always wondered why we went for Lappas when there were other good coaches out there, some of whom were interviewed. One story I got from a reasonably reliable source suggested that Marcum agreed to take Lappas ...
