  3. I think the bulls will do good this year and we won't need to worry about a new coach coming in

  13. Yesterday
  14. Of the 4, Forbes would have been the most intriguing. His extensive assistant coaching experience at the upper level is what really sets him apart from the other 3, whose resumes sure don't show any indication of them being an upgrade. CBG is only halfway thru his contract so this story is far from being played out .... but I'm kind of ambivalent about the extension thing but will wait to see what it actually entails if/when it comes out.

  17. I say we should see what coach does in the next TWO years before we go around passing extensions.
  18. All of that is very possible. The conference is tiny in the big scheme of things. But the man has done a lot for VT...certainly has surpassed the hockey program which still gets attention up here.
  19. Re: the AW cops. I'm from the old days and did work for a FL sheriff so thats a diff bag than the metro cops. Most city cops are union whereas working for a sheriff you can be fired for about anything. Nowadays, most agencies come under some form of union or bargaining entity. Old days were very different. You didnt have the overwhelming saturation coverage you have on most depts now. You were lucky to have any backup on hot calls. That makes you talk more/reason with folks instead of trying to take everybody down to the ground. If you couldnt?? then you dished out whatever it took to subdue or diffuse the situation. Yes, there were abusive cops who liked to dish it out. As imagined they were supreme jerks. In time they reached their end. Some of these guys(and gals) had bad issues. Anyway.....I remember stopping several of them when they went over the top. I have noticed that a lot of cops now have a detached tough ass manner about them. They aren't very approachable. I do think some are in the job for the wrong reason. Some work scared and some are nuts. Danger is part of the job. It would be tough to go to work scared every night. Possibly, the bad guys are more dangerous?? Younger?? Nutz?? Armed better?? I've got a niece that's a cop by Birmingham, we worry about her and pray for her safety in this insane world. Hopefully, the majority are good ones. I worked around the state on investigations and it was apparent, the bigger the department/city the worse the attitude. And that is all I got on that I think I'm outta ink....my quill is dry. Hey!! You still awake..?? zzzzzzzzzZZZZZZ
  20. Could be he just likes it there and no desire to go anywhere ...... or maybe all those 1st and 2nd place in conference finishes aren't impressive enough to suitors considering he's never won a first weekend NCAAT game or first round NIT game.

  22. I don't think the other 3 would be an upgrade nor would they be able to recruit as good as BG
  23. I rememeber seeing that he left to grab the job at Wake and forgot to take him off the list. Thoughts on the others?
  24. I don't think Steve Forbes will leave Wake Forrest to come to USF. He would have been a good hire. Should we need a coach, the others I don't think would be an upgrade
  25. Agreed - there is alot good mid/low-major coches, and we should consider going that route when we hire Gregory's replacement. Having said that, here's hoping Gregory can put it all together this season and the list becomes irrelevant.
  26. For twenty years I worked with a medium city's police department. In the course of that work, I had to interact with members, from Chief down of other departments. One thing I have learned - there are certain industries where every department has the same culture. It's uncanny. Power company lineman, Firefighter, and Police. No matter where you go, just the faces change. The prevailing police culture is sick and dishonest. They do good for the community and I wouldn't want their job, but that gives no one license to do the things that I have seen and heard. Remember, Lakeland had 10% of their sworn police force fired or otherwise disciplined for a sex scandal with a city worker. Tipp, sorry, but that has been my experience. Some are really good people stuck in a system that stinks. There's a young man that I mentored for years. He was dead set on becoming a police officer. I sat him down and told him what was going to happen on his first ride along and unfortunately, I was right. I told him that the first thing they are going to do is do something against the rules with him there to see if he is a "rat" or can he be "trusted". Sure enough. The boy is now a firefighter. Much better culture.
