    Playing for a parent.

    I think this is an bad idea. Look what happened to Cody Hawkins. I wonder how awkward that is? I just think that it is never a good idea to play for a parent. Thoughts?

    Re: Playing for a parent.

    Is there an instance other than Ferentz where it's worked out really well?

    Re: Playing for a parent.

    Are you talking about at the college level or just in general?

    Didn't coach Ferentz kick one of his kid's off the team for public intox or something? You could argue even for him it only works out 50% of the time.

    That's why it was probably it was a good thing Doug went to UNI instead of playing for his dad, oh wait.

    He's already been tanking for four years, I think he's done enough damage to the school.

    Re: Playing for a parent.

    When Valpo made their run in the tournament a couple of years ago, I thought that the coach's son was the point guard.

    What about pro? Didn't Cal Sr. coach Cal Jr?

    I don't know about kicking him off, but I know that James (the current center) was suspended and had to undergo therapy and all that fun stuff that goes along with multiple underage drinking/public intox violations.

    I'm not sure if Brian got into any trouble.

    His third son is just 16, so it couldn't have been him.

    Re: Playing for a parent.

    Not only is it difficult for the kid, but how about for the coach/dad?! I mean it HAS to be difficult to keep your son out of the lineup if that's what's better for the team.

    It's probably best, at least in college, to not have a father/son tandem on the same team.
