    Re: Bruce Van De Velde searching for new coach

    Maybe he can get the old gang back together and bring in LE with Wayne Morgan

    If anyone cared about LT basketball, they should be very, very worried right now.

    I actually think Wayne might do okay there.

    Re: Bruce Van De Velde searching for new coach

    Wayne knows how to recruit well. In the game of college basketball, as said best by Roy Williams, coaching a team is 70 percent recruiting and 30 percent of "real" coaching. He will fit well at a small school.


    There are not many crowds or places in the country that have a better impact on the game than at Iowa State. The Cyclone fans are truly a sixth man. The place is so loud and always a fantastic crowd." - Former Kansas and current North Carolina head coach Roy Williams

    Re: Bruce Van De Velde searching for new coach

    Wayne would be an OK hire. At least he's a proven recruiter.

    I really don't understand his love for Lebo and Steve McClain. I was on suicide watch when I heard he was a strong candidate for our job back in the day. The crazy guy at Wyoming didn't exactly create excitement for me.

    He didn't work out a Long Beach State...

    I appreciate what Wayne did and he was very good at what he did under Eustachy but he isn't cut-out to be a head coach IMO.

    I guess I should have used the jimlad after that short list.

    Why should I credit John Walters for something I couldn't care less about?

    Why are you posting in a thread about something you could not care less about?

    As to your question, it is common courtesy to cite where you copied and pasted from.

    Re: Bruce Van De Velde searching for new coach

    You all do realize that 1. Morgan already has a job at Hofstra and 2. LT isn't that much of a step up from Hofstra...


    Chuck Lidell: I paint my toenails with pink and black polish. Problem is, I get more paint on my toes and on the carpet than on my nails. Any advice?

    Re: Bruce Van De Velde searching for new coach

    That is the exact same list he had when he fired Larry. The same. Right down to Ray lopes who got busted the next year cheating. Kelvin Sampson clone.


    Nobody but HB knows for sure. You pretty much know nothing....like Knownothing would like to say.
