    Coach Mac Quote

    I got in this profession because I love to coach basketball and I love to help young people grow. If winning every gets in the way of that, then Iíve got to get out of it. This young man needs to grow up and if it costs me a couple of wins along the way, then so be it.

    Yeah. If he lifts the suspension he will get ripped huge by the local media. He should know better.

    Good. He needs to stay suspended. That would make us look desperate(we practically are).

    Yeah, should've used the Ms. Cleo skills to know that Lucca would leave and Boozer would blow out his knee.

    If Colvin has exceeded expectations, if he's done everything they've asked and more, I say lift it early. But only the coaching staff knows that. They need to do what they think is best. If there is still something for Colvin to learn from sitting, keep him sitting. Personally I don't feel like I have enough information to make that judgement.

    Didn't say he should not have suspended him. Saying he should not lift the suspension, at all!

    Re: Coach Mac Quote

    What if the team wants him back or the team agrees to let him back? They are the ones that he is really hurting. Would you all be ok with that situation?


    I removed it.

    Re: Coach Mac Quote

    I am good with this either way, however if he lifts the suspension I want it lifted by the team. I want to hear that the whole team came to him and said to lift it.


    It's all snark from here on out

    This would be a good way to go. If you're thinking about lifting it, make sure everyone on your team agrees with it. That's all that matters, screw the media and anyone else who argues with it if your entire team and coaching staff agrees with it.

    Excellent point/idea.

    I also think you could shorten it, but not reinstate him right away.

    Say he can come back for the OU game, if he does x,y,& z between now and then. That would hurt the next two games, but gets him back two games early.

    HAHA. No.

    His words were very clear and they were applauded at the time. Now that there might be some actual pain with it, everyone wants to flip-flop.
