    No. I'd rather just compete for last place with Nebraska and Colorado every year. Ego's are for losers.

    Re: Highly Successful Coaches = Big Egos

    Highly successful people in business, politics, etc. also generally have big egos. I guess I don't get the point of your post.

    Mark Few of Gonzaga is pretty mild-mannered and he's highly successful.

    Re: Highly Successful Coaches = Big Egos

    By asking if the AD wants one, I assume you are insinuating that Pollard has a big ego and can't/won't bring in a coach who might challenge his authority. I think that's rediculous.


    You can spend a lot of time and money picking out the perfect floral bouquet for your date ... but you're probably better off checking if you have bad breath and taking the porn out of the glove compartment.

    The moral: you gain more by not being stupid, than you do by being smart. Smart gets neutralized by other smart people. Stupid does not.

    Re: Highly Successful Coaches = Big Egos

    Does this just apply to men's basketball? Because I would say our highly successful women's basketball coach doesn't have a big ego.

    didnt he freak when the dmr reporter asked him a middle of the road question? I would say, yes, he does have a huge ego.

    here's my point. successful coaches have egos. Pollard needs to hire one for the Mens Bball team.

    Just having an ego doesnt make you good. Steve Alford had plenty of ego at Iowa.
