    Practice Facility

    For those that are surprised at the number of coaches apparently interested, I for one am not. I firmly believe the practice facility is the driving factor in all the coaches' interest! Since it is one of the best in the land, it has the ability to bring in some big time talent with a new coach early on in the next coach's tenure here, even with the current state of the program. That, and I think JP may be willing to throw more money towards the next coach than initially thought.

    Re: Practice Facility

    You are absolutely right.

    There are good coaches in major conferences that don't have this type
    of facility at their disposal.

    I was thinking a guy like Kevin Stallings who spent time in Indiana, Kansas and
    Illinois prior to going to Vandy would take a look at this opportunity.

    I think he makes like 1.4 million a year. The problem is believe the guy has a huge
    buyout something along the lines of $2 million so we probably will not be able to swallow that.

    Re: Practice Facility

    Yeah, the practice facility was the worst mistake that JP has ever made...


    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?

    Yup, U of M and Tubby Smith are still waiting to get a practice facility. They're currently waiting behind a line for a new softball/baseball field.
