    Another great GIF possibility.
    Can't remember how I got the last one inline, and I don't have time to figure this one out, so here's the link

    And thus did Calipari begin his reputation.

    One did not want to mess with Chaney. Players (even his own), opponents, refs, and so on. That "attitude" was eventually his undoing, but what the he*l, he was already in his 70s.

    While Cosby attended Temple and Chaney coached at Temple (many years later), they are vastly different men.

    You would have to ask Coach Jans to be certain. He might have insisted on zone under his own basket, other than that, based on my conversations with him I would guess not. OTH, I am not CJ and I don't speak for him. His ability to insist with HCGM would not be productive in any case!

    JB will lead the team to Victory with a lot of help from his friends.

    Ohh, I don't think your wrong. Chris Jans was the only guy that could talk him to playing it occasionally it seems.

    The Owl

    To honor Temple’s beginning as a night school for ambitious young people, the nocturnal owl was adopted as its mascot. The owl represents wisdom and knowledge and is known for being perceptive, resourceful and courageous. Hooter the Owl is a part of Temple’s Spirit Squad, making appearances at football and basketball games, alumni events and more. Each February, mascots from all over the city of Philadelphia come to Temple to celebrate Hooter's birthday at a home basketball game.

    Temple University's more than 130-year history is rich with tradition, from the Owl, to the Temple “T,” to the fight song, Temple pride shines.

    I had avoided this subject till you brought FVV into it.

    FVV was the Freshman who learned in the Final Four what it was like to handle the ball against a press when fouls were being let go. That was when Malcolm was out with 4 fouls. If he could go back, Coach Marshall would have done more to prepare him for that situation.

    Coach left Grant in the game, up only a few points, on the road, getting hacked over and over again. This was the perfect time in his development to expose him to that. Grant will be better prepared having gone though it come tourney time than FVV was.
    I’ve had people ask me why Sherfield didn’t get yanked while he was struggling to make his way through the mugging. When I reminded them that 3G is always several steps ahead and was coaching the kid up for March rather than to just win the game, it was like a light turned on and they finally seemed to understand. I hadn’t even considered the FVV angle, but it fits the same narrative.
