    Daily Dose: Turgeon's new league bigger, faster
    Published Thursday, February 07, 2008
    With the halfway point of the Big 12 season approaching, Texas A&M coach Mark Turgeon was asked Monday to note the difference between the Missouri Valley, where he coached Wichita State, and his new league.

    "Obviously the players are bigger and stronger and faster, but I knew that coming in," Turgeon said. "So are my guys (at A&M). I think the biggest difference is the road crowds. We've run into some tough crowds at Creighton and Southern Illinois, but the road crowds (in the Big 12) are a little bit louder, except than at Creighton and Wichita State, than in the Valley."

    The question was prompted at Monday's Big 12 teleconference with Turgeon set to face another former Valley coach, Greg McDermott, as A&M traveled to Iowa State.

    A&M beat McDermott, who previously coached at Northern Iowa, and ISU 69-51 on Tuesday.

                  Fatguy, that's a classic... you'd better head to the buffet line with cousin Eddie and get some brain food.

                      I disagree, not everybody would be 19-4 with the type of talent Turgeon has at Texas A&M. Coaching still plays a part in it, although having talent certainly helps. Nobody wants to be at a school where the talent level isn't quite there, and it's definitely not there at WSU right now.

                        When Mark made his rant about when aTm wins its Gillespie but when they lose its his, I'm thinking he should take some of Gregg's losses too.

                          No, most good caoches would be at 20 and 3 or 21 and 2.

                            lol, funny Zardoz, very doubtful. No way could I coach A&M to a 19-4 record this year, not everybody is that good. But since you think you're so good, go ahead and apply for the LSU job. If you get it, then I want you to go undefeated next year. Either that or get a clue.

                              Except LSU doesn't have the talent that aTm has.
