Where personalities can sometimes make a difference!
Who remembers any one player from Dukes last Championship season?
But you remember Coach K don't you?
Who can remember the players from Tarheel basketball? But we all remember Dean Smith.
Same goes for Bobby Knight
But down here at UNCW's level - which, face it, is FAR below UNC or Duke or Indianna - a different society exists. Winning is more important than the name of the coach - BUT - alumni want that named coach - they want the program to have that "notoriety" that a name coach brings to the program - and the convince the Chancellor to spend outrageous sums of money in the hope that this "name" coach can breathe new life into a program. Perhaps get some endorsement deals or local TV time or perhaps dare we dream - an NCAA bid.
We are a third tier college level team here and we don't win enough. I would hope that out Chancellor knows this and recognizes UNCW for what it should be recognized for. Higher education - first and foremost.
"We should be concentrating on scholastics rather than this absurd buffoonery"
(A quote from Vog's High School Physics teacher who was trying to calm the class down after beating our rival High school in basketball for the first time in years the night prior. He probably got the quote from some body else).
