Rumors …. and the other side of the coin

Just meandering …

Yo, :) (or what/whomever that is): Why would Dusan Ancich want to leave the head coaching job at a better paying public school to take the position at St. Paul. DO NOT misinterpret that to be a slam on St. Paul’s storied program. The money differential is substantial. …

Speaking of $$, according to a well-placed source in a position to separate fact from fantasy, the rumor that St. Paul would receive a “$1 million gift” from the Willig family if one of their own was named the Swordsmen’s head football coach is bogus. Big time bogus. And does that really surprise anyone?

Yo, yo, Anonymous: The play of Whittier’s girls basketball players indeed is impressive. Notice any similarities between their’s and the boys program’s defensive intensity and execution? Works for one, works for the other. …

Yo, yo, yo, Cal High Parent, er, Paretn: You post in generalities concerning a coach’s abilities or lack thereof, yet you list no specifics with which you are uncomfortable. Just what is it specifically that you think is missing in the program? Even though you may disagree with it, you must assume his game plan is based upon the belief his players’ talents are suited to it. Eliminating innate talent (over which a coach has no control), the next three most important traits for a program are 1. Players buying into the program, 2. Players working hard both in practice and games, 3. Players getting along together (better known as the proverbial chemistry). Your program has all three.

Just curious: If you were the coach, what would you be doing differently?
