Also as was stated the effectiveness of yelling/screaming/raising your voice is all about how it is used. If someone who is mainly composed starts yelling, you are going to listen to figure out what has that person irate. If the person is always screaming about everything, you are much more prone to tune it out over time, and no matter how useful the point was it won't be an effective technique. It is just another point so far that Spiker has done very well. A coach needs to be able to motivate his players, the best coaches at any program as ones that can lead and motivate. Coming from West Point, those qualities likely are his strong points, which is a great starting point and he has shown a strong start at Drexel.

2. I saw the Spiker/Bruiser tweet too. If you look back through Bruiser's tweets, he stopped at just about every major D1 practice this side of the Mississippi through the first couple of months of the season. Also, the only advice that Bruiser needs to be giving Spiker is where to buy his suits. That's about where it needs to end.

Oh, don't get me wrong. Wholeheartedly agree, I dont want Bru giving Zach ANY coaching advice. I just like that there's not a need to completely suppress the past. Spiker is embracing DU MBB history of all eras which is awesome. From Thompson and Rullo to Goss to Givens to his meeting with former players from 1983 to 2012 back in August. Embracing the school, program and history. Very cool.

To add to that, those of you who were on the CAA Zone 15 years ago, may remember the likes of Powelton Pete and that short guy who used to be a manager under Herrion who used to troll the boards. Those guys showed that there was a lot of animosity toward the firing of Seymour back then. I remember hearing that former players during that era were having a reunion at a LaSalle game out of protest.

By hearing that Bruiser and Spiker and hanging out together, that shows representation at the Bruiser crew was willing to accept their fates, not be bitter, and be accepting of moving on and passing the baton to the new coaches. From a fan perspective, I think that's important.

Again, there has been no doubt Spiker is hitting all of the right buttons to have success here and bring everybody back on board and build something special again.
