Truth be told, the guy from W&M has done a helluva job and his teams are very fundamentally sound. A call to him might prove fruitful.

Great motivator, work ethic, and enthusiasm. Very personable.
Good recruiter. We had the players to make the NCAA the past two years.
Not so good with Xs and Os.

Jim Corrigan was in her stead at the caravan. I wonder if they'll offer him the job?

That's not going to advance the program, IMO

Definitely not good at the Xs and Os. During the first round of the CUSA tournament, the other team (Rice?) had 3 players chasing Simms around the perimeter. It took until halfway through the 3rd period for Barefoot...and Corrigan, I might add...to tell her to dump it under the basket to the wide open forwards. Common sense would tell you that if 3 players are guarding 1, that 2 players are wide open.

I'm not defending the coaching by any means. But what you're implying is Simms was good enough to get drafted but needed to be told to pass the ball to wide open teammates?

You're not going to get Nancy or Anne; that's just dreaming.

I realize that times have changed from the 70's and 80's in the world of women's college basketball, but there is no reason that ODU should have fallen as much as they have over the last 10 - 20 years. With the right coach and enough dedication put into righting the ship, I believe that much of what has been lost can be fixed.

wish we could get Ticha but she's doing well as a sports agent, maybe one day.

RE: Rumor: Barefoot to UNCW
the women's program is in a bad state right now. Losing 7 players to graduation and transfers, as well as an incoming point guard. Less then 7 scholarship players on the team remaining, not including whatever other recruits we have coming in(though its possible that they transfer too) Regardless, I never felt Karen could field a NCAA team even with 15 all americans because she just is not a good technical coach. She is of the mindset of having one super star player who takes 30 shots a game with a surrounding cast of 5 ppg contributors. She is a wonderful person and I wish her well, but we need a breath of fresh air into this team. I doubt if Selig will get this right either.

Or maybe even Wendy, though she was not doing so great when we let her go. Maybe there were other circumstances that caused her to choke those last few seasons.

RE: Rumor: Barefoot to UNCW
I couldn't tell you any specific names, but it seems that there has to be some up and coming assistants from Power 5 programs that are striving to become a head coach. I say let's find one that would be a good fit for us. Under no illusions that ODU will ever be a national player anymore, but a return to the NCAA tourney more often than not should be a goal.

We have a very nice venue and facilities to attract a young hungry coach.
