Need more local guys in college coaching.

Where is Preston now

Preston Laird has been at Arkansas Little Rock the last couple years- did you hear he moved?

Nope...I have not.

Was just curious. Hope he continues to succeed and move up the coaching Tree.

Passat25, if you will be kind enough to share with me how to properly post title threads I will be happy to try to do it better. I may be fixing to turn 50 in a few days but I can certainly learn new tricks.

I had no problem understanding that this was a Willie Kemp thread. I had no problem remembering who Willie Kemp was/is. Everything else is in the thread.

Just use a verb. Would have helped us know what it was about better without having to click... separating the difference between:
"Willie Kemp returns"
"Willie Kemp arrested"
"Willie Kemp running for president of his local HOA"

That's why you read the content and not let random things run through your mind before getting the information.

Maybe we could open up your post for grammar critique. For message board use I don't care.

It's like going to an HOA meeting and having the older residents bicker at each other about nothing.

Usually only the older residents show up because they are the ones that care.

I mean, the dude DID ask for tips on how to make it better. I suggested a verb, and now there's a full scale brawl going on.

RE: Willie Kemp win win!
Don't need no stinkin verb. How about the above? That way people don't think the bad things. But they click to find out the good thing. win win

'Win' can be a verb or a noun. So .....it's a great word. When used twice--the greatness is multiplied ten to a hundredfold.

My experience has been that the really older ones show up because it’s an event for them and they get to bicker about nothing. I’m in the “I care but all the work has been done in the background so stop your babbling and let’s get this required meeting over with” crowd.

RE: Willie Kemp
I like it. We are bringing in coaches who are proud to be Tigers. When your coaches have a strong connection, like Coach Penny and Coach Kemp, you tend to instill pride in the team, something that could give the team a little extra when needed in a tight game.

There are some tough kids on the team now

He needs to inspire them to turn it over a little less
Suspect they will

Right you are Mimi. I guess most of the players needing some inspired toughness have left via the transfer portal.

By destroying his confidence. Because Cal only knows one way to motivate people. His intimidation doesn't work on all people.

I would love to have seen Kemp play for a coach like Penny.

This is great news, both for our players and for Willie! Once a Tiger, always a Tiger. And Willie was one of the best, and one of my all-time favorites. I hope he gets a standing ovation at the first game.

He was recruited over throughout his playing time here. And "screwed over" may be a bit hyperbolic...

I like the thread title.

Only improvement might be to make it Willie "The" Kemp...
