Re: The Coaching Carousel 2017

Dan Hurley has been coaching at the D1 level for less than a decade. He's not a long-tenured coach with a consistent track record... so comparing experience here is a minimal factor. That's why a historic program like Georgetown have him in their sights. Look at Chris Mullin. St. John's came knocki...

To simplify: The Rams just won the A10 Tournament and advanced in the NCAA Tournament. Your move, fans. What you got? no doubt in my mind opening night is a guaranteed 7,657 As long as that's the night that they're unfurling the banners, there's no doubt in my mind either. Regardless of opponent.

Re: Congratulations to PC on their 4 Straight NCAA Tournament

Plenty of states with A LOT more D-1 institutions than little Rhody have 0 teams in the Dance. RI has two. Good for the hoops climate in the state.

Also, I believe four straight NCAAs is a record for PC. Not 100% sure on that.
