There's been a lot of Hurley articles out there since he's come to Rhode Island. This is by far the best one. Thanks for posting.

Re: NY Post Hurley Article

To me if the job opens up Maryland would be the one to watch. And I agree with the person who mentioned Notre Dame. Syracuse would probably be the 3rd. If Hurley leaves my prediction is he goes to one of those 3 schools.

Re: Donaldson slamming Rhody fan base on Twitter

The opponent matters, too. When you're playing lousy competition on a night in and night out basis people don't have the same excitement. I would bet that last night would have sold out, for example, if this was UMass of the 90's instead of the UMass today.

Boston area radio has a selective memory and only talks about local teams within the 495 corridor? Get out.
