re: Former North Texas head coach Tony Benford is expected to join LSU as an assistant - SouthOfSouth
[quote]Howdy folks, North Texas fan here. Just a couple quick things here... Benford was a great recruiter, and as others have said, assistant coach. Even as a head coach he could always recruit. We just had an all-freshman conference USA player and have had several top-100 Texas recruits since he...

[quote]Please name me 5 coaches in college basketball that never played the game? I figured that you couldn't. Check mate![/quote] Well off the top of my head I can think of Buzz Williams, Tom Crean, and Wade. But Im sure there are a lot more that you just had no idea about. Frank Martin leadi...

[quote] The scale is unbalanced in the favor of white men while the labor force (players) are nearly 70% African American. [/quote] you dont have to play college basketball to be a basketball coach. Logic = flawed. [quote] Will Wade was a ball boy yet afforded to learn the game from the exclus...

re: Former North Texas head coach Tony Benford is expected to join LSU as an assistant - SouthOfSouth
[quote]This is an accurate statement and one that is often overlooked when people call for more diversity in Division 1 head coaching.[/quote] I just don't understand how you can bash LSU for hiring a white guy if you understand the issue. It isn't with LSU. They have proven they are willing to h...

re: Former North Texas head coach Tony Benford is expected to join LSU as an assistant - SouthOfSouth
If you are truly looking for a more diverse coaching community the biggest culprits are small schools. A school like LSU is in the market for an established head coach. We aren't the type of school to hire an assistant to be our head coach, while that is more the job of the mid major programs to pul...

[quote]I agree - apparently being white is part of that head coach skill set. [/quote] Dude you are so far off your rocker. You truly are awful. [quote] But, I think we would have been better served if the school had made a good faith effort to find a qualified black head coach. [/quote] ...

[quote]This cannot be defended. [/quote] Once again... That whole logic thing really isn't your strongsuit... Playing basketball and coaching basketball is a totally different thing. You dont have to be a good player to be a coach. IDK how to get this idea that different positions require a di...

re: Former North Texas head coach Tony Benford is expected to join LSU as an assistant - SouthOfSouth
[quote]So Coach Jones was too incompetent and inept to be the head basketball coach at LSU, but the coach who coach who couldn't carry on Coach Jones' legacy at UNT is competent enough to be an assistant? [/quote] Your logic doesn't stand up very well. assistant coach vs head coach is a totally d...

re: Former North Texas head coach Tony Benford is expected to join LSU as an assistant - SouthOfSouth
[quote]The thing that concerns me though, is if he has strong recruiting ties to the state of Texas, why couldn't he get enough Texas players to help him field at least an average team at North Texas? [/quote] That's definitely fair. I hope he will be able to sell LSU easier than UNT. It is tough...

[quote]we'll have to see how the staff looks as a whole before grading this hire anyway[/quote] 100% agree. A staff should be looked at as a whole, not the parts. He wants someone to recruit Texas, and he wants someone to recruit Louisiana... If this is your guy with long term ties to Texas, t...

Doesn't seem like bashing as much as questioning and wanting more info. Most in here don't seem like they are out of line in trying to understand the hire. Don't need to get all defensive......

re: What Are Possible Alternate Schedules vs. A&M Given Thursday's Forecast - SouthOfSouth
Im not 100% sure where the rule comes from (NCAA or SEC) but I did hear it on ESPN Radio yesterday. I don't have a problem at all with the rule. More than the plane tickets is the hotel rooms. Not reasonable to ask hotels to hold 20 rooms in case it rains. Just not a feasible thing to do. You hav...

re: Thoughts on taking a gap year to work with a non-business degree before MBA? - SouthOfSouth
If you are really looking at MBS with concentration in Finance, I'd suggest just doing the Masters in Finance. I did that while working part time and was able to pay off everything while I was doing it. Plus its only 3 semesters. Any of these business masters programs though are going to expect you ...
