Quick basketball and coaching thoughts
Not a good night for the basketball team. Now we know Harvard was not an aberration. This team still makes too many mistakes. Miami's two best players were nonfactors and fouled out and we still lost. The refs didn't help BC's case, but ultimately the offense was the problem. They did not take good shots and with Raji dinged up, there were not enough second chance points. Every game is going to be an adventure this year. I'll have more thoughts on the loss Sunday afternoon.
Once again the Globe is all over the place in its coverage. I agree that with their lead that Spaz remains the frontrunner. I strongly disagree that Barry Gallup even has a shot. I imagine that was a courtesy interview at best. I also challenge Blaudschun's assertion that interviews wrapped up Saturday. I know of at least one going on Sunday. I strongly challenge that '...[Steve] Addazio appears to be the primary "outside" candidate"'. I think Addazio would be a good fit, but I don't think he's been interviewed yet and know that he is not the primary outsider.
I know I am being more coy about the process this time around, but I am not going to leak any interviewee who is a current head coach and not public yet. The last thing we need is for one of them to turtle up when things leak. As for for public names, I would rank them as follows:
1. Spaz (way out in front)
As of me writing this late Saturday, Addazio has not had a face to face yet with anyone.
-- Roy Johnson thinks Gene should interview Charlie Strong
-- An ACC reporter's follow up the Holtz angle. No comments all around.
