Press conference at noon to announce Skinner dismissal

You've probably heard already, but BC is holding a press conference at noon ET to announce that Al Skinner has been fired. Skinner will not be there. Gene will. I expect little specifics, Gene to thank Al and just mention that he wants the program to go in a new direction.

It doesn't sound like he was "fired". The Herald is reporting that Skinner and Gene agreed to part ways last week. I think it's a slight, but important distinction.

Cornell's Newman Arena holds 4,473 fans. And that is what we generally pull in to Conte, so the transition should be really easy for Donohue.

That is a very important distinction given the Jags fiasco. If it's true, I hope GDF hammers that point because otherwise who the hell is gonna wanna coach here if you get fired whenever you talk to another school.

If you're a big name, you get big offers and if you're an up and comer, you stop a lot of places along the way. It's a mobile profession and that's just the way it is.

I just hope Skinner gets a shrine at the Cleveland Circle Applebee's like this guy.
