Thank you Al Skinner
When discussing TOB, the media liked to laud him for rebuilding BC after the "gambling scandal." Unfortunately because of personalities, media spin and the nature of the two different sports, people rarely recognized the monumental rebuilding Al Skinner did with the basketball program. Jim O'Brien left behind little talent and scorched the earth with recruits. After a rough start with Al, we were soon playing exciting basketball and at the top of the Big East. Skinner leaves the program in a much better place than he found it. I thank him for his class, his success and for plenty of exciting, memorable basketball.
