Well, at least they spelled my name right.
Just so we are all straight on my statements today that have caused some people to take shots at me now. 1. I said I believe Dana will end up being the greatest coach in MVC history after he is done with his time at CU...which I believe will be in around 10 years. I know Coach Iba, Coach Allen and others were in this league but it's harder now and Dana has built an amazing program here in Omaha with record success. Did those guys ever get 18k for a home game? Does any Valley school even get close to CU's attendance numbers? Nope and Dana's program is why the Qwest Center amazes people. A school of less than 8k, in a Mid-Major Conference - pulling Top 15 attendance numbers is amazing. 2. I said "When you're a Jackass" to describe the behavior of Double G last night...is that the same thing as saying he IS a Jackass...I don't know. Doesn't really matter to be honest, people will hear what they want to hear but just want it accurate as to what I really said exactly.
Look - Gregg Marshall is not liked in the MVC. Period. I've spoken with numerous people who work with and around the Valley and it's a badly kept secret that he doesn't have any friends with the power people in St. Louis. I don't know if WSU cares if their coach is liked or not but Marshall is quickly becoming the most hated man in the league. I will say it again : He's not at Winthrop anymore - he's in the Valley and this is a bigger stage. He can't behave this way and not lose the little bit of respect people had for him after year 1.
This latest episode just begins year 2 for him. I just wonder if he plans on getting thrown out of the MVC tourney again this year?
Mr. Marshall - Holding up how much class he has
