    Default thank you coach G.

    I don't remember his last name but I believe he was formerly from EWSC. Lost his job and coached here for a couple of years. Up until that time we won our games by outscoring the other team. That was the period when I noticed vast improvement in our defense. His influence on coach Few has been noticeable ever since. We all owe him a big debt of gratitude.

    is that you Coach Giac?

    kidding.

    couldn't agree more, a definite and definitive shift in defensive play/culture when he arrived.

    I personally believe that both Ray and Ken Bone had a significant influence on our increased emphasis on defense.

    +1, Ken will have a significant influence in improving Pepperdine's fortunes. He's just what Romar needs, a great X's and O's coach that complements Romar's ability to recruit.

    I'm curious what Coach Giacoletti is doing these days. My cursory online search just now didn't reveal anything since he resigned from Drake Univ. head position in 2016. Is he out of basketball completely?

    Coach Fews ability to bring in other former head coaches has been a real blessing and advantage for GU.
    EWSC = EWU. Showing my age.

    Heard him interviewed ( EWU's Larry Weir's podcast?) & posted here (before practice started?); he's doing play by play for a network in the Midwest for a couple of different leagues.

    Credit also needs to go to Few for taking in the input. You would be shocked by the amount of head coaches who wouldn't

    I will never forgive Utah for firing RayG. One of the worst firings that has taken place in the past 25 years of college basketball. Unlike what most coaches do, RayG decided to rebuild Utah from the ground up with his own dudes once Bogut left and Utah was forced to rebuild. No transfers. Freshmen. By the time he FINALLY got the program back on track, they canned him. Of course the next coach was made to look like a genius when he took "Ray's team" to the NCAA tourney.

    I was trying to come up with a pithy quip Zagster but I just couldn't find the energy.
