said this in other thread and it is worth repeating

anything BUT hippos
nothing will send you to the front of the laughing stock section quicker than choosing (or even entertaining the idea of) that absurd and awful nickname

Say what you want about the program the last few years - but GW has been churning out quality coaches

Former Assistant Ganiyat Adeduntan - head coach at Colgate
Former Assistant Diane Richardson - head coach at Towson, and now head coach at Temple
Former Assistant Zach Kunchar - associate HC at Towson, interim HC at Towson, associate HC at Temple
Former Assistant Laura Harper - head coach at Coppin State, now head coach at Towson
Former Assistant Megan Duffy - head coach at Marquette
Former Assistant Coach Bill Ferrera - associate head coach at Florida State
Former Assistant Melissa Dunne - associate head coach at St Joes
Former Assistant Gabe Lazo - assistant coach at Mississippi State

i'm sure i'm missing some, but nice representation at a nice mix of schools.

Anybody wanna find out if Nixon can count as a redshirt?

Don't count on the question being asked by a student reporter. Very poor questioning from the hatchet and wrgw reps at the press conference

With the good Caputo news comes the bad news of being sued by a former student-athlete

5. Revamping of Sports Information - when was the last time you saw GW regularly covered in local media? Lack of exposure hurts the program significantly both in terms of attendance and visibility with recruits.

I'm glad you mentioned this. I've always wondered what the GW SID does all day except show up for games and give stat sheets to the TV guys. GW is basically ignored in the DC press, nevertheless nationally, unless something really bad happens. That's pretty embarrassing.

You want local press coverage? Stop being a bottom feeder/laughing stock of a program, both in the conference and in non-league play. 

Here is a hint on how to get local coverage: https://gwsports.com/sports/2018/7/23/sports-m-baskbl-spec-rel-media-html.aspx

There seems to be frenzy going on in the Athletic Department today. The hiring may not be Caputo.

Maybe someone stole the Tricorn hats ?

RIP Colonials?

The name I am most intrigued by is Chris Caputo.  He has been with Jim Larranaga for 20 years at George Mason (during their Final 4 run) and at Miami.  He has repeatedly won polls and been otherwise regarded as a top assistant coach in the country.  He is Miami's Associate Head Coach and has been for some time now.  He was definitely considered three years ago and believe this is the type of up and comer GW could really use.

 

Caputo is holding out for the miami job once larranaga retires. Doubt he will leave. Guessing the school is too cheap to pay a true rising star so I fully expect a retread or a low major coach moving up

Caputo is gaining steam

I just checked @CoachingChanges twitter site and the couple of tweets they've posted about this were actually positive, some of you may recall that they didn't like how Nima and GW parted ways. They have multiple people who have access to the account so the guy who doesn't like JC(or GW) may not have posted yet.  

https://twitter.com/CoachingChanges/status/1503413112766038018

Nope - he posted something else that has since been deleted. And it was not positive at all and leans the way of what others posted in this thread (about something *else* going on that may have led to today's decision)

I'm guessing getting boat raced by an already-fired coach and UMass was the coup de grâce

Eagle Bank Arena wins when it comes to uses outside of athletics. 
I've seen some great shows there through the years. It is a great room for a concert

The fact they don't use the Smith Center for concerts more often then 1x a year always baffled me
