Sounds like maybe Wisconsin may not be in the basement next year. Very Happy

I wonder if Whalen is having a Swoopsian moment. Sometimes it's simply too hard for good pro players to go backward enough to relate to college kids. Expectations/demands may simply be too high...especially in this era where I think some coddling is required. That transfer portal is hanging over everybody.

I dunno....I think Lindsay has shown more possibility than Sheryl ever did. But yeah....she's NOT the "Hometown Alum Girl Makes Good" that everyone expected. (Yet)
Talking about Sheryl, it's interesting to note that the three Big Stars from the wnba's first *dynasty* - Sheryl, Tina, and Cynthia - all flopped as coaches at the collegiate level. Shocked

I wouldn't put Cooper in the same category as Swoopes and Thompson and I wouldn't say she flopped as a coach. I also think she's a better coach than Swoopes and Thompson. Cooper's team at Prairie View had 7 wins her first year there and jumped to 21 her second year. She did alright (24-9, 20-13) at UNC-Wilmington and her first go-round at Texas Southern, and had a .500 or above record at USC; not outstanding records at USC but not the worst either.

Cooper and her programs also collected NCAA violations like trading cards, so maybe that's not a good example either.

Yeah, I was gonna say.....her stats might not be utterly trash, so she exceeded the other 2 gals in that way, but with her school-jumping, the allegations, etc., her coaching status never approached her status as a star player.

Who would have ever guessed that hiring someone with zero experience to coach a major conference program would be a bad idea?

I didn't know about the NCAA violations. That's disappointing but I still think Cooper is a better xxx and ooo's coach-teacher than Swoopes and Thompson.

I find this announcement very odd. Carolyn Kieger received an extension at Penn State but for how long?

Michigan, Iowa, Purdue and Ohio State all have offered 7th grader (2027!) Sydney Savory. Her mom is an Assistant AD for Sport Administration at Michigan. Lisa Savory came to Michigan originally as the DOBO for Borseth. Savory played at BYU under her maiden name of Rathbun and is a Cadillac, MI native.

mzone, it sounds like Michigan has the inside track! 😀

Kid must be pretty special to attract so much attention at such an early age!
