    I'm sure JT III will be a very good coach over the years.
    I hope he doesn't share his father's legacy of excluding talent because of their race.

    No, he didn't say mortal consequences. He actually said he'd kill him if he got near 'Zo again and dared him to try.

    I believe it, you didn't mess with JT when it came to his Hoyas. That's why I found the whole us vs.them Hoya paranoia image he created in the 80s to be kinda cool, it was one of the few college teams to really get into America's imagination from a pop-culture standpoint beyond basketball (Fab 5 and Phi Slamma Jamma would be 2 others). Just amused me that it occured at a preppified elitist private school like Georgetown where the typical student was SO contrary to that image.

    How about Danny Ferry? That was the summer before his senior year and I believe he'd been a 1st or 2d team all american the year before. I can't recall the details now, but I do seem to remember that Thompson made some odd cuts at the olympic trials that raised a lot of eyebrows at the time, and even moreso a couple months later when they became the 1st U.S. team to lose in the olympics (at least legitimately--I don't count the 72 robbery).
