Choc Full of UConn
- Aug 26, 2011
Tamika Catchings. Kara and Catch seem to be the 2 that most UCONN fans really like...Is there another Tenn grad that Boneyarders root harder for? Is there another Tenn grad that Boneyarders wish to see have more success? Is there a Tenn grad that Boneyarders have more esteem for? I think not.
Kara Lawson is liked and respected on this board. The general consensus here is despite the fact that she went to Tennessee, it will not be held against her.Is there another Tenn grad that Boneyarders root harder for? Is there another Tenn grad that Boneyarders wish to see have more success? Is there a Tenn grad that Boneyarders have more esteem for? I think not.
Neither of those may happen until after Geno retires. However, I think her respect for both Geno and Pat will go up after a few seasons on the sidelines. Way up.Tamika Catchings. Kara and Catch seem to be the 2 that most UCONN fans really like...
It's all puppies and kitties with Kara until she gets a recruit that Geno really wanted. Or Duke beats UCONN.
One can only assume that a number of ranked recruits will seriously consider playing for her. I expect her to do very well on the recruiting circuit for years to come. The school sells itself. The question is do the top ranked players WANT to play for HER? I believe she'll run a clean program free of controversy player complaints.That manner of communicating with her players will get her lots of recruits but the real test is what she's able to achieve with them. That will take a couple years to evaluate but she sounds like she's got a great mindset.
Not unless she proves can recruit, like the saying goes "Its not about the X's and O's, its about the Jimmies and the Joes".
JB, I think the more up and coming young girls see her in games, video clips and interviews in the months and years to come, many of them (and their parents) are going to be drawn to her and Duke like a moth to a flame.
That speech means she is good at speaking, something we already knew. It remains to be seen whether or not she will be a good coach. I would like to see her become one. She seems to be a very classy person.
I believe she just stopped in to speak to the team before a workout since by rules she can't conduct the workout. That would explain the coffee container.I like Kara and wish her well. Her speech here was pure Geno. She has done her homework and taken the wax on wax off of her past coaches.
The water / Gin & Tonic cup has to go. Other than the whistle you have nothing the players do not. You show respect to get respect.
I'm sure she will do fine and I will take a beating here for my opinion....
