Countdown to Opening Tip

Hey guys,


Hope everyone is having successful practices. We're now on our fourth week of practice and it's starting to show how everyone is playing. We have had some really great showings by some freshmen and returning starters. One thing I've struggled with, and it may just be me, but why have the same people on the same team every practice with a switch here and there. It just seems like you don't have that gel with the other girls if they don't get an opportunity to play…

"The Menace IS Society"

Hello my STARZ, life is good isn’t it??  If you don’t see it that way, we need to figure out why.  Life’s a game of crests and troughs; you just need to learn how to surf!  Ok, enough Zen for today!  On to the next one.  Keeping with the themes that influenced my childhood, I decided to name this blog “The Menace IS Society,” in a play of words from one of my favorite movies ever!!  Sit back and enjoy!

He chronicles his… Continue

Brad Stevens Pyramid of Success

I was at the Basketball Coaches Association of Michigan clinic this weekend, which by the way had an awesome lineup, and Brad Stevens spoke a bit on his newly created Pyramid of Success.  I think it's important to note that he did say his pyramid is definitely inferior to that of John Wooden's and contains far fewer principles but this system works for him. It is based heavily on Bill Walsh's book -…

Bruce Pearl's Former Assistants

Gary Parish from CBSSports wrote a really interesting piece about life after Tennessee for Bruce Pearl's former assistants.  At UT Pearl's assistants Steve Forbes and Jason Shay had salaries of $200,000 and $160,000 respectively. Working together at Northwest Florida State, a junior college in the panhandle, Forbes as the head coach is making $60,000 and Shay is making $20,000 as a JUCO assistant.  Quite a dramatic drop from…
