    I disagree about Loyola's coach. I was really impressed with his offensive and defensive schemes — especially their ball movement, screens and backdoor cuts. He obviously screwed up by leaving Dike in for so long, but I kind of understand why he rolled the dice given the trouble Dike's size was creating for us in the post in terms of foul trouble.

    It was meant as a humorous statement playing of the previous porn reference comment.

    Relax a little.

    On a side note - I am Catholic so I was only trying to joke. Besides - Layola is not a real University - its mythical. Like Petersen.

    Peterson is real, Pikapp. He went to Layola University before he transfered to Mason and took us to the Final Four.

    JMU just hired Georgia Southern's coach, Mark Byington. Played at UNCW. Only notable achievement is his team beat us a couple times recently. Let the hot dogs fly.

    If we had hired a coach with Byington's record, the Fire Dave crowd would be up in arms.

    That said, he looks like a reasonably good hire for JMU.

    JMU is the poster child of mediocrity. Nothing they do should be applauded by mason fans. I mean Rowe f*cking sucks as a coach

    Football focused sports school. Curious what Byington will make at JMU as a coach.

    https://www.dnronline.com/sports/ge...cle_080d683f-ea55-5455-99e5-d0565aceda57.html:

    "The agreement between Byington and JMU is for six years at a base salary of $375,000. With supplemental income for aspects such as fundraising activities, ticket sales promotion and other responsibilities beyond coaching the total compensation would be $450,000 per year, according to the school."

    thanks. His base isn’t much less than Paulsen, but Paulsens supplemental is more.
