    Would Brad Edwards have the foresight to make that call and take that chance?

    We would immediately get a national jolt.

    Pitino's Patriots sounds nice.

    The man has won everywhere he has gone.

    Would immediately get us back to national buzz.

    Or are you happy with our current state?

    No scandal ridden coach would ever be hired here Mason would lose games over getting a national buzz for 2 days. This isn't the Redskins , there isn't some insane owner looking for attetnion

    You don't believe in people finding redemption? You've never given someone another shot in life?

    Pretty big risk he’ll find some way to cheat and Mason gets slapped with big sanctions, which as a mid-major is a death knell.

    Doesn't matter what I think the school doesn't have the profile that would fit what you are thinking.

    For the record I’d love to have pitino come to mason.

    I also laugh at loud thinking about how that phone call would go, Pitinos next stop whenever it is is a struggling P5 or an established mid major, either way ain’t us

    A second chance at 67 years old? I’d rather go with an up and coming coach like GW has with Christian.

    No thank you. We can not afford another miss hire. We need a proven winner that can turn our program around quickly.

    Why not? Not that he would...but hell....its better than another gamble on a guy from the lower ranks that gets us no where.

    Huh? When was the last time Mason had a coach named Ms. Hire? Was she hot?
