    I just don't know enough about him, other than what is in the article. I hope this is a hire to gain access to a big post player or maybe he is an unbelievable recruiter period. I don't have much spin yet, but will be working on it.

    I'll say this, he was hired for one thing. Recruit (good) international players.

    Wyoming has been good the last 4 years, making the WNIT the past 3, and losing in the Final Four this year. Their roster is loaded with international girls, 10 to be exact. The forwards he brings in are usually 6'2, so that's a little bit of good news.

    I think we may be going the route of ODU in the past, when they specialized in international players. I have been wanting us to do that.

    Why? I don' recall a single foreign player on any of the three national title winning teams. I may be wrong, and if so, I am certain my poor memory will be exposed.

    I'll give credit to Storer for trying to stop the insanity by doing something different with recruiting. We haven't been having enough recruiting success with what we've been doing.

    Their program had started to drop and they were having a tough time recruiting. If I remember correctly in the 90's, their overseas recruiting got them back in the top 20 and even top 10 for a bit. We have to try something.

    Personally, I would rather lose with American kids than win with a roster that looks like a UN general assembly meeting. So often the only avenue out of poverty for many American kids is an educational opportunity afforded by their athletic ability. I want that opportunity to go to an American every time instead of a foreigner. I suppose I am just old fashioned.

    What is odd? That I am old fashioned, or that I think scholarships paid for by Americans should be awarded to American kids.

    Donít look at our Tennis, Volleyball or Soccer roster then. I think G5 programs have to look overseas to find the diamond in the rough. The best HS athletes in the olympic sports are going to the power schools, mainly because there arenít many to go around. Sometimes we get a big time player, like Victor Lange in golf.
