Just read this on Steve Patterson:

This reporter is obviously butt hurt about stuff, but this article is pretty scathing click bait

I smelled his stink from day one. But if his programs win, don't care.

Canzano wrote the same column (two of the paragraphs are almost identical) when Texas hired Patterson. Not saying Patterson isn't teh suck in the parlance of our internet times, but there is definitely a personal beef between Canzano and Patterson.

Now he's gotta get this team in shape to run his system and not the four corners isolation bullshit Barnes loved.

Can't wait to see what swoopes can do at point guard once he takes over for felix, who suffers a season-ending concussion in game one when one of his errant passes ricochets off a defender's back and beans him between the eyes.

If anyone is throwing the ball at the defense, my money is on Swoopes.

Patterson truly couldn't be any more unlikable. (from press conference)

On the other hand, Shaka Smart literally couldn't be more impressive.

Yeah, we did a feature on him for GameDay hoops and it's a little ironic now I guess because it talks about his commitment to his players and how he tries to be a father figure and that's why he kept staying at VCU, but I was very impressed. His dad left when he was a kid and he's made it a mission to not just be a coach, but to be a mentor and true father figure for his players. Say what you will about coaching shortcomings Charlie Strong has and time will tell if Havoc can work in a big boy basketball league, but we have truly impressive MEN leading our two biggest programs.

We don't know what we don't know. But I'll be damned if he didn't control that press conference like he was a mutation of the very best traits of Mack Brown and Charlie Strong.

Winning the press conference isn't something that wins championships. But perhaps the way someone wins them can sometimes allude to good things ahead.

Well I didn't think it was an issue, either, until about a month ago there was a report he was declaring...which would have been a boon for the Turkey Basketball Association but not so much for him.

A bit surprised that Holmes wasn't drafted.

Yeah, very disappointed for him. Say what you will about his on court performance, which certainly lacked after the concussion, but he's a guy who worked hard for four years to keep improving and gave a lot to the program and that's all we can really ask for. Hope he can be a guy who works through Europe or the D-League to get a shot in the league some day.
