    I never went to my professor's office hours for my undergrad and needless to say graduated with a meh gpa. That was also largely paid for by my parents but when I went back to school, on my dime, I visited professors regularly. Heck I even found out where one lived and took my kids trick or treating in his neighborhood so I could just happen to run into him lol. Sure call me a stalker lol, i will go with creative. Office hours are such an unutilized opportunity to get help, get to know your profs and vice versa and really help you understand things that were missed while in class.

    Fire Coach Woodson Thread

    Year 3 for sure, but you think the next coach will do better that Woody and the team did his 1st and 2nd year? If so, who do you think brings instant success?

    For a #1 pick, and just looking at box scores, Boston does not seem to be producing at a very high level. I admit i have not watched many games so fill me in on whether she is likely going to be great.

    Then make your case or argue with them about that on twitter. It always seems silly for people to bring some outlandish take to this board with the defense of I saw this on twitter or FB or... Unless it is a prominent person making that claim, it does not impact the discussions we have here. You can pretty much find stupid takes anywhere and usually should be ignored.

    Does the student bill of rights guaranteed scholarship also guarantee a roster spot? I don’t think it does.

    I hope he has success here. Would be cool to see him do well even if at a low level.

    I don’t get it when folks say he can’t coach. I mean he can obviously. Even a mediocre coach can coach pretty well. Is he a good to great coach, well we haven’t seen that yet but he can coach.

    “Epic failure”. This is why people push back. Kenny Payne at UL, ok sure but this is just such a ridiculous take.

    Sparks could have gotten more time he just was not able to compete

    Most of the others aren’t watching so since it is just us can you let me know why there is a good reason to stretch into June?

    This seems to be a reasonable approach. I felt like Crean used to keep starters in too long for early games and even blowouts. Assumed he was padding stats but wasn’t sure. But early on play good opponents and play the depth players so that later in the year you know who to count on when making a run.

    Skip ahead about 10 mins to the Dan Hurley portion. This is a good listen and I imagine this creative mindset is what we would love to have here next. Loved the idea of learning college offense from college football. ba31566_v3_mb_vsquiz-quiz-30143V5-carbs_kemo-amha-rymc_vvjoca_vvdrpi-visa.mp4 (youtube.com)
