Let’s all hope this doesn’t give Phil Fulmer any ideas

Posted by Thomas the Terrible on April 23, 2009

Alright look…I have nothing against Michigan State’s Tom Izzo and I’ll admit that this is for a great cause but I can not stop thinking that Broadway and Izzo mixed together will result in burning couches and riots.

Tickets are now on sale for Izzo Goes To Broadway, a “Broadway-style performance featuring Tom and Lupe Izzo and six accomplished Broadway performers.”  It will be held next month and proceeds go to the American Cancer Society. All Izzo wants is to be the Elaine Page of basketball.

Yo Izzo give money and ask others especially those in your profession to do the same. Just write a freaking 6 figure check (you can afford it) and spare us this torture

“Izzo Goes To Broadway was written exclusively as a mini-Broadway show telling the story of Coach Izzo’s journey from high school to Michigan State to making it to the top on Broadway. The performance features music from several Broadway standards, including 42nd Street, Cats, Chicago, The Phantom of the Opera and A Chorus Line as sung by professional Broadway performers. Among the six-member cast is one actor with 13 Broadway credits on his resume. One of the other professionals is a Lansing native who attended Waverly schools. Several of the performers are taking a break from their current Broadway roles to be a part of this special production.”

What, no Jay-Z?

Let’s pray that there isn’t dancing. I can’t wait for Pitino and Sypher in Swindler on the Roof. For the record Coach K is the lead in Durham community theater’s production of Rats.

If this works, can “Bob Knight Goes to the Psycho Ward” be far behind?

Isiah Thomas is employed again no really he is

Posted by Thomas the Terrible on April 15, 2009

In a state known more for hurricanes, mullets and jorts comes one man to turn the college basketball scene upside down and that is Isiah Thomas. 

Now history tells us that Isiah Thomas as a coach is well…dreadful but that was at the pro level. There is no telling what he will or can do at a college level. However I believe that Thomas’ qualifications to coach a college team are nil. 

Let’s run review his qualifications and I’ll you decide: 

  • 30 years ago he played 2 years for Bobby Knight
  • He took a conference champion to a .500 record and three straight first-round playoff defeats. 
  • He bankrupted the entire ABA league.
  • He ruined the New York Knicks who at the time was a historically proud NBA franchise. 

Those things alone should bring fear to any athlete director but then there are these things that took place when he was in charge of the Knicks to consider: 

  • An $11 million sexual harassment suit
  • Accusations of racism
  • Stephan Marbury
  • OD’ing on sleeping pills to only blame the daughter
  • He’s an asshole 

It would be hard for Florida International not to get better considering their record this past season and the antics of Thomas’ past might even land them some games on ESPN but did they sell their soul in order to obtain Thomas? We see what a disaster he was at the Knicks so you should wonder if he is even capable at reading an NCAA rulebook. However you can look at it like this: If Isiah can find another job; the economy must finally be on the mend. 

Rumor has it that the students have already petitioned to change the school’s abbreviation:

Fuck.

Isiah?

Uuuuuuugggggggh. 

In a related story, Flip Saunders has agreed to coach the Wizards. 

This is the man that FIU should have hired!

Congratulations North Carolina you managed to crush the dreams of almost every resident of Michigan. Ok being serious great job and what a good way to end the bulldozing that was your tournament run.

Here are some other images from the tournament that I’ve been too lazy I haven’t had the chance to post.

Roy Williams doesn't like it when the cheerleaders cry

From the NIT. You know the tourney that cost Billy Clyde his job

Clearly the best fan sign of the tourney

Bobby saw that clip of himself saying those ice dancers were great athletes, and now he's just red in the face.

The General Bobby Knight Says Goodbye

Posted by Thomas the Terrible on February 4, 2008

One of the greatest basketball coaches ever to live has said it’s time to retire. Bobby Knight is one of the most loved and hated coaches ever to grace gym. His polarizing persona as been captured in some of best sound bites ever.

Here’s the list of what he has done.

  • 1,273 Career Games
  • 29 20-Win Seasons
  • 4 30-Win Seasons
  • 1 Perfect Season
  • 28 NCAA Tournaments
  • 3 National Championships
  • 1 NIT Championship
  • 1 Olympic Gold Medal
  • 70-34 Postseason Record
  • 15 NBA First-Round Draft Selections
  • 36 Players In The NBA
  • The winningest men’s coach in NCAA Division I history

“There’s a transition that’s going to take place here from me to Pat and I’ve dwelt on this all year long — about what would be the best way to do this, and how it would be best for him and for the team and for what we can do in the long run to make this the best thing for Texas Tech,” Knight said, according to the Lubbock Avalanche-Journal. “I didn’t know, I’ve never really known when I was going to step down from this job. As I thought about it, my first thought was at the end of this season.”

“My thinking was that for Pat and for this team — most of which is returning next year — the best thing for the long run for this team would be for Pat and his staff to coach these remaining 10 games,” Knight said, according to the paper. “And [to] get an understanding, get a real feel for each other, be able to think over the course of the spring and summer going into next season about how people had played, how things had been done offensively or defensively, what could be done or couldn’t be done, what to stay away from, what to work on and develop that from a game standpoint as the coach in charge of everything rather than as an assistant coach.

“It was always a problem for me as to just what would be the most effective way in this transition, to make this transition. And with all the thought that I put into it, that’s exactly how I felt that it should be.”

Whether you loved him or hated him you have to respect him. I had the pleasure of meeting him once. I found him pleasant then again I wasn’t playing for him or dressed as a referee either.

You’ll be missed General.
