College basketball season doesn’t tip off for another 5 months, but the pot-stirrers are not wasting any time to come out of the wood work.
For example, SI.com columnist George Dohrmann recently wrote an article in which he singles out four different BCS conference schools as “no-win situations” for any basketball coach. Guess who’s featured in it?
PENN STATE: The Nittany Lions have been to the NCAA tournament once (2001) in the past decade, and 12-year-old Bryce Jordan Center is cold and characterless. “Most people will say Northwestern is the worst job in the Big Ten, but no one [there] thinks they should be consistent winners, so the pressure’s not that bad,” says one coach. “Penn State, because of its football success, believes it should [also] be good at basketball.”
I just have one thing to say to you, Mr. Dohrmann:
HOW’S THAT FOR COLD AND CHARACTERLESS?!!!
