National topics / WashU ?
« on: June 09, 2015, 12:59:05 pm »
Anybody have any idea why Duncan was let go at WashU? His numbers are on-par with the best in the nation. 34 wins in 2015 does not raise a red flag for me in terms of letting a head coach go... if anyone has more insight, it would help clear it up a bit.

Alright... lay it out there... which teams do you feel should have been in (and take who out?)the field and why? I always like the open line of communication on this topic.
