No reason they can't scrimmage...I guess what they currently do is fun for the students/players, but really defeats the purpose.

Those reasons seem kind of petty...can't help but wonder if they were just looking for something to ding him on?

I'm willing to bet there is way more to the story than what he put down on paper.  I will stop my comments there. Whew. I had to delete much of what I wanted to say.

More to the story ... maybe. I think he probably did touch on all the issues the school was having and used to fire him. I just don't think his representation of those issues was complete.

Who knows. I've been talking to several and nothing he said in terms of the "violations" was new ... while one was slightly new.

i.e. more to the story.

Yeah ... I know ... but ... I'm trying to walk a line. Some would argue there is more to the story, others may say there isn't. I think it is more in the eye of the beholder if you catch my drift.

Yep. Catching the drift. You know more than I, and even I refrained from my sharing my interpretation of his horribly written statement.  ;D

That seems like a sound policy that maybe others should consider!

I'll be honest, I'm a little disappointed he decided to wade into the muck. I think he would have departed even if Andy Sachs was on board. He is heading back to a job that he is familiar with having been on staff in the past. That job opened up late in the off season (few weeks ago) and I am not surprised he took it.

I understand defending your former boss. I just don't think it helps him wading further into it. Thanking Coach Sachs was probably good enough.

I wish him luck and I hope the Salisbury team can put the blinders on and focus on the season at hand.

Nice start for UMW last night.   They were missing two key starters to injury (not long term), but some of the freshman played very well.  The Cook twins from Williamsburg look great.   A freshman (Rowson) from Northern VA hit 7 of 9 3s.   Losing Shaw is tough, but this team looks much deeper now that Kahn has had a couple of years of recruits to build on.   Should be a fun season!

Agree with MW_Eagles.  UMW looks improved and significantly deeper this year - especially with shooters.  Last night's shooting display was impressive, and they were without last year top frosh and shooter (Johnson).  With this depth, they may be able to play even quicker and wear down opponents.  Really looking forward to this season.
