This is what I meant, thanks. I've seen all of these guys play (except Brey) in person, and have watched with interest as they have gone into coaching. Nothing would make me happier than to see one of them succeed wildly at Duke. And it can happen. But we do not have anybody in the pipeline with the experience and success that Roy had before coming to UNC. And HE didn't even want to be the first coach after Dean. Or the second. My main point is this: There are plenty of people who aren't on board with a women's coach who has been very successful at keeping Duke competitive on a national level. She faced opposition from the fans. She faced opposition from some of the players. She has made mistakes, but overall, Joanne McCallie has done a great job, considering the obstacles. People can say, "Aw, it's Duke, she OUGHTA win.", but that is far from the truth. It has taken a lot of hard work. And if you think Duke will just plug in a new men's coach and there'll be no problems? Well, I hope you're right. But it might be harder to replace the best college basketball coach ever born than you might think. Then again, I wouldn't bet against Coach K having our backs on the new hire, too. But every stumble will be accompanied by enough howls of protest that the job won't be easy. Get on board with Ms. McCallie. Call it the "practice" for the next men's coach.
