Thanks, PR:

Certainly we use the twitter "followers" lists to ID recruits, should we do so with regards to assistant coach candidates? IDK. I'm not big on posting links to guys' twitter accounts. But, I'll go with the flow.

Coach Stadler, OL at VSU with ties to Coach Rocco, recently "following" LC accounts as well as that of Coach JG.

Everyone has to take a PEE test? Shocked


This is good news. One of the first things this staff needs to do is drug testing and address this issue. It's worse than you think. Several of the kids have been asking Frank for this for over 2 years. Tough to play well or have constructive practices when you partake.

LC Dad - Do you also remember that the father was fired from Columbia after that season because the players went to the administration and complained that Garrett Sr was too hard on them and forcing them to chose between football and studying?


I did recall that he was fired, but only from what I read in the paper, which, upon revisiting, suggests that he still had the support of the players, which I did not recall nor would have expected.

"But in an emotional, hastily arranged meeting, 63 freshman and varsity players, who gathered in an attempt to overturn the decision, felt their coach had been pushed. The players voted, 54-9, to ask that the coach be reinstated. By the end of the meeting, however, older players reconsidered protesting the decision. While no formal complaint was presented last night, several players were angered that they had not been involved the process that led to the coach's departure."

Kind of an odd take by Wilson...If he's successful we might lose him. Huh? I recall hearing the same thing said when O'Hanlon was hired, it was widely assumed by the know-it-alls that he was just passing through on the way to scale higher mountains.

And yet some on this board worry that he won't be motivated enough because he's not 33...or something...

We do overanalyze crap sometimes don't we?

Happy Holidays!

Time will tell but I think they made a great hire.

I was a Cramsey or Perry advocate and after speaking to 2 people on the committee and another who played for Garrett last year I think this is a great hire.  He's got the best pedigree of any PL coach by miles.  I was leery of his short tenures but if he comes in and turns things around in 2 or 3 years and bolts then what?  THEN it is a way better job than it was this go round when Perry and Cramsey wanted the gig.  No lose situation unless he gags which I don't see happening.  Bruce takes a lot of shots (rightfully) but I think he should be lauded for this scenario.

During the press conference, Garrett said that he would spend Christmas "in Richmond with his family" and then come right back to Easton to get to work. Elsewhere I read that Garrett and his family actually reside in Tampa and that Garrett lived in Richmond only during the season.

Perhaps this has been overlooked, and perhaps the answer simply was assumed, but does Coach Garrett intend to live in Easton, or will he maintain only a transient presence?  Will his family remain in Tampa?

Bogey- I don't know but my bet is the whole family comes to Easton to live in a house provided by the college.

Here's the interview at halftime of the Colgate BB game on 12/30.  Not a whole lot there; Garrett repeats almost verbatim the talking points he used during the press conference.  Emphasis on a flexible scheme tailored to meet the skill set of the players was good to hear.

Garrett is pretty geeky guy but Lafayette is a pretty geeky place. I think he's what recruits (and their parents) expect from Lafayette College.

I was especially impressed with matching the scheme with the current players skill set. That's what a successful coach does. A lesson for all our coaches. There is no magic offense or defense, you match watch you have with the other guy's weaknesses!!! I've been waiting for a long to time to hear that from every coach at Lafayette!!
