David Scott: New 49ers coach has skills to 'make guys better'

From the Big O…

CharlotteObserver.com: New 49ers coach has skills to ‘make guys better’

Funny, he mentions Greg Oden in reference to Ohio State, but for Xavier, instead of NBA All-Star David West, it’s Anthony Myles. Can always count on the Big O!

nice read

Seems like this was because the quote from Groce talks about Oden compared to Myles. I wouldn’t say it is the O trying to conspire against the A10.

“He’s married to the basketball. If he found somebody who was round and who has seams, he’d go right after her.”

Whats up with all of the fucking trolls on the o’s articles about Major? Doesn’t usually bother me, but these people are real dicks - give the guy a chance, or at least, have a good reason to not like him!

Major is going to have all the time in the world to devote to our program. I can’t imagine what it would be like without a wife in kids in terms of time on my hands. Definitely a benefit. Can go anywhere, anytime.

I don’t think all of those assholes are 49er fans, but it does make us look bad.

The frequency of “UNCC” in their comments suggests to me they aren’t actually fans even when they are pretending to be. I also think a few of them are putting together multiple sock puppets to make a point. Or maybe all the trolls think and type the same.

I enjoyed the article, though I wonder if Major is happy about that island basketball academy idea getting so much play in the news rather than his coaching activities.

I am all for it later on. Long run, this Island Basketball Academy could be a huge payoff. He runs the thing, remembers where he got his start…

…pipeline?

Don’t let your wife read that

Actually, pretty typical of the Big O to downplay anything that’s not ACC (well, Chapel Hill and Duke) or BCS-related. Sure, go ahead and mention Myles, but your average sports fan is probably going to know the name David West, probably even more than Oden since the latter has pretty much “disappeared” since being drafted by Portland due to injuries. I’m not blaming this one on Groce.

Coach Major will find out soon enough what kind of coverage he’s going to get from the Observer.
