His overall coaching record?

Are you referring to the comment about us losing in the second round of the tourney? I don’t know of that’s what you are talking about or not, but it it is, it’s not an error. The round we lost in is now considered to be the second round.

The USNA is co-ed. He’ll be coaching the men - probably won’t be helping to form the female leaders of tomorrow.

It said Taran Buie was a sophomore. There.

In an earlier version of the article Andrew Jones was spelt as “Andruw Jones”

Answer:

ESPN says: In eight years at Penn State, DeChellis put together a 222-232 record.

This is his OVERALL coaching record…NOT PSU record.

Taran is a sophomore now.

Dana posted his career record, not his overall record.

In her newest piece she says:

Plenty will argue – and not entirely inaccurately – that DeChellis is merely getting ahead of the posse. He was in the second year of a three-year extension

Wasn’t ED contracted through 2013-14 or am I very confused?

Yeah it was through the 13-14 season.

Dana clearly was too wrapped in her opinion column than this piece. As soon as I read it, I knew there were a crap-ton of errors.

Didn’t anyone realize she said we lost in the 2nd round of the NCAA tournament?

So I was correct?

Eric - that IS the second round now.

Isn’t the round of 64 technically called the second round now?
