Hmmm…is the answer to my question “you guys agree”…uh…no?
So I’ll respond to a couple of you.
First, I guess the “cut hime some slack” comment meant you thought I was mad at Ed. No, not mad at Ed. Just mad.
byske…Ed cant contact any prospects right now. It’s a dead period until after the Final Four.
I realize that Ed had a busy and grueling year, but we now have a little ju-ju from our appearance in the dance, now is the time for Ed to get some desparately needed pub, especially in Philly. Face time on the TV will go quite a ways to help build relationships with these Phily kids, many of whom probably still couldn’t tell you who the basketball coach of Penn State is.
tjb…Is getting on outlets like Comcast Sportnet, WIP, ESPN, etc, the same degree of diffculty of landing a McDonald’s All American? Wouldn’t Brian Seirgrst be calling these outllets and trying to get him on these shows? If I were working in that office I like to think I’d be on the phone with every media outlet in Philly that covers the NCAA trounament to get Ed on. Hopefully Brian is doning that. It’s not out of bounds to reach out tol these folks, if they’re not calling you, is it?
We have a color commentator who appears on Comcast Sportsnet regularly, and a PSU beat writer (and fellow poster), who also makes appreacnces on Comcast Sportsnet.
Folks, correct me if I’m wrong, but I think Ed was on Comcast Sportsnet only once, in his first season when he had the Tip Off Tour. And that appearance got quite a reaction from Phil Martelli. I don’t think Ed has ever appeared on Comcast Sportsnet since. He also dropped the Tip Off Tour after a couple of years and I’d love to see him bring that back.
Couldn’t Jerardi or Jonsey help the process of getting Ed on Comcast Sportsnet somewhat?
Heck, ED could actually just call in to a live WIP show. Dick Vigtale did that once. ED could aske to talk HCAA hoops with Ike Resses. Ike played his football at Mischgan State and is a HUGE college hoops (yes, Big Ten hoops) fan. If Ress blows Ed off, I’ll call in and get on his case. And maybe Jonsey can write about it.
Jonsey, weigh in on this, would,ya? Maybe I don’t really know what I’m talking about here.
CBS having freaking Tom Crean. That sitll knaws at me. maybe I’d be a little less mad at that one if CBS had Ed ont their NCAA shows after one if his 315 or 2-14 Beg Ten seasons.
