[quote="Locksmith, post:10, topic:2452"]Good for Chambers. Ed and company had to drive 460 miles round trip to recruit Lewis and Chambers takes a private jet to visit him. I will never understand why TC failed to provide this essential recruiting tool to Ed.[/quote]
Which begs the question, why wasn’t ED allowed to do so, and why is Chambers suddenly allowed to?
Very good question. I feel really bad for ED that’s what he had to put up with. Crying shame. At least he paved the road for the new coach to take advantage and the University is finally showing some support. Hope it continues.
Pick your theory (here are three I thought of):
A) He now has a coach he’s really excited about
[ul][li]AD thought it wasn’t necessary to spend excess money on the hoops program. He maybe sees the error in his ways.[/li]
[li]He figures if he’s going to start shelling out more money, he might as well get a coach he really likes.[/li][/ul]
B) He’s had the ‘wake up call’ after Ed bolts
[ul][li]AD is like “oh my gosh I never expected Ed to actually leave”[/li]
[li]He then figures he better make some changes in the way the operation runs.[/li][/ul]
C) His marching orders re hoops have changed
[ul][li]AD’s marching orders before were to hire cheap, run the program cheap, keep it in the family and keep it clean. Hence Ed and the long drives[/li]
[li]AD recently gets new marching orders, either because of a change in attitude from above or an improvement in finances. He gets a shinny new coach and decides to start paying first class.[/li][/ul]
