The men's basketball team took out Texas Southern 70-68 at the U.S. Centuray Bank and Cabana Coliseum Saturday night to go to 4-2. Stetson's in Monday at 6 p.m. Hearing this third hand, but if an athletic department employee brings seven guests, they get complimentary tickets and a day off. No word on whether they'll get to spend a game in a cabana.
Meanwhile, up on the Tex-Mex border, the football team was getting rolled 33-10 by UTEP, which had lost its previous three games 143-21. Perhaps the less said about this, the better.
So, if Ron Turner was to escape to the NFL, where would he go? He's a West Coast offense guy, but one who likes to work behind the kind of power running game no longer in vogue around the NFL. If you don't have a dynamic offense -- and none of Turner's NFL offenses could be called that -- you better have a defense that truly sits on teams (Seattle, Carolina). Also, the quarterbacks he coached in his last two NFL stops (Indianapolis in 2011 and Tampa Bay in 2012) didn't evolve so well.
Would Norv, offensive coordinator in Cleveland, help a brotha out?
