Understood...

Entirely understandable. The issue is the relationship difference. Men's basketball is a life-and-death matter for our U and the Faithful...it's our identity..we're spending $70+ million to renovate our building! For us to lose a top coach to an in-state rival like tOSU, X, UC would be all but unbearable.

Nothing could be more different at URI or even UConn. Neither school has a relationship or rivalry with any school even remotely approaching that among the schools mentioned above....or with each other.

It's completely different. I have no idea how this will play out for URI, UConn or the Hurley's. But whatever happens it will bear no resemblance whatsoever to an "Archie-goes-to-Columbus" scenario.

Attitudes toward college athletics in the Northeast is unlike that elsewhere in the Country. Quite laid back in comparison, generally. During Calhoun's ~ 30 tenure UConn BB was blazing hot. But, even then, that was because UConn was winning and always near the top of the heap nationally. CT fans will support a winner; but only a winner. The Faithful supports UD basketball no matter what.

Go Flyers!
