Lady Gators BB

Postby Vatgator » Thu Apr 04, 2013 10:36 am

Now we lose to Drexel -drexel is that a school? Another disappointing season.

Great tennis, lacrosse, golf, track teams but for some reason we can never seem to get it together in BB. I wonder if Foley makes any changes.

Amanda Butler is solid gold. Remember, Foley fired a lady Gators head women's bball coach for having an affair with his wife. We've had some of the biggest names in women's basketball fail in that job, Carolyn Peck for one.

She will have next year for sure and if she makes improvement, another. If she's given time, she will build a winner here. Foley is smart...he knows that.

I'm not a big follower but my friend in a boot in Jacksonville is and says they should be pretty decent next year.

Prior to watching Kasey Hill and Chris Walker on ESPN last night, I watched a few minutes of the future of WBB with Ronni Williams being the first Gator recruit to ever play in the girls' McDonald's game (guys had the big network at 9:30, girls had ESPNU at 7). She is #13 overall and the #2 wing player. They have a top 10 recruit signed for 2014 as well.

You can't go wrong bringing in a studette recruit with the same name as the all-time leading scorer for the men's team.

They're on their way up after the debacle Carolyn Peck left. Yes, they lost to Drexel in the NIT, but it was the national semifinals, they were on the road (no MSG for the women's final four) and they had won 4 straight on the road to get that far. Women's NIT is 64 teams, men's 32.

Yep...big deal actually. It was obviously buried by the athletic dept. I mean why would an ultra successful coach leave to take a post at a minor sec school? It's a weird story but it's true. Without revealing how I know this, just consider the timing of the resignation of out only successful womens bb coach and the timing of Foley's divorce. And while I can't give up my source, I believe him to be impeachable.

Actually, I thought this was common knowledge.

I’m kinda doubting this story. It smells a little fishy to me (pun intended). Need more deets.

Then we should bring impeachment proceedings against him immediately.

It was Carol Ross....or is it Ross Carol? Kinda’ hard to tell.

And here’s what Foley had to say at the time...

“To say I was shocked about Carol’s decision is an understate- ment,” Florida Athletics Director Jeremy Foley said. “I met with her this morning to discuss her contract extension so I was blind-sided about the result of our meeting. Carol has done an unbelievable job developing the Lady Gator Basketball team into one of the finest in the country. We are so proud of the recognition and the class that she instilled into this program. On behalf of the University of Florida I want to thank Carol for everything she has done for this program and the way she and her players have represented the Gator athletic family. We will truly miss her.”

I think Spooky may have been hitting the sauce pretty hard, at least when it comes to this theory.

Not a theory. I have a family member who was close to the situation. Very close. Honestly I would have never brought it up if I had know it was such a secret.

But I promise...I'm not one who has any history of making wild speculative statements...it is true.

Ohhhhhh no. You’re not getting out of it that easily. Now you’ve got me interested. You need to spill all the salacious details.
