Sluh's coach, John Ross, was let go after 11 seasons. Has anyone heard anything about a potential replacement?

Sluh needs someone good. They are awful. Willie reed should coach, give him something to do.

SLUH nearly beat Webster.

I agree we have not achieved anywhere close to our potential in recent years.

True, I was at that game too, cool gym. But its the worse WG team in 14 years. there's a reason coach blossom said no way Jose to the sluh job. 1) because of what he had going at wg. 2) because sluh lacks the success in the past decade and 3) I should not say in public...

If by recent years you mean like the last 40 years then you're right.

I've heard the WG coach has more interest in the SLUH job than he lets on. It'll be interesting to see what happens. SLUH could become a powerhouse if they got the right coach.

Blossom won't be the Head Coach at SLUH. Not now, not ever.

I hope they hire Justin Tatum, but doubt they will.

Could they talk Fisher and Redman away from Maplewood/RH?

Frazier's son will be a senior next year so that would appear to be the biggest obstacle to that plan.

Can't believe Ross was the coach at SLUH for 11 years. I had him for math my freshman year at DeSmet, which doesn't seem like it was over 11 years ago, even though I know it was.

Coach Dale: There's a tradition in tournament play to not talk about the next step until you've climbed the one in front of you. I'm sure going to the State finals is beyond your wildest dreams, so let's just keep it right there.

Forget about the crowds, the size of the school, their fancy uniforms, and remember what got you here. Focus on the fundamentals that we've gone over time and time again.

And most important, don't get caught up thinking about winning or loosing this game. If you put your effort and concentration into playing to your potential, to be the best that you can be, I don't care what the scoreboard says at the end of the game, in my book we're gonna be winners!

I wonder why it happened now - JR's teams have been abysmal for a while now. I think he only had one winning season, 09-10.

I'd be shocked if Blossom was interested but would love to get him. He's a great coach.

Laughlin is a basketball guy so I'm hopeful he will bring in someone in who knows how to run a program. If I was a coach I'd love to have those facilities.
