Well, it looks like Dan Monson is going to finally clean house now. I mean, the season is already a bust, and we are going through a depression. Might as well as FDR and bring out the first New Deal while you're at it, Coach.

For both these guys, it was an opportunity taken away. I don't know the details, but I reckon that when you start up a fight and badmouth the coach after you get clobbered 100-61 (a mistake on the score earlier) by Northridge, you gotta be gracious in defeat.

I say, though, go one step further: take all the players off scholarship and have them walk-on. Make them earn their scholarship back. Otherwise, they can always transfer if they feel like they don't want to take the initiative.

And another thing: Shame on you, Artis Gant. You could have been a senior leader next season, had you not shown your lack of charisma, your lack of composure. You wasted a good opportunity to lead this team. I put a damnatio memoriae on what you did after the game.

You not only disappointed your team, and Coach Monson, but you disappointed me. For shame.
