Classic and Epic interview. My bro is good friends with him. I could see him at CP one day in the head chair if he did well at Siena and we were ever lookin again. He talked about him loving recruiting and how he got DJ and Ekene from the west coast and try hard on Arinze and Powe. Great personality and very smart. We could do a lot worse.Probably would needs solid X/O guy beside him if he makes the next leap. Great story teller. My favorite DC bartender.Wish him well in Albany. He loves The Dead and Walton!!!!
He is on 980 a lot, he's an awesome interview
He's a good guy and a lot of fun to hang out with but I doubt he'd ever be a serious candidate at Maryland.
HIs recruiting record at Maryland wasn't the greatest, plus most of the guys mentioned here were Pump guys and that relationship severed when we went Underarmour. I think Jimmy recruited the local catholic school scene well enough at Loyola adn lived off transfers, that's not really the recipe we're looking for.
He's two years younger than Turge and just getting his first decent mid-major HC job.
Love Jimmy P and wish him well, but lolololololol at him ever getting a shot at UMD.
Your probably right. If he took Siena on a big time run(elite 8 Final Four) season one time,he would definitely parlay it into a major job like McCafferty did. Still has lots of West Coast connections due to his close friendship with Herrick and Gary McKnight. Pump Bros. we're definitely allies. He loves MD and DC/B'more area. I hope he does well at Siena. I guess his love of beer,golf,etc. puts him on a lot of Terp fans blacklist.
Nit-picking, but I don't think I'd consider any MAAC program mid-major. Solid low-major program that has been a stepping stone to big conference jobs, though.
Im ready for aa 5th of vodica to end my feels.
Siena is really unlike any other MAAC program though. They play in a 10,000 seat arena and are the biggest show in town (in a decent sized city). And most think that Siena will move up to the Atlantic-10 once the conference reallignment is fully shaken out. I think most in the coaching circle would agree that Siena is mid-major.
The arena seats north of 15k, but no upper deck for Siena games. I think the set capacity is 8,400 or thereabouts. Much better than the gyms most of their peers play in, but having the benefit of a downtown arena isn't the ticket to mid-major status. Whatever...
I still think Albany hosting a regional in that arena in 2003 was so completely random. Probably never see a city / place that small ever get one again. Great draw though with Syracuse playing home games there that year.
Being an awful recruit coordinator in his abbreviated stint in that position, did him in for me. Crazy he talked about Ibekwe/Strawberry/LEon Powe & Trevor Ariza like we got the good ones of the 4. HIs love of golf bothers me too. Great interview though and a solid bartender
The original basketball, message board, superhero.
Jimmy would have a great career as a TV or radio analyst. He's much MUCH better than half of the ex-coach clowns they have on ESPN. I don't think he'll ever be a major star in coaching, though.
Siena isn't long for the MAAC anyway. If they go to the A10 (and I think they will) that's a much better job. You'd be in a conference with Shaka at least.
Will he continue to take our leftovers at Sienna?
I like Patsos but are some people really serious about him ending up at Maryland? There are about 28290384029823 reasons why that won't and shouldn't happen.
