Faithful correspondent Wayne Brown of Tuskegee, Ala., passed along this nugget, and I must admit it made me laugh. The third paragraph of a Rivals post by Jeff Eisenberg contains this quote:
“There’s only one thing left for me to do in college basketball, and that’s try to win a national championship.”
The speaker? Paul Hewitt, formerly of Georgia Tech, now of George Mason.
I could be snide and say something like, “Well, you could also try to beat Georgia in Athens,” but I’ll let you read the article for yourselves. But I warn you in advance: There’s another quote that will give you pause.
Hewitt: “We had a pretty good run there at Georgia Tech in terms of player development.”
OK, enough from me. Read the article. You’ll enjoy it.
