The only way Saul doesn't make it through the year is if the team clearly quits on him.
Schaus should already have his list of coaches to interview.

Given the fact coach Phillips not coming back seems to be a fait accompli,I would hope O.U. has already started a search.

In the past we've been told by Schaus he always has a list of candidates for sudden departures, so I assume this to be no different. And, if you follow college basketball beyond the Bobcats enough, other AD's say they do the same. Assuming you believe them, I'd guess he's had a list in mind since the summer.

Folks say this all the time and I do not understand it. Many years up at Anderson we got our butts handed to us. Stroh has been a little better

Some of the best college basketball I ever saw in person was in Anderson Arena. Still remember when Nate Thurmond and Howard Komives were on the same team. Boy was that a loaded team. In the 1962-63 season, the year Loyola won the national championship, BG was one of only two teams to beat them during the regular season. I remember that game well, because I bet my barber on the results, and I won a free haircut. True story.

To paraphrase a former student, famous in these parts, losing to Bowling Green is "Unacceptable!" Unfortunately, we've had lots of experience with unacceptability in the flat, windswept lands of northwestern O-hi-o! [This is the part of the state where they actually articulate every syllable in our state name.]

Well, in my part of NW Ohio, you can hear the locals pronounce it A-hi-ya.

My younger sister is a linguist. She says that only in northwestern Ohio, near Toledo, do people not slur the state name to one degree or another. They enunciate each syllable clearly. I assumed that BG would be in that Toledo orbit, but maybe that's not true. It's kind of funny when she pronounces "Ohio" the way it's pronounced in different parts of the state. The most funny, IMHO, is when she pronounces it with a Cleveland accent! Sorry, but I can't do that myself.

Having grown up on the Michigan/Ohio border, you actually start to get a more subtle version of the pinched Great Lakes accent in that Northwest Ohio region. I never developed it, but almost everybody around me had it.

As I moved southward over the years to the central part and then the Southwest part, the twang became more and more prevalent.

Then I married someone from Northwest Indiana and now get the full-blown Chicago accent on a daily basis.


I'm fascinated by dialects.

Yep, and around Lima (where I grew up), a lot of people don't even bother with the "A"...they just go straight for "Hi-ya" especially when referring to "Hi-ya State".
