    One thing that would be pretty cool, and is something they did at Maryland with Gary, is to have a post game show with Coach Boyle. A few min after the game is over and the announcers do their recap, Tad would come out and talk to the radio (simular to the post game conference), but have it also played throughout the stadium for everyone to hear. That way you can stay in the stadium for a few more min while the traffice clears off and listen to coach's thoughts, or go run into your car and listen to him on the radio.

    It was something that I thought was pretty cool that they did, and really allowed you to see what the coaching staff and players were thinking during the game.

    This is fantastic news if only because they are getting enough increased interesting in the Basketball program to warrant the money being spent on this.
