    My guess is we play a 3 or 4 guard lineup most of the time. If they are looking to make a break from the past, I could see Kelly really pushing the ball.

    However, I no longer think she'll be coach at opening tip-off. Which means we're in for a dumpster fire of a season, but one that probably has to happen.

    I don't know enough about the respective coaching choices, but SS definitely needs to hire a woman HC

    I think with all the latest developments, along with hiring a male soccer coach... a female will definitely get the job. Sadly that takes Smesko out who would do great.

    I don't know whether he will be in position to make the hire, but I think if he does, he should hire a woman. But I always think that about women's sports.

    However, I feel pretty strongly that if he is still in position to make the decision, he probably stays with Kelly. If he goes outside, the program it will probably a young-ish white one with short brown hair. :) Dude has a type:

    His first hire:

    He has been dead silent on Twitter for about 10 days now... beginning to think he won't be the one making a decision.

    Surely... the girls deserve to have as regular a season as possible.

    Nikki McCray stepping down from MSU effective immediately. Vaguely alludes health concerns. McCray-Penson had a bout with cancer is 2013, but this has not been confirmed to be in any way related. Personally, there has been a lot of unusual movement in the MSU program since McCray took over which makes me wonder if any of that is related to this?

    Long time commit signs today with hint that more to follow. So far Finley holding the program together it seems.

    Curious about the hint???

    Not seen anything yet on Buhner, and still hoping we can pull Littlepage-Buggs. That is more than enough for this freshmen class.

    Direct quote this morning for the official UF WBK site: "Who's excited to meet our new Gators?! It's going to be a great day!"
    The plural Gators reference read to me as more than one signing. If not that certainly is a clunky way to state they are only signing one this cycle.
