I still can't find it anywhere. Wvit, there must be a source. If you can't say, say you cannot reveal your source until the announcement. You make it sound like you climbed Albany Hill and received word from on high. Your fiirst name wouldn't be Moses would it?

Not very good - 04-20-2012, 03:53 PM

I was making a bearbacker donation today at Cal and asked. They said he was gone to USC. Although it wasn't in the bearbacker office I heard it. But it was at Haas.

So wvit must stand for "Word - belieVe IT". Not that I have any reason for doubt.

I'd prefer to be at the point our assistants are consistently moving out to head coaching jobs,
but it is what it is and it's time to move on. Look at it as an opportunity to get a bigger bigs coach.

Well good, Wvit. That is plenty of verification. They may be waiting for $C to announce or to have a new assistant in play and just announce the new hire. Let's see who LG and Co. come up with. I mentioned some names somewhere above in this thread. But I have since gotten an idea into my head about a particular assistant not mentioned above. I'm gonna keep my idea to myself threadwise. I don't want to jinx her.

I can corroborate wvitbear on this, too. It is official, though not publicly announced yet. I didn't ask what they're waiting for, or why, or anything else.

Maybe there will be some sort of announcement tonight at the banquet. If anyone is attending please post afterwards as I can't make it.

Maybe Coach G is interviewing coaches too?

Well, the roster has been updated to show the departures of Sherbert and Park. Still reads 2011-12 on top, but unless they come back it should read 2012-13. I see another nit. Excuse me while I pick it.

We gotta add another assistant and we should add another player who can give some productive minutes at the 2/3. Stay tuned. Notre Dame is raking in 5 star recruits NOW. Hopefully we will see some soon.

Destinie Gibbs, a 4 star wing released from Ole Miss, is looking at $C, so I hope the coaches have spoken with the young woman about the possibility of coming to Cal. She could play this year.

I also see the name Peyton Langston coming up in conversations for 2014. 6'1" combo guard from Cal Sparks and Rolling Hills' Peninsula High. Bears watching. Hopefully.

Cal needs a shooter scorer at the Wing. Someone who can be a consistent 3-point scoring threat, as well as create off the dribble and finish at the rim. Cal's earlier decision to pass on the 2013 class may may definitely hurt their chances to land such an athlete to fill their greatest need. Of course, Foo could dial-it-up and, perhaps, become that player.

Even if Foo becomes all of that, who backs her up? We need some depth there. Gibbs looks good, but it's hard to get players to come from coast to coast. It was the 2012 class we passed on, not 2013. We are recruiting 2013 now. We really need a stellar 2/3 now to come in this fall.

And let's not forget the assistant. It would be nice to have someone who knew SoCal and the Oregon kids. I wonder if anyone's available.

I don't think we exactly passed - 04-26-2012, 07:29 PM

Northern Cal had one of its weakest classes this year. Combine that with Lindsey just taking over an underachieving program and you know what happens. Plus, anyone who was recruited was probably going to sit on the bench for a year. The 2013 and 2014 classes up here are both much better.

You don't just start forming relationships with players during their senior year. Lindsey is already establishing relationships for years down the line. This year only Hannah Huffman was worth recruiting and she verballed to Notre Dame a year and a half ago.
