Can they get a new arena and a coach as a package deal?

Mysanantonio.com: Gillispie might be one to watch in UTSA coaching search


If I am a young black kid, and my mother tells me someone named Billy Clyde Gillispie is looking for me, I am not taking that call.  Well, maybe it's different in Texas.

Roadrunners hire Oklahoma assistant Steve Henson to lead program.

Goutsa.com: UTSA names Steve Henson as head men's basketball coach on Friday

Mysanantonio.com: Steve Henson hired as seventh men's basketball coach at UTSA


And unfortunate news about the coach he replaced.

Newsok.com: Former Cowboy Brooks Thompson fighting for his life

Tulsaworld.com: Former Oklahoma State basketball player Brooks Thompson hospitalized, in critical condition

Sad. Could be natural causes, but if I were his doctor I'd check him for poisoning. (Sorry. I watch a lot of true crime shows and this scenario has been played out in a number of other murders.)

Holy crap!  I was thinking the same thing.  They should check him for anti-freeze poisoning.  Just watched one of those shows where this lady had poisoned her daughter (f'ed up, I know), and she had multiple organs just start failing.
The Things I Would Always Like To See From 49ers Mens Basketball:

1. Good young men with good character.

2. Actually be taught good fundamental defense.

Really nice remembrance posted to Facebook by Doug Gottlieb.

Brooks Thompson died tonight, he was the best point guard in Oklahoma State history.
