Woods spent the last four seasons as the head coach at Mississippi Valley State.

Welcome home.

    Can’t blame them for taking the coach that blew the biggest late lead in NCAA tourny history can you? If you look at his resume, exactly what has he accomplished as a coach? I know Morehead isn’t the greatest of jobs but I believe they could have done better. Kelly Wells? Wells resume looks much better to me. He is an alum plus he lead an overachieving Pikeville team to an NAIA Championship.

    Im surpised that the other coach left for Souther Miss…is Southern Miss that much a better job that Morehead? Id have figured Morehead was a better job, to be honest.

    3} how did he do that? Don’t believe I’ve heard that one. I remember his shot against puke that put UK up by 1 with 2.7 sec. left in the regional final.

    3. Coaches have failures. That doesnt mean he isnt quaified. What did he do? He took the worst team in the worst conference from the cellar to the tourney and almost beat a team that everybody knew was supremely more talented.

    Well, Souther Mississippi is better than Norther Mississippi.

    Sean Woods was my pick for Morehead. I met Sean a few years ago and bought advertising from him, he is a great guy!

    No question.

    Centrl and Middl Miss are worse.

    Big congrats to Sean, hope we get them on the schedule. I’d rather play them than the whiny jerks in Bloomington.

    Relax: The game will return.

    This is just promo.

    U of K vs. …..

    IU is on hiatus.

    Crean says he loves to promote his student body to crazily hate.
    Part of the home court advantage.

    Hate!

    Could both the teams have a curse on them?

    The most recent…….the most recent of which..

    Not Richey Farmer….

    But……..Sean Woods taking the ……..Morehead (can I say that????) …..job.

    3.) It’s ridiculous to ever say the coach blew the game. C’mon, man. Coaches aren’t out there playing.

    8.) I totally agree with you.



  18. Wells didn't get offer
    10:34 pm May 11, 2012 Permalink

    #5 Morehead told Wells thanks but no thanks and then he withdrew. Brannen and Graves turned down offers from MSU

  19. Takes over when Cal retires? Funny…a lot of people, including me, at one time thought maybe Pel or Ford would be the coach one day. But, who knows, if Sean does well at Morehead, maybe he’ll be a candidate after Cal catches UCLA!

    I, I got so lost in my thoughts; In thinking, in thinking not about biblical verses, and possible curses…from the Bible.

    But, I wanted to, to, talk about the possiblr….the possible curse from: THuuuuuh GAMEuuuuuh.

    Think about it.

    The failures….of Hurley, Ritchey, Pitino, Laettner… Lort

    who we missin’ a prayer for…….YES….Sean Woods!

    As a Morehead St. Alum I hope he can get them back to the top of the OVC. But with the other MSU in the OVC (Murray) primed for a good season, I doubt it will be this season. Need to get another big man similar to Faried that can dominate undersized OVC oppenents. Drew Kelly can score some, but he can’t defend.
