They went through the denial stage (Strong ain't leaving Louisville,....), then the anger stage (that SOB is all about money!.....), and presently in the bargaining stage (Strong will regret the day he left but we will find someone better). Soon they'll become depressed (waiting for a new coach to be named and hoping certain coaches don't get the job), and then they'll come into the final acceptance stage when they get (in Louisville's case...BUY) their new coach.
It's been 27 years since we had to go through that. Yes, Frank Beamer almost got fired and almost went to UNC, but he's been with us a long time. Some are complaining now and wish he would retire, but I'm happy for all the years of stability and we don't have to go through coaching changes every 3 or 4 years like a lot of schools. Maybe after Beamer retires we'll join that crowd, but for now I'm thankful for the peace and quiet.
