College hoops Who's Who on River Walk

There really is nothing like San Antonio's River Walk. Thursday night, the serpentine waterway that winds its way through downtown already has the feel of a festival, which it actually is, with the Final Four in town.

A parallel event is the National Association of Basketball Coaches' annual convention, which is always held in the same city as the Final Four.

So the River Walk -- which is lined with restaurants and cafes and bridges and trees and low-slung walls -- is a who's who of the college profession on this night: Charlotte's Bobby Lutz (who says he's happy with his new contract extension), the entire N.C. State State staff (minus head coach Sidney Lowe), Saint Joseph's Phil Martelli, as well as guys who used to be coaches, like Mike Montgomery and Billy Tubbs, among others (including Woody Durham, voice of the Tar Heels).

Bobby Lutz is walking free? This man should be locked up for stealing that new contract.

By giving Bobby Lutz a new contract UNCC has resigned it's basketball program to mediocrity for the immediate future. Yea "I'm in it for the long hall" Lutz. Who else would have him? Right South Alabama
