    At one point, Corey Myers allowed one of the players to temporarily live with his family at their house, an arrangement that a former ASU administrator described as "not a good practice."

    Everyone should quit their job and volunteer to afford a house.... So if clint provided more than 10000 of support for his 40 or so yr old son, wouldnt that be tax evasion for the son even if it doesnt violate ncaa regs for having too many paid coaches

    If someone contacts opposing team in public, cant imagine how they treat their own team
    As Robe says, "Oh, there is no doubt".

    Do you remember when robe was complaining about how all the new players were spoiled because of travel ball. Why was it exactly that was a problem for just UL? How did all the othet schools have a generation of players not from travel ball?

    He has never restricted that statement to only his team. He says "kids today". He has even mentioned how he and other coaches talk about it all the time.

One would figure that due to their current status in life, they would not have any problems coming forward if they felt that Mike subjected them to abuse either verbal or physical. In a news story last night, KATC showed copies of emails and texts that Mike has purportedly sent over the years in regards to what he perceived to be gender equity issues. Did the current administration get so weary of Lotief's complaining that they are using this issue to rid themselves of someone they perceive as a trouble maker? I just don't know. Some are happy that Lotief has been fired and point to the evidence that the university has presented as the reason that he got fired. Others will read the testimonials about Lotief and look at his evidence and say that he got the shaft. I believe that the softball program will survive this in the long run, but that chaos will rule in the short term. I just hope that the players all take a step back and don't make any rash decisions based upon emotion.
    All players with significant playing time. Interesting.

    Plenty other coaches say the same thing.

    Robe's point is valid. Throwdown is an equalizer when your team has less raw talent.

    We are a mid-major and not as talented year in, year out as SEC, Big 12 clubs. The gap is narrowing with players like Lexie, BT, Hogan and Gunner, but the gap is there. Robe is spot on. Tulips will fold, talented or not.

    I have no doubt Mike believes the same. He simply went way too far.

    The one item that should not be considered in all this is "he made her cry"

    Crying is not a reliable gauge of harm induced.

    An MMA fighter might cry after the opponents arms are raised.

    Change nothing and if their arms are raised it turns to tears of joy.

    ps I still have empathy for the person crying, no matter the cause or personal threshold.

    I cry faster than you. You may have been more offended than me. My crying is not a good gauge for rating the offense.

    I graduated in the 70's from USL.Since then I have coached boys and girls high school sports as well as over 25 recreational teams ranging from girls and boys soccer,basketball and boys baseball and golf.I was even president,chief umpire and board member of numerous leagues.My son was a college athlete as was his best friend since elementary school.My son was treated differently at different ages by many fine coaches as was my daughter.In Lotief's 40 minute video a reporter asked if maybe some administrators could not relate to language and physical coaching techniques because they never played or coached in multiple venues.His response was that may be the case.It concerns me that according to the video and other reports coaches were not interviewed as well as the many team members around Lotief in the video to provide better context to negative serious allegations from a relative few.It also concerns me he reportedly would get positive reviews this summer from players and administration and a bonus.Surely some of the alleged issues were known to the administration before then.Having been in many locker rooms and sidelines for boys and girls games I surely hope some of these reported issues with Lotief will not hinder proper sport specific physical coaching methods used all over and unduly restrict occasional age appropriate coaching outbursts.

    Have you looked at any information other than Mike's press conference?

    Respectfully, have you ever forcefully pulled a young ladies' head back by her ponytail whether within the context of coaching or not? Do you think that would be appropriate as a coach?

    What about physically intimidating and poking your finger into a female co-workers chest. Not a player, another employee of the university? Is that appropriate to you?

    I'm not being facetious, I really want to know your opinion.

    I may be sexist, but I have more of an issue with "physical" coaching being used on a female rather than a male. I played JUCO and D1 baseball and never witnessed any assault or battery by any of the coaches. Even the more intense and passionate ones. Vulgar language, sure.

    Some people just don't get it. To keep him on staff would be asking for multiple lawsuits in addition to condoning behavior that should not be part of the culture. You cannot get away with using these types of terms these days to player or ever laying a hand on a coworker. The win at all mentality does not apply, you simply cannot ignore this crude behavior. I am amazed at how many people do not understand this.
