I am a Purdue grad, and enjoyed watching Cuonzo when he played at Purdue. Gene Keady's teams were built on D. I have followed Cuonzo since he graduated from Purdue, and am glad he's been able to do the kind of job he has at his coaching stops. If his players are so focused on the offenseive end, he would be best advised to find players who will play D and sacrifice themselves into the team concept (instead of players seeking individual glory).

If I was much younger than I am now, I would want to play for a coach like Cuonzo or Coach Stallings at Vanderbilt. Those two guys know how to coach, and I respect their coaching ability very much.

What's with giving CEOs at any level a severance package? I don't see companies giving their employees a severance package when they leave. So, why should companies do the same with outgoing CEOs? That's why capitalism is not a perfect system. It rewards outgoing people who sit at the top, regardless of the results they post - negative or positive. Which is also what is wrong with so many Boards of Directors. Some of these boards are so overburdened with other responsibilities that they don't really know what has been going on with the companies these members represent and for whom the CEO reports. You're paid to do a job for a company - not to receive a severance package on the way out from leaving the company. Imagine what would happen if the money that went for severance packages, instead, went for other services that could impact a community. Paying someone a severance package does little to the economy. Investing the money, instead, into the community brings back more to the community.
