Coaching rumors and fan message boards

When I first started reading the internet regularly, I spent most of my time reading posts on ACC message boards. I never posted myself because I never wanted to take the time it seemed to require to establish yourself on the pecking order to get replies to anything you wrote. Sometimes I learned some real news, but I mostly got a kick reading many fans' knee-jerk reactions to the ebb and flow of their teams' fortunes.

I just came across a rumor making its way around Maryland boards that Gary Williams was planning to interview with the Charlotte Bobcats about a heading coaching vacancy that at this point is not a head coaching vacancy. These two posts attracted a great deal of attention with Maryland fans coming from several angles. Some were fearful of Williams's departure, while others were already speculating if Tubby Smith or Jay Wright would make the move to College Park. As it turns out, the Charlotte Observers' NBA writer, Rick Bonnell, quashed the rumor on his blog earlier this week along with another that had Smith making his way to Charlotte. That one apparently lit up the threads on UK boards.

For anyone unfamiliar with the boards, don't rely on them for accurate news. They make good psychological studies after the team has lost. Some guys are ready to jump off bridges while others seem to possess the knowledge to outcoach the coach. Sometimes you get very good threads like this one that make following sports a satifying past time.

I finally figured out State's coaching dilemma- Roman Gabriel. He played basketball, and has always wanted to coach thePack.

State will end up with a good coach. I heard Sidney Lowe is interested. Does this interest you, Sam?
