Former Temple coach John Chaney. When WVU was in the A10 in the 80s and early 90s Temple was the class of the league. They had some great battles.   As a kid I hated Chaney and hated his teams.  As I got older I respected what he did there and the kind of mentor he was trying to be to his players.

Probably the best coach to never make the FF. Took Temple to five E8 appearances but could never get over the hump.

He got a lot of crap for his "send in the goons" moment, but I loved it. 

You don't see a lot of tough, physical basketball anymore.

I want to say when Temple went from Chaney to Dunphy they maintained employing the active head coach with the most D1 wins without a Final 4.

Marty Schottenheimer, who won 200 regular-season games with four NFL teams thanks to his "Martyball" brand of smashmouth football but regularly fell short in the playoffs, has died. He was 77.

Schottenheimer died Monday night in Charlotte, North Carolina, his family said through Bob Moore, a former Kansas City Chiefs publicist. He was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease in 2014. He was moved to a hospice on Jan. 30.

Schottenheimer was the eighth-winningest coach in NFL history. He went 200-126-1 in 21 seasons with the Browns, Chiefs, Washington and Chargers.

His success was rooted in "Martyball," a conservative approach that featured a strong running game and tough defense. He hated the Raiders and loved the mantra "One play at a time," which he'd holler at his players in the pre-kickoff huddle.

Winning in the regular season was never a problem. Schottenheimer's teams won 10 or more games 11 times, including a 14-2 record with the Chargers in 2006 that earned them the AFC's No. 1 seed in the playoffs.

It's what happened in January that haunted Schottenheimer, who was just 5-13 in the postseason.


His playoff demons followed him to the end of his career.

In his final game, on Jan. 14, 2007, Schottenheimer's Chargers, featuring NFL MVP LaDainian Tomlinson and a supporting cast of Pro Bowlers, imploded with mind-numbing mistakes and lost a home divisional playoff game to Tom Brady and the New England Patriots 24-21.

To watch the Hearns v Hagler fight today is simply hard to imagine a more exciting fight.

Hall of Fame forward Elgin Baylor, who followed his illustrious playing career with a decades-long tenure as LA Clippers general manager, has died at the age of 86.

Baylor died of natural causes Monday and was surrounded by his wife, Elaine, and his daughter, Krystal, the Los Angeles Lakers said in a statement.


Baylor's college career included leading Seattle to its only Final Four appearance in 1958, when the team lost to Kentucky in the title game and Baylor was named Most Outstanding Player. After the season, the Lakers picked Baylor first in the NBA draft.

It was actually the second time the Lakers had chosen Baylor in a draft. They picked him in the 14th round in 1956, but Baylor chose to continue playing in college at the time.

On his first day as the man in charge of University of Miami football — a moribund program that had churned through five coaches in nine years and was seriously considering dropping to a lower level of competition — Howard Schnellenberger stood before his players and predicted the Hurricanes would win a national championship. Not necessarily that season but eventually.

Nobody could have imagined he would do it within five years. Schnellenberger, the architect of the Hurricanes football dynasty and the founding father of the Florida Atlantic University football program, died on Saturday at 87, leaving behind a legacy that forever changed two South Florida universities.

The cause of death was not disclosed, but Schnellenberger had been in declining health. He suffered a subdural hematoma from a fall last summer, requiring hospitalization.
