Wally Hall, the intrepid sports editor for the local paper, was pondering the NCAA Tournament on this, the rare Spring day, that we are not dodging tornadoes or flash floods in the Little Rock area. Concerning his choice for the coach of the tournament he wrote:
" Davidson's Houston Francher, who came within a three-pointer of taking the Wildcats to the Final Four."
No he didn't. Houston Francher is the coach at Appalachian State. Bob McKillop is the coach at Davidson.
You would think that if Wally thought enough of McKillop to consider him the best coach in the Tournament you would think that he would at least go to the trouble of getting the man's name right.
But that's pretty typical of the in-depth breadth of knowledge and attention to detail we have come to expect from Wally.
"Like It Is." What a crock.
