Obviously it isn't a totally dead period if the NCAA allows you to schedule these trips once every four years. They said on the telecast last night that last year Thad Matta brought OSU up for the same thing. I guess some coaches aren't interested in going that extra mile? Cal takes a week-long vacation every year in July. I guess you can do a trip like this, find time for your summer vacation, and still get the #1 class... of course, doesn't leave as much time for fine dining, which some coaches apparently cannot live without...
Are you really trying to make an excuse for why Tubby couldn't schedule a trip like this in 10 years?
