Coach Turgeon could be leaving for Maryland

According to reports on Texags.com Texas A&M Men’s Basketball Coach, Mark Turgeon is on the verge of accepting the Head Coach position at the University of Maryland. Apparently they are offering him a $2.8 million a year contract, and if that’s the case, Coach T, go make your money.  He has done a great job here for the Aggies, and I am glad that he’s been our coach.

Now with him leaving so late in the year, that does leave the A&M program with some questions.  First, with all the other coaching candidates already signed to jobs, its going to be hard for the Aggies to find a “Quality” replacement. Second, we have to look at Turgeon’s recruiting commitments who now may change their minds about coming to Texas A&M.  Will Branch and Green still come play in College Station?  We will find out in the next few days.

After seeing this coach interact with his team over the past few years, I have a feeling he won’t make an officialy announcement until he’s spoken with his current team.  No matter how it plays out, I wish coach Turgeon the best of luck, in all his endeavors.  Maryland isn’t Kentucky, Kansas, Duke, or North Carolina, but it’s still a well respected program with a great fanbase.

Now, as for our next head coach, I know a guy who likes to fish, is a calm mild mannered coach, and knows how to win CHAMPIONSHIPS!!!  He’s got 11 NBA Championship rings and he just left his last head coaching position…

and thanks to our photoshop gurus he looks good in Maroon!!!  Come on Bill Byrne give the Zen Master a call, he can fish at Gibbons Creek, we’ll get him a hookup.

This Week at Theaters: THOR

Last week I saw Fast Five and I was surprised.  Fast Five was action packed, Vin Diesel and the entire cast did a great job, the story was more than expected and the Rock was over the top hilarious and kicked ass in some areas, I almost forgot about the “Tooth Fairy” movie.  This weekend I want to see THOR!!!!

Thor stars Australian Chris Hemsworth, this is the actor who played the father of Captain Kirk in JJ Abrams’s Star Trek.  He will also star in the new version of Red Dawn as Jed, originally played by Patrick Swayze.  Also in the film: Anthony Hopkins plays Odin, Thor’s dad. Natalie Portman looks to be Thor’s love interest, and there are some other up and comers in the other key roles.  I am a bit surprised that Kenneth Branagh directed a comic book, but I liked his version of Hamlet, so this might be better than advertised.

Thor is a Marvel comic that was kind of hit or miss over the years.  He was cool as an Avenger where he fought alongside Wolverine, Ironman, and the others; but maintaining his own storyline and keeping an audience engaged by himself was a tough sell for Marvel.  The main reason for that, Thor is the Norse god of Thunder and son of Odin the Supreme god in the Norse mythos, and it’s hard for teenaged and preteen boys to relate to a demigod, who never had bad acne or got nervous talking to girls.  But with Branagh at the helm, I think this might turn out great or it could be the first Big Stinker of the Summer of 2011.

Here’s the Trailer:
