Alas, I got so caught up in providing DudeSpin with its reader-attracting dose of Pokey Chatman yesterday that I missed this well-written column on the choice facing Gail Goestenkors by Mechelle Voepel, women's hoops writer extraordinaire. She basically breaks the decision down to money and tradition versus something you built from the ground up, and in that respect, I can see why it's not something you take lightly. I just get stuck on one of Voepel's observations - that Texas is a name that was synonymous with progress for women's athletics in the 80's - and wonder if that's still as true today.
Meanwhile, I'd like to think that at least The Dude and I were there in spirit when 200 fans rallied behind Cameron to try to convince Gail to stay. It's interesting that the AP story names Greg Paulus and Martynas Pocius as two of the fans in attendance. No word on whether Paulus committed any turnovers while he was in the crowd.
