I don't read other message boards, but I do have a friend who does read other message boards. He texted me this...
Apparently after today's win, Fran traveled to Champagne to visit either a recruit or potential recruit(s) and watch them play basketball.
Nice to see the coach working hard on the recruiting trail. The guy works hard.

Yeah. Fran skipped his TV show and went for a quick trip to Springfield, IL to see Champaign Centennial PF Michale Finke play in a tournament.
Yeah, I get the feeling Fran is one of those people that is 100% dedicated to whatever he does and would be successful in anything he chose to do.
He also takes time to email to random fans as well.... I sent him an email to congratulate him on taking IA's coaching position three years ago. I got a repy two weeks later thanking me for the support. One classy man.
We have the right coach for the job. And his "I am not here to go to the turny,I am here to win National Championships" comment is exactly what you want to hear. I think it is awesome.
Gold medals aren't really made of gold. They're made of sweat, determination, and a hard-to-find alloy called guts.
Great point. To be a champion, you have to think and act like a champion, and he's got the program headed in that direction.
