Have to say pretty ballsy by GT. Yep, Bush league. Glad he turned them down.

Even the GT fan posts on HoyaTalk thought it was bush league.
I can't think of a time when a current sitting coach leaving his school going to a school in the same conference.
Has that ever happened?

It probably has happened but I would guess not too often. Is it verified they approached Mack or just rumor?

The only one I know of is Tubby Smith, who I think went from GA to KY. However, I don't believe the $4M offer for three reasons:

1. I don't believe GTown would ever offer any coach this amount of money.
2. I don't believe the amount would have been disclosed. Interesting none of the others GTown reportedly offered publicized the figures.
3. I don't believe GTown would poach another coach within their own conference.

Well, Anti-Homer, are you saying that it's likely or even possible or probable that this obviously Bogus Story was concocted by some "Shadowy" mysterious SOMEONE who wants to trick us into "Hating" Georgetown? L OH L

It was planted by someone wanting to get Mack a raise.

Weren't K-State and W.Va.in the same league when tHuggy switched jobs? Or did W.Va.join later?

I asked a ref if he could give me a technical foul for thinking bad things about him. He said, of course not. I said, well, I think you stink. And he gave me a technical. You can't trust em.
