The other WCC schools will have the catholic students but BYU will have the Pope.

I don't know why he'd go from an assistant at an NBA team to an assistant at BYU.

So does Childs now see an opportunity to improve his game with a former big man as the head coach and stay for another year? Or has that ship sailed?

I wasn't being serious. Although he will be out of a job.

Nice thread title, btw!
The Mormon school is being led by a Pope
Oh, that one had flown over my head. I understood the white smoke as in picking the next Pope, but forgot to relate it to Mark's name.

Yeah, I wish, but I find it hard to believe that he'd take a job with the pay a BYU BB assistant coach would make. Yes, he might be out of a job, but really, he's done quite well at getting opportunities, even without the prior experience, so he must be impressive.

I really started to have my heart set on Madsen, but I also think Pope will do a great job.

I think it great. Even if his goal is to use us as a stepping stone to a Kentucky job. He will need to build the Y to a nationally relevant program before UK or any big time team would be interested in him. So, go for it, and we'll come along for the ride.
