We especially enjoyed - and can relate to - how Cunningham still can't bring herself to call her old coach "Muffet."
"She'll call and say, 'Hi, Beth, It's Muffet.' And I'll say, 'Oh, hi, Coach. How are you doing?" I guess it's the ultimate sign of respect. It's like your parents, you know? I could never, ever call my mother and father anything other than 'Mom' or 'Dad.' It's the same situation here. To me (McGraw) will always be 'Coach'."
Our only disappointment was in learning that Notre Dame won't be coming to VCU anytime soon, as Cunningham can't bring herself to coach against McGraw. That's certainly understandable. But selfishly, we were hoping such a matchup would give us a chance to zip up I-64 and get an autographed poster of Skylar Diggins.
Oh, well, Longwood plays at Notre Dame on Dec. 28. Maybe new Lancers assistant and ex-Notre Dame star Lindsay Schrader can hook us up....
