    I have 5 solid friends up here in the Rams Club at UNC. I do business with these people and... View More

    I don't want Lebo to go. I want him t stay, so I hope Roy coaches for several more years.

    They need to pay him some huge dollars. If not he will move on. UNC is still anywhere from 2-4 years away, IMO. I wish Lebo all of the best in wins and be happy in his present position. ECU was on my list back in the day. Transportation was an issue for me then.

    Lebo is doing great, but I don't think he will get the nod at UNC when Roy retires unless he gets us into the NCAA tournament and maybe a conference title. In my opinion UNC wants someone who knows not only how to win titles, but to get teams to the tournament consistently. If Lebo starts getting us titles and NCAA tournament birth, then that all but seals the deal for him to coach at UNC.

    I will say that it is my understanding that he loves ECU and has embraced his inner pirate. He is not a Skip Holtz. He wants to be here and we want him to be our coach. He has 54 wins and hopefully 55 tonight. Next season if all things go well he will be the winningest coach in ECU history. He needs 71 to hit that milestone.

    Go Pirates! Beat Weber State!

    So what do you think, tcoutouzis? Should Jeff be trying to recruit Rodney Purvis, now that he has announced he's transferring from State? Some say the reason for his departure is that he wants to play point guard, and can't get that with the Pack. I bet Lebo could coach 'em up for the Pirates.

    The thought has also occurred to me that in the 2014 season (the first one in which Purvis would be eligible to play as a transfer) Carolina a slated to have not just two, but four, legitimate point guards. One of them is Stillman White, from Wilmington, who is scheduled to return from a two year Mormon mission. He did a pretty decent job filling in for Kendall Marshall when he got hurt a year ago in the tournament. Something tells me Lebo would be more inclined to give him a shot than Purvis, who may be a head case. Think Lebo has talked with Roy about this?

    ^^^ Good point Ken. I almost forgot about Stillman. Since this is late, we don't have to wonder about Purvis. I wish him the best in his career.

    Jeff Lebo has sealed his deal in the History of ECU. Great for him. They should extend his contract, and a few more dollars would be good too.

    I think Lebo should do that, but I am not sure if he is. I know that he can't play for any ACC team. If he wants PT then a mid-major will be the way for him to go. That or a bottom feeder from a Top 6 basketball conference. I think he would work well here as we do have an opening at guard.

    The one thing I can say about Lebo is that he tends to straighten out the head cases. It will take some work, but from what I have witnessed he will be able to straighten Purvis up if he came to ECU. I highly doubt he would come though.
