Damn, wrong Cheney
Temple coach John Chaney retired. He had his flaws, but I'm thankful about two things in his career. One was when he tried to start a fight with John Calipari; that was just great comedy and Chaney did what I'm sure plenty of more politically correct coaches wanted to do.
Chaney's other gift to the game was Temple's match-up zone. When Temple's defense was well tuned, they had the ability to beat anyone. Chaney's zone proved how powerful good teamwork and hustle can be.
