Fired Bill Carmody: The Rowley question has been answered

The Rowley question has been answered

according to this, Kyle "I'm seven feet tall and it took me two full seasons to get my first dunk" Rowley is transferring to St. Mary's College. i can't find a mention of his transfer anywhere else, but then again there ain't a whole lot of media coverage of the Gaels in July, so i have to assume this is accurate.

as St. Mary's knocked off Villanova and won two games in the 2010 tournament, i had the pleasure of watching it live. i can say for certain that St. Mary's is neither a high major nor a HIGH high major, as at least one person has repeatedly suggested. i can also say that if there's one player who can replace SMC all-timer Omar Samhan, that player is absolutely not Kyle Rowley. hell, he couldn't even replace Vince Scott.

UPDATE: looks like someone can't take a little good-natured ribbing. i am eternally grateful for your apparent help in taking Kyle Rowley far away from Evanston.

Good riddance, Kyle. If you had put a modicum of effort at using your God-given talents, you could have written your own ticket anywhere. Maybe you will learn that someday.

I can't believe I'm about to type this, but I actually think Rowley will be missed next year, mostly because he's a lot better at rebounding and playing defense than any of the other backup centers on the roster. That's more a shot at Curletti and Peljusic than anything, but still.

Well, first off, I have to wish Kyle Rowley good luck. He may have stunk up the floor as a basketball player (and let's face it- he did that and then some), but he may actually be an ok guy. I have no way of knowing one way or another, so I'll just wish him the best on his travels.

Based on the way he played in Evanston, though, I have a hard time imagining he'll be able to get anything more than mop up minutes at any other D-I school. But this does raise an interesting question- if Rowley is able exceed all expectations at St. Mary's and actually become a productive player- what does that say about our current coaching staff?
