Default Isiah Thompson Introduced as New Florida International Coach

Just heard the soundbite on the local TV news of the Florida International University President announcing Isiah Thompson as the new Basketball Coach. Maybe this was not a slip up as Ole Zeke may be taking a new identity as he is running out of things to screw up (Pine Knob, CBA, Announcing, Pacers, Knicks, plus others I am sure to be missing).

Good luck to Isaih and the new team. Hopefully he won't bring a law-suit to the university.

One of the top 50 players in NBA history... I think he went to Red Lobster a lot too.

Smart folks. Why wait until Christmas to give the people of Florida the gift of firing Isiah. The man has a brown thumb. Everything he touches off the basketball court turns to crap.

Isiah just needs to retire and go fishing or something. Trouble seems to follow him no matter where he goes.

And it is always the fault of someone else. I loved Zeke as a player, but think he is a colossally incompetent tool of the court.
