It's weird how you feel when it's over.
What do you do without a game to play, a practice to plan?
What do you say?
How do you transition back into the family's schedule?
There is a tremendous amount of energy taken from you after the season is over. You feel numb...empty!
The best thing for me is to start to plan. Here is a list of things I will address with my staff tomorrow:
player meetings - grades, summer plans, what to improve upon
evaluation of the season - where can we get better - personnel, drills, style of play.....
seniors - what do they want to do for the future and how can we help them
moving into the Crum Basketball Center
recruiting - this is an every day topic - we need to discuss "home visits" for next week and "official visits" for prospects visiting our campus at the end of the month.
calendars - I need to make sure trips are planned for the CUSA Spring meetings, Mustang Club meetings, banquets, etc.
Sprint - I have to travel to Chicago to cover the NCAA's for Sprint as they stream a studio show to their cell phone carriers.
Then, personally, I need to coordinate my calendar with my wife's to make sure I attend our children's events and games while also scheduling some family trips for the summer.
Planning will take my mind off the finality of the season's end and get me excited about the future.
Next year, I "plan" on staying a little longer in Memphis!
