Best point of the article is the level of class that JT3 restored to head coaching job. I'm not saying Escherick was a class-less guy, but he portrays the paternal role that his pops was known for. Also, JT3 has restored the role of GU head coach to a high role of respect. Did Craig really belong on the same floor as the likes of BE established names like Lappas & Boehiem?

Also, while pops was respected, there's no denyign a certain thuggish image that was associated with G'town bball (Exhibit A - Cuba Gooding in Boyz in da Hood). JT3 presence & style of play have done wonders with portraying G'town as the wholesome Jesuit institution that it is. That by itself is worth $1MM.
