This is not a vent board or any other kind of therapy. Before you hit the POST button, ask yourself if your contribution will add to the level of discussion going on.
Important notes on articles:
- Please do not copy entire articles into your post; rather, provide links to them.. We are now links-only for ALL Internet publications. If only a small portion of the article pertains to your post, Fair Use allows you to copy those one or two paragraphs, provided you cite the author's name and the publication for which he writes. Otherwise, put a link in the HTTP Link box.
- Even if you're copying a reference to an article, provide a link to the page from which the article came. We're trying to cut down on duplicate topics, and the posting process will check the link to your article to see if it's already being discussed on this board. At the very least, you'll save yourself some grief on the boards.
- If your first reaction after reading the article you're going to share is the author is uninformed / stupid / a jerk / all of the above, it's not worth sharing with anyone. Not every article needs to be discussed. The more the hair-pulling articles are discussed (e.g. ESPN Page 2), the more the authors will write hair-pulling articles.

Dom Starsia coaches high school in Va. by RagingBull
I think it's equal parts cure for boredom, financial boost (coaches have only recently made some decent money), and an altruistic sense of giving back to the sport that gave them a lot.
Totally agree on the money in the clubs. It's absurd and we are just getting out of the throws of it with my daughter. The issue is that there are way too many talented young men and women playing the sport and not enough spots at quality schools - even at D3 level. Having a coach of Tucker's stature (or Starsia or Pressler's) be able to give a blessing to a kid and call up a college is priceless. And in Highland Park, TX money is not an obstacle.
As an aside, Tucker is awesome and she'll be missed. She coached my daugher's team at camp and I talked to her for a while. She representated Hopkins well.
