i have a friend who is head coach somewhere now - he was asst for alford - hates him - i mean haaaaaaates him. his opinion of sam isn't much better. i just can't tell any of those stories - it'd point to close to my buddy.
an alford - creighton story. as usual - altman was doing his thing through the MVC season when SA was at Mizzou st. creighton had a player from eastern europe named karlikanovas. he was pretty good player - not the star but a solid contributor. two days before CU was to play alford - and this is probably mid feb not at the beginning of season - he picks up the phone to the NCAA and questions karlikanovas' eligibility. so the kid has to sit for the SMS game - few days after the NCAA says - kid is fine - play on. he's THAT kind of asshole.
