Larranaga Tries to Pump Up “U” Fans
Say this about new Miami (FL) basketball coach Jim Larranaga: He brings a lot of enthusiasm.
Larranaga showed as much at Miami Madness last week, which kicked off the basketball season. He fired up the small gathering in attendance, firing t-shirts into the crowd and even leading them in a rendition of Bon Jovi’s “Livin’ on a Prayer” played by the school’s band.
However, we don’t think he’s smiling on the inside after leaving a George Mason program he made relevant by taking it to the Final Four in 2006.
We know he’s now in the ACC but, considering the exposure of a Hurricanes scandal and the program’s lukewarm support, it’s likely he’d rather be back with the Patriots, where his antics were beloved.
Check the below video, which is, well, kind of depressing.
