    It's not a Schtick, when I got to Northern towards the end of his undergrad, he has been the same dude the entire time.

    It isn't at all my personality and if i didnt know him to the whatever extent that I do personally, I would absolutely have many terms for him. I could never be that way, but he is true to himself and mixes in the coach Meyer stuff. It's a good mix and has worked for him.
    I think his personality is really going to be beneficial in a place like Laramie. Especially when it's inside a package of being a Wyoming native. Have to drum up interest both for fan attendance and NLI funds. That can require a lot of energy.

    I agree. You can’t fake it that long. That was a poor choice of words on my part. What I meant was when you hit a tough stretch that positivity would be annoying but his attitude worked then too.

    Hiring her as the head coach was a mistake in general. Total PR move all the way through.

    At least Sundance has experience as a basketball coach. The hiring of Gottlieb is a PR stunt by Josh Moon that will likely temporarily raise the exposure of the UWGB brand and ultimately fail spectacularly. Gottlieb continuing to do his radio show while coaching basically means the assistant coaches will be in charge and Doug will be a puppet. Congrats Josh Moon, you did it.

    You can joke about his record being barely above .500, but going from 9-50 to 48-46 is impressive. On another note, his replacement at Green Bay is an interesting hire as well. I can't say that I ever listen to Gottlieb, but some of his stuff does make it across my timeline. It will be interesting to see a mid to low level D1 college coach continue a national radio show at the same time.

    I'm sure it's a complete coincidence that those are the records of the programs before he took them over, it's hard to fall short of expectations that don't exist.

Every place he has been over that time has seen improvement and had good seasons. I would love to see Sunny in the same place for a few years to see what kind of program he can build. I think he is a fantastic coach and has an unmatched energy. I don't think he's reached the end of his coaching journey yet either, but I look forward to seeing what he can do with the Cowboys.
    I somewhat expected that this would be where he'd end up before too long. I don't know if he'll keep rising up the ranks down the road, though I personally think he'd have more success than Tim Miles at that next step up the coaching ladder beyond the Mountain West. His energy and "juice" on the sidelines and on the recruiting trail should serve him useful in his efforts recruiting kids to Laramie. But like the U of M, I believe Wyoming has struggled to put together NLI funds. That's possibly his biggest hurdle to overcome.

    Side note: I wonder if he could lure his brother out of coaching retirement.
