I played for Tad at LHS. Overall I really liked him as a coach; some guys

did not because he was pretty hardcore. Flushed out a lot of the self-entitled guys with talent who just didn't want to work or didn't want to play unless they were guaranteed a starting spot. But coming from being a state champ in HS and then playing at Kansas, his expectations were high and we were a very mediocre group of players...and that might be giving us too much credit.

At one point he got tired of trying to tell us how to do something and decided to show us by popping in a VHS of one of his old Greeley game tapes. Dude was a player, that's for sure.

My favorite Tad memory: when I was a Junior on JV and the Varsity squad had blown a game the night before by being unable hold the lead due to poor free throw shooting late in the game, in practice he made all the players from Varsity and JV line up along the baseline at the end of practice and each player had to shoot a 1-and-1. Missing the front end meant everyone had to run a double suicide; making it but missing the back end meant running a single. I think I was blind by the time it was my turn.
