Austin: Eye on Starkey

By Jean Neuberger - March 17, 2007

Bob Starkey had said before that the transition of a new head coach had gone smoothly, mostly because the players like and respect their acting head coach. Watching Starkey's reactions on the bench, it's obvious that the transition for him has been fairly smooth as well.

Starkey has acted like a head coach from the beginning. He's stalked the sideline, barked orders, talked non-stop with his assistants, and has argued with the refs over a blocking foul called on Quianna Chaney. In the huddle, you can see him with his dry erase board in hand, drawing plays and pointing to his players as to what he wants them to do.

I'm sure it's a lot tougher than it looks, but so far, Starkey looks like he was born to do this job.

LSU now has the ball with 10:41 to go in the first half, up 19-12 on UNC-Asheville.
