"Nobody ever says never"

"Nobody ever says never," Joe Scott said Tuesday. But he said he is firmly committed to rebuilding Air Force basketball. Does this really mean that Scott plans on staying, building the Falcons into a respectable, competitive program or that he is leaving that mental door open? We can only hope.

Plenty to read about with our high flying Falcon basketball team these days.  From the team's continued record-breaking efforts, conference leading standings and winning streak to the possibility of Joe Scott leaving the Academy for another venue after this magical year.

Joe says leaving is the furthest thing from his mind right now but he sure has a lot of Falcon fans wondering and pretty concerned.  Truth is the program likely would not fair well if Scott left so quickly after his first winning year but, those are decisions pretty much beyond the average Falcon fan's control.  If we (the fans) we size and single giant voice (along with funds) of many of the major universities we would probably have something to say... but then that's another story.

Personally I believe Joe Scott to be a man of high integrity and goals unlike those of many other college coaches.  We are sure to see many offers down the road, much like Fisher DeBerry has seen over the years from many high profile institutions.  Coach DeBerry had his personal reasons for staying and here's hoping Joe Scott finds many similar and some of his very own reasons to stay right here at Falcon "U".

For your enjoyment and even enlightenment for some, here are a few current story links related to the Falcon basketball team.  FM
