Ness Selmani, former Lady Rams soccer coach for 18 years, has a letter to the editor in today's New York Times in response to an op-ed about the call to lower the baskets in the WNBA so that players can slam dunk in greater numbers.

She was the women's soccer coach yet she writes a letter about women's basketball. That's a conspiracy theory!   Wink     Grin       Evil


(great letter!........ don't you agree?)

It seemed like one of those gender neutral names...... having never seen it before, the name struck as a woman at first. I should have Googled him.... or at least asked Bruce Jenner first.

Why do we refer to the women's teams as Lady Rams?

We don't.  Some still do though.

Sports blogs often confuse stupidity with edginess.  Just because I can call someone a name, doesnít mean Iím insightful, or tough and edgy.  It just means Iím a jerk.  Itís a high tech place for what idiots used to do on bar stools, in school yards, and on gas station bathroom walls.

No, It is well established that all our women's teams are Rams not Lady Rams. The Title of this thread should be Women's Soccer Coach...
