Dave Paulsen interview on WUSA9

New George Mason head coach Dave Paulsen appeared on CBS in the DC area (WUSA9) before the national championship game last night. He said a lot of similar things that he did in the press conference but I definitely like hearing him say he will adjust his style based on the players. Watch the full video below.

  • Andy Minor

    Love the “highlights” of us going to sleep on VCU and coughing up a ball to Fordham.

    Let’s hope those days are over.

    • gmuhoops

      Haha yeah I thought the game footage they used was interesting.

  • GaMoo79

    I love it every time he says we will “take care of the ball”. Haven’t seen that in a while.

    • mkaufman1

      Can’t wait to hear “WILL WADE IS A BETTER COACH THAN SHAKA”

      and “WILL WADE LOVES RICHMOND HE WILL NEVER LEAVE”

      • GaMoo79

        Thanks for including the name. I had forgotten it from the paper this morning.

        • GMU-74-EVR

          Another young hire. He’s 32.

      • upside2013

        New coach from the south is going to have deal with adjustment playing in the A10. GMU wil sweep them next season. HA, HA, HA

    • Chris Hirsch

      Seems like a good hire for them, he has done pretty well at Chatt.

  • GaMoo79

    Breaking news…Wade returns to VCU.According to local news sources.

    • GMU-74-EVR

      Gamoo do you know if Wade is going to bring his own style to VCU or are they going to keep using HAVOC?

      • GaMoo79

        He has the same style. That was one of the criteria for the new coach…that he continue the brand that the current players signed on for, that recruits like to play, and that has energized the fan base. Wade calls it CHAOS.

        • GMU-74-EVR

          Great. Just when I thought that style was gone, it’s back.

          • upside2013

            Havoc out
            Ball movement and hustle in

          • upside2013

            This fad had its day and with GMU DP 2.0 ball care no worries….

        • upside2013

          I call it maxwell smart which dates me.

  • GaMoo79

    Does anybody else think its time we had some kind of update from somebody about how things are going with Coach Dave and the players? After all, big splash, then nothing.

    • gmuhoops

      Not sure what you’re expecting. Teams can only do workouts and such at this point and it’s not like we have local media that covers this team anyway.

      • GaMoo79

        Not sure what I’m expecting either. Just excited. Thought maybe someone would have tweeted about how the first meeting went or something. Please dont take what I said as a complaint toward you or anybody else. Just stoked and curious.

        • GMU-74-EVR

          Now that we have fully replaced the old regime (Merten, TOC, Blewitt) with new leadership (Cabrera, Edwards and Paulsen) how about some new branding. That old Mason logo is over a decade old.

          • GaMoo79

            I like the idea of having a longstanding logo that is recognizeable over the years. Like the Yankees NY or Nebraska N. I’m not a big fan of change just for the sake of change or to sell more gear, which a lot of pro teams do. What we have now sure beats that water gymnastics logo we used to have! Still, I’m not crazy about it. My idea is to use the capital M with the green and gold quill look at the top and maybe incorporate the name Mason or Patriots into that. Simple yet bold, without being too busy or garish.

          • GMU-74-EVR

            Well everyone’s entitled to their two pennies. And we just heard yours.

          • GaMoo79

            What I said was not meant to be critical of what you said 74. Actually, I agree that we need a new logo. I’d just like us to pick a good one and stick with it.

      • Matt Cerilli

        I think we are all just curious/eager to see if Gilbert stays, who the assistant coaches will be, etc.

        • gmuhoops

          It is surprising we have heard nothing about assistants yet, that usually seems to happen quickly after a hire.

    • upside2013

      Patience my freind GaMoo 79 and that said am excited to her every tid bit available on new developments.
