Right now, at a press conference in Philadelphia, Temple coach John Chaney is retiring after more than 1,000 games coaching. This makes us sad, not just because Chaney has been a valued leader of young men for decades, but also because he's been a rather unending source of amusement.

So many great Chaney moments. Our favorite is still probably when he threatened to kill John Calipari at a press conference, living the dream of countless college basketball fans. But you also have to admire anyone who sends in a player to break somebody's arm. You just can't see that often enough.


Somewhere, today, Bill Cosby cries.
