So I have been staying away from commenting on this assclown Tom Penders, the current head coach of Houston Cougers. Apparently Penders was taking shots at Howland for not responding to his requests for scheduling a game with Houston. Here is Greg Doyel from CBS Sportsline giving the lowdown:
Penders also wants to recruit in Los Angeles, and playing a home-and-home series with the Bruins would help. UCLA coach Ben Howland isn't interested in helping Penders build his program. Imagine that.
Howland turned down Penders' overtures, and so Penders took a shot at Howland in the Times, saying, "So many people just want to protect their own little nests and have a fool-the-fan mentality."
Good line, Turnaround Tom. But then, he's full of good lines (among other things).
Penders might want to be careful with that mouth of his. With his track record, too much attention might be a bad thing.
Three years later, Penders resigned at George Washington as the NCAA investigated misuse of telephone cards by players.
UPDATED 1:24 pm EST:Thanks to the guys at BON for pointing us to this Texan take on the Houston assclown:
Since that first meeting, Penders has gone from being Texas? coach to George Washington?s coach to a television/radio analyst to being Houston?s coach.
During that journey, I?ve figured out that Penders speaks for effect. That all he is concerned about is advancing his own self-serving agenda. And it?s all about Tom. Penders fooled me for a few years but now I?m old enough to know better.
Can someone help me out on this?
