Goodbye and good luck

The moment Penn basketball fans have feared for the last decade has finally been realized, as coach Fran Dunphy is moving on to a bigger and better program at Temple.

Right now, my emotions are torn. Should I be upset that the man who led the Quakers to 310 wins (first all-time at Penn, second in the Ivies) as well as nine Ivy League Championships and NCAA appearances in 17 years is leaving us? Or happy for him that he's moving on to a program where he can actually succeed on a national level? I guess I'm feeling a little of both.

Fran, thanks for everything and good luck with the Owls.
