Ever heard of starting six players and taking the intentional technical foul? I'm a big fan of legendary coach and former head coach of UNLV Jerry Tarkanian's blog, and in his latest post he talked about doing just that: starting the six seniors on Senior Day. Sometimes the right thing to do is just the right thing to do. I've never really thought about it too much myself now that I am a coach and somewhat far removed from my playing days. But I remember how I felt when I was a senior in high school, and having been mostly a bench player most of my career, being given the opportunity to start my final game, it was something special.
