Welcome to head coaching David Carter

David Carter achieves his goal of becoming a head coach, at a school he obviously prefers and 'inherits' a roster full of talent and potential. Talk about livin' large after paying his dues.

Then this hits.

Full story on Phillips' arrest, dismissal from Pack

Given a second chance after being cited for petty larceny earlier this season, freshman Ahyaro Phillips was kicked off the Nevada basketball team Friday after his second run-in with the law in seven months.

Phillips was arrested and charged with possession of a dangerous weapon on school property by the University of Nevada Police Department late Wednesday night...

Go here for the remainder.

Phillips showed some spunk playing in the paint despite not having a lot of weight and bulk to throw around. But on the bright side, the Wolf Pack basketball program now has another scholarship to use. Plus, overall it's better to cut the ties to a problem person now rather than say mid-season.

It's not sticking one's neck out in making this prediction: the basketball message boards associated with Utah State and New Mexico State will soon be going into overdrive.

Ahyaro was a player with great athleticism and would have been a great roll player for the team so he'll be missed, but the biggest problem for the Pack associated with this incident is it could cost us an important recruit that is currently making up his mind.

He may have screwed up his entire future just to show he's a tough guy.
