Why the Nike Portal ? Mrbluesky 18:11, 8 February 2006 (UTC)
2 incidents were named.
1. Racist sign incident, article claims he put up the sign himself. I have searched the Washington Post archives, and the incident is referred to a few times, but nowhere does it say he did it. Respectable source trumps some webpage.
2. Unsourced, apocryphal feel.
3) This entry takes up entirely too much space discussing tawdry, impertinent and unverified myth & legend -- matters that, if deserving a place at all (that is, if they were sourced), belong in a sentence, perhaps a sentence clause. Examples 1) the drug leader vignette, 2) the non-specific, & again, unsupported, aside regarding Thompson's manipulation of racial tension in motivating his early-80's clubs. Hence, this reads as some Hoya undergraduate's riffing, quasi-sociological, faux-historical meanderings regarding the school's legendary basketball coach. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Rande M Sefowt (talk • contribs) 04:12, 11 April 2009 (UTC)
Years at Georgetown
Is it not an undersight not to have the specific years of his Georgetown tenure listed? Czrisher 12:36, 31 March 2007 (UTC)
I believe this statement is erroneous.
Thompson still holds conference records for most overall Big East wins (231), most regular-season Big East wins (198) and conference championships (seven regular season, six tournaments).
Jim Boeheim of Syracuse has won 323 Big East games regular season.
