Guru's WNBA Report: All-Decade Conn. Sun Media & Player Squads

By Mel Greenberg

First, depending how you are reading Thursday's Guru site, the coaching carousel post stays in one place, remains dated to its original May 1 -- have no control over that -- but given the popularity the Guru continues to update daily as exits, hires and other related events occur.

When that is done, he will notify through twitter @womhoopsguru and also at the top of these blogs until all the jobs are filled and the exits stop. The post is easy to find to click onto down the left column.

OK, in a rambunctious mood, the Guru has a musings post under this talking about the Butler women's team which will be joining the Atlantic 10, a little item of Temple star Shey Peddy, the former senior taken by the WNBA Chicago Sky, speculation on a Thursday press conference involving Kentucky's Matthew Mitchell, and Delaware' trip this week to the White House.

Now, to go on, this one is for the Guru's friends in Connecticut. Since the WNBA Sun is celebrating its 10th anniversary by asking fans to pick the all-time ten players from everyone that was ever on the roster -- the Guru will give you his choices at the bottom -- the Guru thought you all would like to pick the all-time media group who has covered the squad up there in Casino-land at Mohegan in Uncasville near New London over the last decade.

Feel free to email the Guru (poll416@gmail.com) your choices and comments -- your privacy will be respected.

A few things before offering the group -- The Guru decided to honor the five columnists who have been on the scene by separating them out and making them combination coach/management of the media team. There may have to be another breakout of electronic from print/internet.

But the five are Jeff Jacobs (Hartford Courant), Mike DiMauro (New London Day), Chris Elsberry (Conn. Post), the late Randy Smith (Manchester Journal Inquirer), and the late Dave Solomon (New Haven Register).

Two photographers are also given automatic entry -- Jessica Hill (AP) and Mike D'Avino (Sportspage magazine)

Now, Here Are The Bylines and Other Names of Today and Yester-year to make your choices. Note To Rich Elliott at the CPost -- Believe you have been minimal but someone will ask so everyone, there's answer.
PS. This tongue in cheek post is a way to pay tribute to the largest contigent of any franchise in the 16-year WNBA history. New York was big in the early years --- looooooong ago.

Also, Jon Erickson listed below has one of the more illustrious histories working as a beat person, becoming team PR in WNBA Minnesota, and then coming back to work the media room of the Sun in addition to being women's SID at Yale.

The media crowd also has such famed noteworthy's as former Staford SID Steve Racynski, Coast Guard SID Jason Southard and past operatives in the place were also UConn SIDs -- Randy Press and Leigh Torbin.
