Cremins article from Post & Courier

Cremins: 'I'm very happy'

A Wofford student with half of his face painted gold and the other half painted black spent the better part of an evening screaming at College of Charleston basketball players. He was reverently polite, however, as he approached the Cougars' head coach after the game.

"Mr. Cremins," said the student, extending a Sharpie and a game program, "May I have your autograph?"

Oh, what a wild ride. Down and then up, frustration and second thoughts and adulation. And that was just Charleston's 71-58 victory at Wofford on Feb. 17, a game the Cougars trailed 15-4 early and 33-29 at halftime, one night that served as an abridged version of a season.

Bobby Cremins, in his first year back as a head coach since leaving Georgia Tech by mutual agreement six seasons ago, seems to have embraced his "leap of faith" despite tougher competition than he expected and lots of work to do on the recruiting trail.
