BONNIE BERNSTEIN: Frank Girardi, 1972-2007 at Lycoming, 257 victories, won 72 percent of his games, one of only 17 coaches on any level -- any level -- to reach 250 wins at one school. Coach, Coach Bowes was talking about the importance of having an eye for talent, hiring coaches around who can complement you. But you think about that: 250 wins at one school, 29 straight winning seasons. What's the formula? What really worked? If you had a bunch of young, aspiring coaches sitting here in front of you, what would you -- how would you guide them?
