Food for thought as Thanksgiving is about to arrive.

At one time, I thought Bob Hallberg was going to coach St. Xavier University’s women’s basketball team and be the school’s athletic director forever.

Sure, I knew it wasn’t going to be a reality. But as one year turned into another year, and the Cougars were rising from area power to national elite in women’s hoops, I was hoping that if anyone could beat Father Time, it would be Hallberg.
