TOLEDO, Ohio – Two members of Kent State’s coaching staff who used to play for the Golden Flashes spent part of Saturday night catching up with their old teammates in a technologically advanced version of what they used to call Jacuzzi Talk.

Mike Scott, live on iPhone from Indianapolis
Assistant coach DeAndre Haynes and director of basketball operations Mike McKee sat in their hotel room at Toledo’s Grand Plaza Hotel talking with KSU alums Mike Scott and Jay Youngblood. But Scott was at his home near Indianapolis where is he is recovering from a minor injury that forced him to return from Europe where he had been playing professionally. And Youngblood was at his new home in Lebanon, where he is a star in that country’s pro league.
Scott’s face was on Haynes’ iPhone thanks to the FaceTime program. Youngblood showed up via Skype on Haynes’ iPad.
“We were making fun of each other the way we used to and having a great time, ” said McKee. “It was just like when we were players. Back then we used to have this thing called Jacuzzi Talk where all of the players would get together and talk about a lot of stuff.”
“It was always on the road hanging out at the hotel hot tub, ” said Haynes. “You know how we talk about how ‘Tradition Never Graduates’ at Kent State? Well, that also goes with traditions like this. Our current players even now still have Jacuzzi Talk. And the thing about Jacuzzi Talk is you have to be 100-percent truthful. If someone asks you a question, you have to answer honestly. And nothing that is said ever leaves Jacuzzi Talk, so I can’t say what was said even last night when we brought back Jacuzzi Talk with Skype and FaceTime.”
