"It's been kind of like a big brother, little brother relationship," said Bishop Montgomery Coach Doug Mitchell. "They are totally different people. " Cobbs, one of the best point guards in the Pac-12 Conference, has that life-is-serious view. Solomon, a handful of a 6-foot-10 power forward, does not.

This is not a "feud" between employees and management, and owner Wendy McCaw is hardly the underdog in an ideological battle with Santa Barbara's city government.
