What the hell. It isn't happening, but we toss out names like confetti for Mack's job, so why not?
Tad Boyle? Not exactly young, but impressive resume for a guy who started late. Definitely gets a lot out of his team.
I know a lot of people were lusting after Stevens, but I don't know about him sometimes. He doesn't really strike me as an offensive guru, and I'm certain he has no interest in leaving the Indianapolis area unless the perfect, perfect job is available.
Shaka Smart? Shaves his head for the streamlined effect to emphasize the speed at which his teams play.
Greg Marshall? Again, not really a young guy.
Randle's AAU coach? Mudiay's?
F it. Give Self 10 million a year. 20 if you have to. 30 if he's a hard bargainer.
I want a guy with Texas ties and energy like Buzz
Shaka would be interesting. He isn't old and white, so it will not happen.
Not to mention his sideline dancing talents?
Yeah not sure what kind of baggage he has.
Deloss doesnt go for anyone who wont toe the company line.
Who cares, Texas should be a football school.
If you don't know the difference between the sports then you don't know the difference.
What are your thoughts on Frank Haith?
Hu are you?
National Director of Scouting & Recruiting Analyst
Stoops or Saban
Signatures are stupid. You should block them.
Barnes is just doing a solid for Mack and taking some if the heat off him. Spread it around. Also, we feel good about ten schools in our league.
Deloss will likely give pay raises to Barnes and entire staff.
My only acceptable choices are Coach K, Izzo, Calipari, Roy Williams, or Phil Jackson. Throw 10 years, $100 million at them and watch what happens. Anything less is settling.
Gruden > Stoops and Saban.
Maybe we will play him in the loser's bracket!
I think it is a pretty good bet that Marquette will beat Mississippi State. Texas will have to beat USC, which lost by 30 to Illinois. It's kind of hard to call that one, considering what we saw last night.
Bierce, what are your thoughts on Anthony Grant? Not a ton of skins on the wall, but he's had success and can obviously recruit.
Here is the same conversation 8 months ago for some name ideas.
If Texas was to let go of Barnes? Who would you guys like to see get a call?
Mike Anderson (Arkansas) would be one for me because of d
John Calipari...& yes, I'm serious
real question: is there really a such thing as 'Texas ties' in basketball? Seems more like Texas AAU ties?
Stevens would be a no.
No way Texas hires Buzz Williams. Not with our current AD.
Shaka Smart is an interesting candidate.
Disciplina praesidium civitatis
He dresses well. I'm not entirely sure he is that great of a recruiter, and he has no contacts in Texas that I am aware of.
On the one hand, you have to like his ability to lock up his own area, but I don't know if he brings much connection to other areas. He has 3 big name recruits in the last couple of years. Lacey grew up 100 miles from Tuscaloosa. Pollard not much farther away, and the Mississippi options kind of fell apart for Pollard. The only player of impact on the Alabama roster from outside of Alabama or a stone's throw from Alabama is Trevor Releford.
Right now, Alabama's class for 2013 is a highly regarded center from Alabama and pretty good PF from Tennessee who has been playing the last couple of season at Christ School in NC. He missed on the big target of Cat Barber who is from a school less than 100 miles from where he coached at VCU.
I don't fault a guy for locking up his region first and then expanding the sweep, but you'd think a guy who grew up in Florida, spent years as an assistant at Florida and who coached for years at VCU would already have a broader sweep.
