Villanova has seemingly fallen off the map recently.
They don't have a chance at getting Donovan. Why would he leave Florida for the dysfunctional mess that UCLA has become. Wright isn't a good fit. Neither is Stevens. Small town Indiana isn't going to tinsel town. I think Gerry hit the nail. UCLA is going to hire someone who is an attractive recruiter and coaches tempo. They are tired of Howland's grind it out defensive style. They are going to go for "Show-time".
10-19 with a returning talent base that led to Howland's 11-17 record during his first season, t he year after Lavin was fired , will get a school's attention.
And quite rightly so.
UCLA is a funny program. We all think of it as one of the historical elite; but in reality it was a second tier program until Wooden came in, and it took him 15 years before the magic began. But since his remarkable 12 year run, its been a slow slide except for Harrick's championship year. They made a big mistake not bring Denny Crum back in after Wooden retired. They would have added another 3-4 rings over the next 15 years if they had.
My conspiracy theory is by the beginning of 2015 Dodds, Brown, Barnes and Augie will all be gone.
9 and 4 at Texas sucks!

thanks for the history lesson.
...and Wright is recruiting to suburban Philadelphia, would be interesting to see how he did in Los Angeles, he certainly has the wardrobe.
