Florida Gulf Coast!!! Wow!!!
I had never heard of FGCU until a friend of mine dated a girl who was going there. Totally forgot about that school till now. Craziness.
I was really hoping for the Golden Gophers to take down Duke. Oh well.
Tubby lost his job today. Hard to believe given that the team wasn't all that bad.
Tubby was not developing players, good players were leaving and doing better elsewhere and fundraising was falling off. It was pretty widely accepted up here that AD Teague (who, IMO, is doing a good job) was going to bring in his own guy sooner or later.
Tubby wasn't cutting it in the Big10 seasons. 46-62 in conference play is a good reason to let someone go. A couple colleges are going to get nice pickups in Howland and Smith.
How long until Shaka Smart heads to Minnesota and how far will VCU fall when that happens?
he's not going to minnesota. he'll go to ucla or stay.
I'd say UCLA is more likely but the athletic director at Minnesota came from VCU. That could play into it as well.
i'd honestly be surprised if he left. i think he's waiting for one of the big, big time programs to open up (duke, unc). ucla seems like a media clusterfuck and 2.5 million there is less than 1.5 in richmond. his wife also apparently really wants to stay in richmond, and you know what they say..
they're about to break ground here on a new $15 million practice facility too.
speak of the devil:
Yeah from what I've heard too he loves Richmond, they treat him like a god (rather than expect god-like results at a major school) and you know what, not everyone wants to deal with the bullshit of a big-time school and it is totally understandable. Its why Butler's coach has stayed there.
Mark Few at Gonzaga is another example.
as i've been saying for weeks (and everyone has told me i'm wrong): his wife loves it here.
I wonder what UCLA or MN were going to offer money wise. He must fucking love it there. I'd say once Calipari decides hes had his fill at UK, that's where he will end up. Or North Carolina. Duke has Wojo who is the heir to throne. Indiana will lock up Crean for a long time. Boeheim is getting older so maybe Cuse.
Looks like Northwestern is going to hire Duke's Collins. Good hire there.
IU extended Crean's contract back in November at the beginning of basketball season. He'll be a Hoosier for a long time.
I'll be watching the MSU game at 9am Saturday morning in Shanghai at a sports bar with some other MSU alums. Should be a fun time.
