re: Alabama and Tennessee: Better Basketball Job? - wm72
[quote]BUT I do think that UF is now accustomed to success, and would put forth the money and effort to stay relevant more so than most other schools in the SEC.[/quote] That may well be true. Certainly agree that they would put forth more effort than a lot of the SEC. My only hesitation w...

re: Alabama and Tennessee: Better Basketball Job? - wm72
Yeah, there's always a lot of decent points back in forth in arguing why certain programs are better but, in the end, there's just not much difference in the SEC schools after Kentucky. The only people who are wrong are the one's saying all the better (or maybe all of them period) SEC jobs aren...

re: Alabama and Tennessee: Better Basketball Job? - wm72
I would think they're about even right now since Tennessee has the edge in recent support and facility but Alabama may have the better AD situation. However, when threads come up discussing the differences in almost [i]all[/i] SEC jobs aside from Kentucky, the thing that strikes me reading all th...

re: Sounds like Rick Barnes is stepping down in Austin. - wm72
[quote]Barnes was given 17 years. He made one Final Four. [/quote] I can see Texas parting ways but I wonder if they have a clear target already in view that would be a clear upgrade. One can just as easily say Barnes [i]overachieved[/i] in recruiting as that he underachieved in the tourney ...

re: biggest surprise of EURO 16 qualifying so far? - wm72
I'd say Slovakia having the best start of anyone considering their 15 points include 3 against Spain already in pocket. Also: 1 Israel 2 Wales 3 Cyprus 4 Belgium 5 Bosnia looks a bit odd even if they've only played 3-4 matches. ...

re: UTenn is a better hoops job than Bama - wm72
That's fair. Kind of what I was getting at in my post. After Kentucky there's just not any advantages or disadvantages significant enough to where attracting a good coach doesn't mainly come down to paycheck and how comfortable he is with the AD support. ...

re: UTenn is a better hoops job than Bama - wm72
Tennessee has excellent basketball support and I'd certainly agree that it is a bit better job than Alabama. However, what the numerous "rank the program threads" here make clear above all else is that there's really not that much difference in any of the programs after Kentucky. It mainly...

[quote]Holy shite I didn't realize Asia had that type of marketing pull. At least compared to the US. Those graphs are startling.[/quote] Yeah, it really is. I was really surprised when seeing the huge recent Serie A TV deal broken down. Just like for the EPL, the new deals for Thailand, ...

[quote]Why the hell does Pearson's name keep coming up? Better yet, Stansbury's? If we give it to Pearson, we might as well give it to Pettway. I'd at least feel good about giving the kid a break.

[quote]I agree with the Prohm part but not Crean. Do I think he'd be a homerun hire? No. But I think it's laughable to call it a terrible hire. [/quote] The hire would seemingly continue in the theme of just about everything from the past decade: average to maybe ever so slightly above. ...

re: Alabama Basketball At A Cross Road - wm72
Crean wouldn't be my first choice but I don't think it would be a bad hire either since the program under Grant has usually only been about one player away from the level that would be enough for most fans: getting a NCAA bid most seasons and being excited about a legit Top25 team every few seaso...
