    Re: Jim Calhoun at UCONN to retire.

    Kevin Ollie is a solid coach and they will get back on top pretty quickly in my opinion. Ollie can recruit.


    Nobody but HB knows for sure. You pretty much know nothing....like Knownothing would like to say.

    Re: Jim Calhoun at UCONN to retire.

    Arent they on probation next year anyway and unable to go to the tourney? Seems like a good time to step down.

    Re: UConn's Jim Calhoun to retire - Goes out with lose to Hoiberg

    I can't see that as a reason for a "forced" retirement...I mean come on he won the tourney the year before. It must be on his own accord.


    Good times on Hawkeyenation.com after the 2010 Wisconsin Game!

    Re: Jim Calhoun at UCONN to retire.

    Academic probation coming... aren't they also being looked at by the NCAA for other violations? Their conference is also in decline

    Re: Jim Calhoun at UCONN to retire.

    I'd have to think that UCONN will suffer some sort of drop off with the change of regime, but I would assume it would be to NCAA qualifier status from Final Four/Elite 8 regular. What the new coach does in the first few years will be telling.
