    Re: Pitino to Minnesota....

    He's 30. And his dad is famous. He went 11-9 in his only year as a head coach. In the Sun Belt Conference.
    Minnesota is doomed.

    Saying Minnesota got Pitino (Richard) is like a team saying we won the Final 4 (NIT).

    I wonder if he was even in the top 10 on their want list.

    I stopped over to gopherhole and actually most of the fans are pretty excited. 30 year old with some name reconition who was an assistant at Louisville and has a little head coaching experience. It is an obvious huge risk but then again wasn't Fred a big one two 3 years ago? it paid off handsomely. Note: Though most now MN fans believe the Big 3 in Minnesota are leaving.

    He only needs to beat Iowa consistently to make it a quality hire in my opinion. But thats only my selfish opinion. =)

    Does anyone know what FIU's playing style is like? I would assume a lot like Louisville?

    If this is a "risky" hire, what, in your opinion constitutes a bad hire?
    Risky and bad are two different things.

    Does anyone think that Rick Pitino won't be recruiting in Minnesota now that his boy is the head coach at Minnesota?

    Re: Pitino to Minnesota....

    He will certainly have the lightest resume in the Big 10. Minn is really counting on his last name.

    There is a good talent base, he is coaching at a high-major school, and being Pitino's son will get him in the living room of recruits, so I doubt he fails miserably. That said, I would be surprised if he has them competing with OSU, IU, Michigan, MSU, Wisconsin, and Maryland.
