    Another thing to consider

    We don't want to be looking for a new basketball coach the same time as the Hawkeyes are. Lickliter will likely be gone after next season. If we are going to make a move we absolutely need to do it now and not wait until after next year.

    Because some of the candidates might be the same for both schools. The Hawks have a lot deeper pockets.

    I know Iowa didn't have an opening when we did last time, but IMO we pushed WM out so we could get McD before Iowa did. Why do we care what Iowa does in basketball? I care a lot more about football. Basketball is one game out of 30 a year that has no bearing nationally. We only interviewed two? candidates for the job because we were in a hurry rather than pursuing other options. Just make the best decision and don't worry about Iowa. For all we know TL might get another year.

    Iowa may have a lot more money to spend, but money doesn't buy victories. Look at the current coach. He makes over a million a year and will probably be gone next year. To me it comes down to which AD has the best ability to bring Coaching talent.
