    Why would he leave his HC job at Stanford to come here?

    Why does everyone always think that Dawkins is still at Duke?

    After the last decade...yes...if a change is made there is an unbelievable amount riding on the hire. WE CAN'T WIFF.

    Time to put down the hippie lettuce...


    Chuck Lidell: I paint my toenails with pink and black polish. Problem is, I get more paint on my toes and on the carpet than on my nails. Any advice?

    I like Davis but I don't see how pollard sells hiring a coach fired from somewhere else.

    Everyone seems to be on board with BG who was fired at Kentucky. I would be completely on board with Mike Davis, he's doing a terrific job at UAB.

    And I really don't get the Billy love. Maybe it would work, who knows. I'm just against bringing in any coach who was fired. Just a tough sell right now. We need to inject winning in to this program, to me that is a coach who hasn't been fired.

    Yeah, that is one of the downside that I see to him. Also he lacks connections to the state of Iowa or the Big 12. On the flip side he has coached in the midwest (Indiana). He also doesn't have the "baggage" the Billy G has.

    I totally understand your point. But here's the counter-argument (not that I agree): they lost at two of the top all-time programs in the country - Indiana and Kentucky - where expectations are through the roof year in and year out. I mean, they might fire Crean....that tell's you the delusion that Indiana suffers. And KU had to sell their soul to Calipari to get back in the national title picture.

    I'm not really high on BG....I guess I'm not into recycling another Big 12 coach.

    Re: would you hire

    There are lots of coaches that have been fired that would be great.
    Billy is a winner on the court:
    02-03 UTEP 6-24 (3-15)
    03-04 UTEP 24-8 (13-5) NCAA 1st round
    04-05 A$M 21-10 (8-8) NIT Quarters
    05-06 A$M 22-9 (10-6) NCAA 2nd round
    06-07 A$M 27-7 (13-3) NCAA Sweet 16
    07-08 UK 18-13 (12-4) NCAA 1st round
    08-09 UK 22-14 (8-8) NIT Quarters

    He may be other things, but he injects winning
