    Better staff ISU or Iowa

    Just curious for some UN-BIASED thoughts on who everyone thinks has the better new bball staff. I noticed that Iowa just hired the former head of Nike AAU basketball camps as their final assistant which is supposed to be huge for recruiting. We have our big recruiter TJ, but lack the experience as well. Just wondering what some honest thoughts are?

    I'd wait a few weeks and ask this question. Fred hasn't announced his staff yet(or did I miss something?).

    Premature to form a fair opinon on this.

    That last assistant for Iowa was fired from the Nike position and had a dismal record as a head coach with no post season appearances and only 2 winning season out of 10.

    Wow..You would have never thought that watching the news here in Eastern Iowa.

    They drink lots of kool aid over this way. Unfortuantly it's always black and gold.

    If the recruits are really close to their grandfathers, they will probably pick Iowa.

    Sorry Bootcy but you need to check the facts a little better before ya go spitting out info. He wasn't fired from Nike, he took a better job. Sherman Dillard - LinkedIn

    Our staff isn't complete yet... plus its awfully hard to judge these guys until they have some body of work together.... and both staffs face major rebuilding projects left to them by the last (failed) regimes.

    Good thing he isn't coming to Iowa as the head coach then isn't it?

    Regardless of how good he was as a head coach the guy has a ton of connections on the AAU circuit and that is what really matters in college basketball. He was in charge of bringing in the top high school talent in the nation to skills camps hosted by Kobe Bryant, Steve Nash, Vince Carter, and LeBron James, so he does have the connections to AAU coaches around the country. Personally I think this is a better hire than Barta getting McCaffery just because of who Dillard knows and his connections.

    So why is age of a coaching staff a factor? It hasn't stopped kids to come and play for Norm or Wally in football.

    Really?? Using LinkedIn as a reference?

    So is the guy going to say he got fired when he hands out his resume?? It's basically the same thing.

    Re: Better staff ISU or Iowa

    He left Nike to be an independant contractor for 3 months?? Looks more like he was fired than just left for a better job, at least as a person that reviews job history it appears that way to me...Can't argue with the dismal record part either, 43% winning percentage and 2 winning seasons. Wonder why he didn't include that on his linkedin profile.

    I've tried looking for why he left Nike, can't find it but I would guess if he were fired that somebody would be able to find it online somewhere. Also I dont think he was brought on because he was a winning coach, if that were the case he probably wouldnt have taken a job at Iowa as the 3rd assistant coach ha. The only reason he was probably brought on was because of his aau connections at nike and his recruiting ability. Regardless this topic wasn't a question of simply this assistant, but overall who's in better shape, us or Iowa?
