    This kind of mention is highly speculative, but, maybe of greater interest because of coinciding with the Army football game. An article reporting (alleging) the firing of the Army basketball coach includes the statement: "Other reports of possible candidates mentioned Iowa State assistant Daniyal Robinson..." I don't know Robinson's role with the Cyclones - I'd hoped he would recruit the Chicago area - he's on somebody's radar.

    The article mentioned Fred Quartelbaum too. He was an assistant a few years back at ISU

    Initial thought... recruiting Chicago to Army would be tough.

    Second thought... recruting anywhere to Army would be tough.

    I dont see many Chicago kids or anyone for that matter that wants to play pro ball to have to go serve a couple years overseas after they spend 4 years in college. Not the nearly the same as when Knight or K were there.

    A lot of these early candidate lists include coaches whose own agents are floating their names out there. I would guess that Robinson has aspirations of being a head coach someday and his agent probably floated his name out there early on this one. I really hope we can keep Daniyal for at least a couple of more years. He is an incredible recruiter.

    Dendy, as well as strong consideration from Randle, among other Chicago area players. I'd say that's pretty good for 1 year on the job and coming from a smaller program.

    Yes. If he makes a career move, he should go somewhere where he can use his strength as a recruiter to best advantage.

    Yea I imagine the academic standards would really limit player selection.

    That and the commitment after graduation. Is it 4 years?

    We really need to keep him around at least for another year to wrap up some of his recruits for us.
