    Now that Brad Underwood has gone to the Fighting Illini, why don't you call Scott Drew from Baylor and take him off our pain-in-the-side list too. :)

    I want the Big 12 to remain strong myself.

    I can't argue with that. I think fans would feel better if someone finally dethrones KU as the Big 12 champs. Gets old.

    Let the guesses begin. Alford to Indiana, Drew to UCLA. Who would be the top mid-majors to Baylor and OSU?

    I think Kermit Davis at Middle Tennessee St deserves a chance somewhere bigger, maybe Muller at Illinois St.

    For some God forsaken reason, okie st fans want Doug Gottlieb.

    Would Gottlieb update their uniforms to include a front and back identification?

    Muller is an Ill St guy, so I wonder how easily he'll be bought

    IDK...how hard was it for ISU to get McD from UNI?

    I like the idea of dethroning them with him as coach. There's no reason for Texas to suck like they do. We don't have the budget or the recruiting base and we at least beat them once in a while.

    Texas has a top ten recruiting class and right behind them (in the end) is ISU.

    Marshall is my guess. It seems like he wants out of there, and Indiana should be able to afford him.

    I do like the conference to be as strong as possible from top to bottom. Need a stronger coach to balance out the Weber effect. As for Marshall, I still don't see him moving especially given some of the traction that the Shockers are contemplating a move to another conference. Of course, given the actions of his spouse at the last game, perhaps he wants to consider more of a party school...

    I actually think Donovan is more realistic here than many think. I am a pretty big fan of Indiana, having done my grad school work there. I would say that Donovan is the hoped for whale of the search. After that, I think Bennett, Miller or Holtman. Marshall is not as desired here as some may think. Alford is the trendy media pick right now, and could ultimately land the job. However, he is actually quite a divisive pick. Many old school fans/alums/boosters may like the connection to Knight, but many younger fans/current admin may not favor that connection. In addition to that, you have the issues with Pierce at Iowa that is turning some off of him.

    Just my thoughts as a fan that is reading the Indiana message boards.

    What? Marshall went on air and said he would love to stay in witcha state until they don't want him any longer. He is probably one of the few coaches in the nation that said they want to stay put and actually means it.
     
  20. Well, I mean 3.5 million sure helps.
