    it's funny that Steve Alford is putting togeather a better 2007 class at New Mexico than he did at Iowa. Darrington Hobson commited to NM yesterday.

    Here is his profile

    Almost every single recruit was practically wearing black and gold a few months ago. Now all of a sudden they cant wait to play in the Pit, which would also be a good name for Carver Hawkeye Arena.

    You're sure these guys are as good as they keep telling you? Why hasn't someone signed them before now? I think it is interesting to note that every recruit Stevie has added is following an assistant coach that he has brought in. That only works one time, and then you either have to fire the assistant or try another tactic. Meanwhile, down in Iowa City, the new coach told his Butler recruits to honor their commitment to Butler, just as GMcD told his UNI recruits when he came to Ames. It's going to be a lot harder to hate the Hawkeyes with Lickliter and Ferenz on board.

    I agree. My hope is that the fear that came about when McDermott came aboard concerning not being able to recruit comes true with Lickliter. He seems to be a good coach, but only has 6 years HC experience and took over Matta's recruits, right?

    I'm sure the hawk fans will take care of that.

    Hobson is an academic risk from what I understand and may not be fully qualified.
    There's a reason he has only 1 legitimate offer in Okie State and then Baylor and Pepperdine.

    It doesn't matter if Alford has the best recruits in the country, he'll still fail. That's what bad coaches do.

    I don't think it'll be too long before Craig Neal gets New Mexico in some hot water. He drips slimeball.

    Alford will quit attracting the top rate recruits, once they figure out he will be "de-developing" them. Steve Alford: Every player he's ever coached has been a worse player after having played for him.
