    I'm really happy for him that someone out there recognizes his greatness. That credit is long overdue.

    Fran Freakout at #48 is fun, but this is more appealing.

    11. Maui Invitational Field
    The showcase event of Feast Week rarely disappoints, but this year's field is deeper than ever—in part because the tournament's Division II host Chaminade has been squeezed out of the bracket. (The Silverswords will be back in the field in 2019 and in all odd-numbered years over the life of the tourney's current contract.) Three potential top-five squads—Duke, Gonzaga and Auburn—will take the court at the Lahaina Civic Center, as will an Arizona team with no shortage of on- and off-court intrigue, a new-look Xavier plotting its next move without coach Chris Mack and an Iowa State team most expect to make noise in the Big 12. The prospect of a Blue Devils–Bulldogs championship game on the day before Thanksgiving threatens to distract from the other 11 intriguing games in store.

    Cut him some slack. That is only one year for every 6.44 Licklighter losses at Iowa. He is probably going to need another decade to clean up after Lick. Then he can start to really flower on his own.

    One could say you have to consider his "body of work"

    I think it typically takes most coaching legends about 2 or 3 rounds of graduating seniors to get things going in Division 1 basketball.

    And one of these years, that good young talent might be even better than the teams they're better than, even if they keep losing to them.

    This guy is a classic Tavern Hok disguised as a head basketball coach. By January when they are sub .500 again, the plug will be pulled on this nutjob. My marching order for Coach Prohm is to crush the hoks on their home court, and have the entire team blow a big George Niang kiss to the handful of people left in the hawkeye arena at th end of the game.

    C'mon guys, I know reading past 3 bullet points is tough for the young'uns. But #57 (with picture) is nice pub for Lindell & ISU.
