    I don't want any of these up and comers because, that is what we have now in csp...I want an "Established Head Coach"...like when we hired Johnny Orr away from Michigan.....I want a mbb team that wins conference championships and beats KU every year at both venues!!

    So you want something that literally hasn't been done consistently? That's very wishful thinking.

    First, your criteria is impossible and beyond unrealistic.

    Second, we got Johnny because he was paid **** money and he wasn't appreciated at Michigan. Now mid major coaches are paid really good money and there are no established head coaches that fit that bill.

    It's been 40 ******* years since we hired Johnny. That scenario will NEVER happen again.

    That has never legitimately been done consistently in our entire history.

    I thought about that when I read that he and the Cavs have talked about parting ways before the end of the All Star break. If you're looking for credibility and a proven track record he'd be a home run hire. I don't hold it against him for failing so hard in Cleveland. Yeah, it's been a disaster but that franchise is an unholy mess anyway.

    Unfortunately Pollard doesn’t appear to be capable of hiring a p5 coach with experience.

    He is capable of it. Whether he wants to or not is the question.

    The only reason I give pause to Beilein is age. At 67, he's not much of a flight risk to a blue blood or anything, but you have to assume you're looking for another coach in 4 years or so regardless of his performance. Can't go forever.

    Piling on but the last thing is something that happened twice 20 years ago.

    I'd just go with having a loss at Hilton be a rarity and winning a few road conference games.

    It’s not entirely far fetched. I’ll give you the Kansas part. All it takes is a rift between the administration and the coach, coaches pick up camp and leave. How do you explain Frank Martin leaving Kansas State for South Carolina, Oliver Purnell to DePaul, Mike Anderson leaving Columbia for Fayetteville?

    Maybe Roy Williams will be ready for a change if we want him. I wonder how he would do recruiting Iowa kids to an Iowa school?

    He doesn’t want to spend the money. Bad for the bottom line.
