Welcome Coach Miller

Recommended Posts

DeCourcy's article hits it on the head for why we DON'T NEED Alford.  The last couple paragraphs

Since 1980, 37 NCAA championships have been decided; only five were won by coaches working at their alma maters. Which means 86.5 percent of championship coaches arrived with little or no connection to the college hiring them.

It would be an entirely different college basketball world if John Calipari were the coach at Clarion, Mike Krzyzewski were coaching Army and Beilein worked his offensive magic at Wheeling College. This is rather an absurd scenario, of course, but that is the logical extension of hiring a head basketball coach primarily because of where he attended college.

But Wheeling would have a hell of a team.

I'm convinced everything that transpired this morning was an effort to quiet the "rumors" that are floating regarding BD.

Be patient friends.  Where there is smoke...

The noise wouldn't have gotten this loud if true. Also, he would've said that when asked about returning to college.

I refuse to believe that Glass is hitching his wagon to Alford and this makes sense if you consider how everything went down this morning.

I think this plays a large role in what we are now hearing.  I.M.O. BD is trying to keep his team united and make a postseason run (as any coach would be doing).  He is still under contract with OKC and would not anything disrupting the locker room currently.

Maybe I'm over-optimistic, but I'd rather be that then trying to justify the alternative.

There's also a lot of noise that suggests that he's happy where he is.

Wow.  Marshall stands out in that list.  Too bad his wife stood out Sunday.  

Yeah, that is the only instance of weird personality stuff that people don't want anymore with their coach. Hyperbole is such a fun way to argue a point, why try to represent what other people say when you can make it look like their argument is dumb.

No offense, but you guys are making these narratives up.

Yes, I left out I.M.O.  The post has been edited.

I did not intend in any way to lead on that I have sources confirming my beliefs.

Interesting,.. where do Alford, Bennett and (for reference sake) Crean stand?

IU would probably only want the noise level down if they are worried it will affect the deal.  Once it is signed they wouldn't care or might even want a little more noise because that could lead to Thunder telling Donovan to take a hike before the playoffs.
