    I'm in. Haven't played in years, but it looks like you needed another for even numbers. Looking forward to it!

  3. Not directing this at you personally, but I see this take everywhere. 1. Davis took those players farther than Knight himself ever did. There is a lot to be said for letting players play and grow in confidence. 2. Davis recruited the hell out of those guys, especially Newton and Moye among others. They were just as much his guys as Knight’s, maybe moreso. I encourage anyone who hasn’t yet to listen to A.J. Guyton’s interview with him. Those players loved Mike Davis. *end rant

    Same here, but getting on a plane tomorrow. First beer? Noonish.

    I'm not sure your odds change much if you remove Drew, Beard, and Oats.

    Musselman would crush it in Bloomington. He’s got the personality to match the size of the job.

    Candidate Thread: Nate Oats (Alabama)

    He would owe Alabama $12M if he left this year. Not happening.

    Candidate Thread: Eric Musselman (Arkansas)

    Yeah, I've looked into him a bit. If Dolson is serious about "modernizing the brand," a guy like Musselman or Oats would be good candidates. I know Oats has a big buyout, but I wonder about the language in that contract. Edit: Nevermind, just looked up his MoU. He's on the hook for $12M if he leaves.

    Well, I'm a free agent I guess. Sell me on Musselman.

    Ooooook who’s your # 2?

    Gonna set my sights on Beilein so I won't be disappointed.

    Candidate Thread: Brad Stevens (Boston Celtics)

    I would say the timing is definitely not perfect, but it probably never gets any better. It's a "now or never" situation, which sucks for Stevens because he's in the middle of a season. Logically, if he truly is listening and considering, and IU has put up the money being rumored, then it would seem he'll be on the sideline in SSAH next year.

    I have a hard time believing that this could take place and NO ONE heard or saw a thing. That doesn't mean it didn't happen, but it strains credulity.

    Welcome Coach Miller

    He could- on his way to the presser. He's not going to interview in Bloomington. Indianapolis? Atlanta? OKC? Sure. If he comes to Bloomington, it's because he's taking the job.

    Welcome Coach Miller

    Certainly doesn't pass the smell test. If he's in Bloomington, he's there for an announcement. There is no way in hell that he flies in just to interview. The proof's in the pudding- either there is a press conference announcement today, or the rumor mongerers are full of s**t. I'm guessing the latter.
