    Andy Katz wrote a pretty spot-on piece, imo, on the Buffs basketball program and Coach Bzdelik.

    "This school has been through some bad situations," Bzdelik said Thursday as he prepared for a team workout. "The football program has gone through some things. We had to build back up the academic integrity, the APR, the competitive spirit. We had to create a culture that would be rock-solid."

    I don't believe it's as important, as Katz seems to think, that Bzdelik stays long-term. What I believe is important is that he wins this year, the players stay in the program, the team GPA continues to improve with no ineligibilities or off-court issues, and we break ground on the practice facility. If all that happens, I firmly believe the foundation is strong and the future is bright. A guy like Dunlap could come into that situation and run with it if Bzdelik then left for the NBA.

    after the fact, i don't like that other coaches approached Higgins. a Higgins t-fer would have been quite a blow.

    It's actually tampering and a pretty major NCAA violation. The NCAA really needs to clean up some things in MBB. So much of what goes on with AAU teams, prep coaches and agents, etc. has created a culture of cheating that's been around for a long time but only seems to be getting worse.
