    I heard awhile back that they are looking at Tim Miles too.

    I bet Nebraska makes a run at CSU's Tim Miles.

    Yeah - Altman won't go back to Nebraska from Oregon - that would be nuts

    Think I started that rumor about Miles

    With Miles being a native of South Dakota and having gone to school + coached in the Dakotas and Colorado, it would seem like a good regional option for Nebraska.

    Nebraska is going to be much more appealing than usual with this hire with their 16,000 seat arena on the way

    Miles would be a very solid hire by the fuskers. Therefore, I hope they look elsewhere. Altman wouldn't take the pay cut.

    That would be a good fit. He seems young for that job, but dude can coach. I'm much more impressed with what he accomplished this year than with his tourney run last year.

    Smart worked with Illinois' relatively new AD at Akron, so they already have a relationship.

    Mike Thomas. Know him from his days at UVA. Good guy, he'll get Illinois athletics on the right track.

    Miles will hold out a couple years for the Minnesota job to come open before he seriously considers leaving CSU.

    Old news but for anyone who didn't hear SMU hired Larry Brown (ya that Larry Brown). They also hired Illinois State coach Tim Jankovich to be their coach in waiting and made him the highest paid assistant in college basketball. Looks like they're serious about competing in the Big East.
