Ughh... They probably won't start a coaching search now, but I expect they'll make a phone call to CU to want to talk to Tad.
kevin ollie promoted
1 year contract they are going to get murdered in the Big East this year. When tad takes us to the sweet 16 this year. UConn WILL be calling.
here is a fun game called would you rather.
Would you rather win the PAC:12 tourney again and only one game in the NCAA tourney
Would you rather lose the PAC:12 tourney, but make the big dance and go to the sweet sixteen
I think the second. But I think I am going to go to the PAC-12 tourney IN VEGAS this year so maybe the first. It is close for me.
Tourney run gets you more national attention, winning the PAC 12 again and beating Arizona, Cal or UCLA probably helps recruiting on the West Coast more. It's close for me.
Sweet Sixteen all the way. If CU wins or loses in the conference tourney, it doesn't make as big an impact in the greater world of NCAA bball as does a S16 appearance. The media and coaches start calling those teams "Cinderellas" and "Giant Killers" because you probably had to run a gauntlet of high profile teams to get there (especially if you lost your conference tourney).
I would rather win the PAC 12 tourney again. Only one team in the country does that.
Good. I don't like Calhoun. Glad I don't have to hear him speak anymore.
Kind of a dick.
Won't miss him.
Honestly doubt it. Bet they focus in the East.
his buyout isn't big and he can easily double his salary this was from March of this year
We´re talking about 2013 here as we assume Ollie is just a stop-gap, right?
They have a post-season ban this year, so they will do a real coaching search next year. They don't have anything to play for this year.
Kinda sad for Ollie, he's in a no-win situation.
From my friend who worked at a college in athletics in the Big East... The Biggest Dick in all of college basketball. Probably a cheater. He did win, but he only gets positive spin because UConn is in tight with ESPN. Just a horrible horrible person.
Possibility, but his loyalty to VCU can't be underestimated.
Yes when I think of coaches in the hall of fame of slime balls, it's him, petino, calipari, and gillispie.
Speaking of Pitino... he is a New Yorker, hmmm would he dare bolt another Kentucky school and head to Uconn?
Am I the only one that thinks UConn is going to have a hard time getting a decent coach? They're in sanction hell, they're in a brutal conference and Storrs isn't exactly the easiest place to recruit kids to come to. With Calhoun gone, I'm curious to see if they head towards the middle of the pack now.
It could be a rocky transition, but there is a lot of support up there for UConn hoops.
I would at all be surprised to see that happen especially now with the current state of the Big East.
The safe money is on UConn falling back into the middle of the pack.
Why is Kentucky so good? How about Syracuse? Is it their proximity to recruits?
Probably a cheater? :lol: He once said, "Yes, we broke the rule, but we didn't cheat."
You can somewhat argue location for Syracuse (close enough to NYC), but I'm not sure I put UConn in the same historical grouping with Syracuse or Kentucky.
And honestly, when Boeheim steps down, depending on the hire, Syracuse could drop too.
Agree that Syracuse isn't immune from falling into the middle of the pack if they aren't careful with Boeheim's replacement. ****, they might even get a good replacement and be middle of the pack in the ACC. It is going to be a bloodbath.
