ttun basketball (everybody laugh!)

    I wonder if this guy knows that this is the reason Chicago’s President, Robert Hutchins, pulled them from the Big Ten, Michigan corruption in football recruiting.

    Hutchins was addressing the Detroit Chamber of Commerce in October of 1939, two weeks after Michigan had destroyed the Maroons 85 to zip. His comments went something along the lines of, "Two weeks ago a team many of you helped recruit to Michigan defeated my school in a contest in which the winning team used men who were basically professional athletes..." Everyone was sure it was sour grapes and that it would lead to the end of Chicago as a major university. While many of Hutchins' ideas were considered a bit too far out - a curriculum based entirely on the great books - his leadership is part of the foundation that led to Chicago becoming one of the premier schools in the US with an academic record that outstrips Ann Arbor and an endowment fund of more than 4 billion.

    Who do you think should they hire, to help themselves the most? It is a less than optimal time to search for a new coach for sure.

    i don't know whom they should hire because i don't know whom they can hire, but i think anyone worse than yaklich would be a (big) mistake. he's the standard. i'd consider moser to be a worse hire. this is assuming that yaklich is a half-decent recruiter.

    one thing is for sure: porter moser is a very hard sell to the skunkbear fanbase, especially if moser doesn't retain yaklich. program interest would plummet.

    moreover, there is little reason to think that yaklich would pass on the head coaching job. beilein may want to bring him along, but the cavs won't come close to matching yaklich's salary as head coach of ttun. and i have to imagine that being the head coach of ttun would be a much bigger coup for yaklich than being an nba assistant.

    a sensible recruiting search would be chasing after dreams like donovan and beard before promoting yaklich.

    Who could've imagined that, in a year we lose Urban fucking Meyer as our head coach, Ohio State still gets the last laugh against SCUM. My goodness their suffering will never get old. Those sad fan comments could double as a blood transfusion because they're giving me LIFE.

    If I were their AD, Dana Altman, Buzz Williams and Bruce Weber would be near the top of my list. They aren't getting Beard; Donovan may not be as big a pipe dream as some might think.

    yeah, I think Donovan is a possibility for them. a very expensive possibility, but at least there'd be no buyout to deal with.

    So... I have zero evidence or even hints other than my own brain. But I was thinking why would he do that? Is the money that different? The cavs arent winning anything in the near future.

    What if he knows his name is attached to the cheating scandal and he just bailed before it leaked?

    Beilein has run a clean program (so far as we know, or as clean as a college coach can be). While I'll never "like" a scUM coach, he does seem like a decent man. The popular theory is that he was just fed up with the corruption of the college game.

    CBS College Basketball podcast had an interesting perspective on Beilein's decision. The idea is that coaching high school and NBA is pure basketball; coaching college has more to do with dealing with street agents, runners, boosters, professors, PR and other crap.

    I’d seriously question the cleanliness of high school football and basketball. Transfers to coaches and teams are hardly innocent - thinking right now of. St. X kid who will suit up for Princeton so that he can graduate in January - and that’s peanuts compared to what goes on with AAU ball.

    Why would Beard leave TTU to go to UM? Dude just got a fat contract, I believe he is coaching relatively close to home, and his program is on fire right now.

    other than being good for the kid and bad for the institution-what's wrong with that?

    scUM pipe dream. Up there with Billy Donovan and Jay Wright. (though maybe not as big as a laugh as those 2, still a pipe dream)
