    Let's look at the history of former NBA players hired as college coaches. Fred Hoiberg was a hit, and Penny Hardaway seems to be off to a great start, but most of the other guys that I know of were misses to an extent, or the jury is still out. Patrick Ewing is doing OK so far, but it is still really early in his tenure. Dan Majerle seems to be doing pretty well. But there has been a lot of losing from others including Chris Mullin, Kevin Ollie, Isiah Thomas, Clyde Drexler, Reggie Theus, Mark Price, Mike Dunleavy Sr, Danny Manning, Avery Johnson, Terry Porter, Donyell Marshall, and Damon Stoudamire. A lot of miserable failures on that list, a lot more failures than successes.

    Funny, Stadium's Jeff Goodman just posted a story about Howard and rehashed a lot of the same coaches that I listed there.

    Edit: one interesting note is that Hoiberg, the man whose success stands out above the crowd, has eschewed the normal high school recruiting process in favor of a heavy transfer-oriented recruiting strategy. Remembering Chris Jent's disdain for recruiting is further evidence that many of these former NBA guys and/or their staffs don't do a very good job with the high school scouting and recruiting grind.

    So, I was curious by whatever that cockgobbler was talking about; "(MSU Game stuff)" as he said.

    So, yeah, the "edge" was apparently when Sparty was doing their traditional pregame walk off two hours prior to kick..... and a couple of scUM fucksticks stayed on the field, and in Sparty's way... then, Devin Bush went to the Sparty logo and kicked his feet so as to deface the logo.... Shades of "Spike" Bolden, I suppose...

    Anyway, the game was 7 to 7 until about 2 to go in the 3rd, with scUM scoring another with about 10 to go in the game, beating an eventual 7-6 Sparty 21-7. As you may recall, scUM would go on to lose to Ohio State 62-39 before having several players sit out their bowl game (a 15-41 loss to Gator), notably including starting RB Karen Higdon who thought he was protecting his draft status (Narrator: Higdon would not be drafted). Which is to say, the "edge" appears to involve quitting on your teammates.

    DFBIA indeed.

    You know, as I think about it, the desire for the "Fab Five to be back" is about as perfect a Michigan Man thing that we could have (never mind, of course, that Howard was but 1 of 5 members of that bought and paid for class, and not himself the entire fab five. Equally stupid as to where I'm going, but not the point I am actually driving towards). Trying to relive the "glory days" where those days produced exactly zero championships. Just like the guy who first uttered the words "Michigan Man" himself. Precisely ZERO championships.

    Well I will give them credit for this; they have at least moved to reliving the 1990's instead of the 1890's.

    It's progress.

    I think Luke Yaklich ends up at Texas with Shaka Smart.

    Out #2. And I don’t think he’s switching the former commits back this late in the game- 3 outs. Now it’s up to Juwanna’s unknown recruiting and coaching chops...

    5 years and $2.0m to $2.5m per is certainly on the low end of contracts for a program with the size, wealth, and stature of ttun. which perhaps tells me a couple things: 1) ttun knows howard going to the nba after a few years is a real threat and/or 2) howard is taking a slight pay cut to boost pay packages for yaklich and/or washington. retaining at least one of those two has to be a priority for both howard and the program.

    on the other, howard has never been a head coach at any level and has no college coaching experience, so he doesn't warrant more pay like hoiberg, buzz, or cronin. oats to bama is the closest comparison at just under $2.5 for 5 years.

    that's challenge #1 for howard. like yaklich for ttun, juwanna was the heat's defensive coordinator. that's a lot of overlap. that being stated, no matter the head coach's expertise, you'd assume that the coach would still have a defensive coordinator and an offensive coordinator.
