This coaching search will be fascinating. With football, I didn't care if we got a guy with a reputation as a great recruiter. I just wanted someone who will instill discipline in his team, because I got so tired of watching Zook-coached teams shoot themselves in the foot game after game. But with basketball, the new coach must be able to recruit Chicago well. Weber dug himself a huge hole by recruiting poorly his first few/several years at Illinois. By the time he got things turned around, we were already mediocre.
