Paul Lusk (successor to Cuonzo) out at Missouri State after 7 years.

Of course, Mr. Martin has moved to Missouri via Tenessee and Cal during that time.

If Bama doesnt make tourney... Avery Johnson seat may be feeling warm too. They have talent enough to be in top 10, but have lost 5 in a row I think.

Not sure what secret sauce is for teams with Chemistry, but I think Jay Wright is closest to having the sauce recipe.

Iíve watched Alabama play a couple of times. They donít pass the eye test. Avery is not a good coach.

Agreed, his game is more suited for NBA players anyway. His talent there is way above board also. Wish we had some of their athletes with the strategy BU uses.

Exactly my thoughts watching. IF BU could have his athletes...

Whoa, this is getting interesting. Tubby might have out stayed his welcome. I do think he is a serviceable coach but man, I cant imagine him moving onto another team if the fire him.

Tubby is a 66 year old millionaire. He'll be fine without another team.

Would Memphis really cough up the 9.75 million dollar buy out? Plus they paid the near million dollar buy out at Texas Tech. He has only been there 2 seasons now correct?

Becky Hammon being considered for the CSU job? An alum with a retired jersey. Great pro basketball career. Solid NBA coaching experience under a Hall of Fame coach. What's not to like?

I think she'd be a great coach. I would wonder how she would do recruiting. I could see her running up against AAU coaches and fathers that wouldn't give her much respect. On the other hand, I could see mothers of players bonding with her and putting trust in her to take care of their boys.

She has the playing and coaching pedigree, though.

New Possible Transfer Antigua?

While we are all speaking about potential transfers, newcomers, where our players may or may not end up or if they stay or go...not seen this brought to light before now? OA on the move?

https://wildcatbluenation.com/2018/0...-the-hot-seat/

Honestly hadn't even thought a possibility after 1 year, but I guess if a HC can do it and players are willing why not an assistant possibly?

Consider the pot stirred, happy typing.

That didn't last long.

But then, when you lose 19 straight games, this happens.

Sean Miller is a Pitt grad, right?

Always a possibility, but does OA want to go back down that road again?

Its a tough sell. Stallings basically hasn't recruited for 2 years (no one signed higher than #130, except a decent juco guy) and they graduate 4 guys. On top of what im gonna guess is a mass exodus of the guys they have left. In the ACC, in a recruiting territory that is being taken over.

They are a laughing stock.



They are up a creek. And regretting the grass-is-greener firing/letting Jamie Dixon walk.

It's kind of like moving back home and living with your parents, don't you think?

If living with parents brings boatloads of success and money, doesnít seem like the hardest well.

I didn't think Stallings was a great hire, but I never expected it to go that poorly.

To each his own. I'm sure he's making pretty good coin here at Illinois. If he can recruit well here at Illinois, I think that's more impressive and a bigger challenge.

On the other hand, he may enjoy working for Calipari.
