    Just messing with you. Bruce is so likeable when you know him, but it's undeniable that he's got some straw hat, plaid jacket salesmanship to him.

    I just threw up in my mouth a bit. Such an arrogant pr*ck.

    I don't know. I kind of like Pitino groveling and putting his name out there for these various jobs. He looks ridiculous and desperate. All while coaching in that hotbed of basketball, and cradle of coaching, Greece.

    Anyone would trade Cincinnati for SoCal. Call Jarron Cumberland LJ!

    Cronin is a good coach, but seems like a bad fit for UCLA. He seems to be a rough and tumble type coach, and I don't know if that will go over as well with west coast and LA recruits. I think they would've been better off going with a coach with some flash a la, going all in on someone like Bruce Pearl. Cronin seems to be more of a meat and potatoes type coach with little Hollywood pizzazz. Just my opinion though. Time will tell.

    Being in Cinci, watching fair amount of their games, I would concur.

    Brannen is a Horizon League star. Interesting.

    Cincinnati should try and get Keith Dambrot if he is interested.

    Could well be true. His approach is more like Ben Howland (gruff and dour) than a charismatic Hollywood personality. Despite the fact that Howland was the last good X's & O's coach UCLA had, the body rejected the organ. I hope Mick has better luck there.

    Let me tell you, his problem was much, much more than being “gruff and dour”. He was lucky insiders didn’t spill. He made Bobby Knight look like a social worker.

    It all comes down to winning. If he wins, everything will be fine. If he doesn't win up to UCLA standards (which will be very difficult because they have delusional expectations), the Westwood insiders will start spilling because that will hasten his exit. LA is a lot more cutthroat than Cincinnati. I doubt Cronin is oblivious to that, but, as is true with most successful and driven people, my guess is he overestimates his ability to overcome it.

    I'd be up for anyone who could bring back the ejections & knife fights to the X-UC series. Good times.

    For the record, I was speaking about Howland, not Cronin.

    You're going to be waiting a long time for that Southern District of NY apology Ricky.

    Once you get in the coaching circuit they shovel coaches around.

    Hearing some rumors about Tyler Lewis joining Schrage's staff at Elon. He was in the audience for the introductory "press conference" earlier this week. Spent last season as the video coordinator at East Carolina.

    Seems like a good hire for Nevada, tbh.
