    So much for making a splash hire for the conference uggh. I hope he does great things, but man......I wonder what the guy in the full Mizzou outfit from head to tie at the SEC tourney thinks about this?

    Missouri is a very attractive spot for coaches.

    Give this guy two or three years and then we will see how good he is.

    He's a Missouri guy and that's apparently what they wanted. Yes he did just take a team not expected to compete all the way to the D2 title. But he is also 58 and a career assistant until this recent D2 job. I'm all for hiring the guy with a background at your school, as long as that isn't the top selling point. We'll see.

    I am sure he is a great guy, but how do you name your son Kim.

    This was a reach. It may work, but it was a reach hire. And mizzou shouldn't have to reach.

    I don't get why no one wants Ben Howland.

    Others including Franz, think this is not a reach. Ryan at Wisconsin and Pearl at Tennessee proved you can find experience coaches at lower levels, but have experience in-state.

    This guy played for Norm Stewart so by all accounts he is a Missouri guy.

    After watching Haith squander the talent he inherited, I imagine the Tiger alumni are glad to have Anderson

    Pearl coached in Tennessee? I know he was at Wisconsin-Milwaukee before UT and coached at Iowa under Tom Davis.

    I guess my overall impression is, he just made it to Div 2 and he is 58? Not damning but definitely not what I call an "up-and-comer." Getting someone like that should be more like Bill Guthridge taking over as a loyal assistant over the years from a legacy coach. Leaving your coach and landing in Central Missouri is kind of a timid track to your dream job.

    Maybe they thought they were getting Mike Anderson's sister.

    I am sure the are differing opinions.
    I think pulling a guy with no D1 head-coaching experience is a reach for a school like Mizzou. That doesn't mean he will not be an excellent coach. We will see.
    But I think they reached.
