    I also think if Stricklin were in a position to hire a new coach, he is going to feel enormous pressure. Some of other traditional sports are in a decline right now, we're likely losing the All Sports trophy for the first time in consecutive years ever. Good chance we don't even finish top 10 in Directors Cup. He may feel he has no choice but to shell out the big bucks.

    How did the SEC factor the spring sports last year into the All Sports trophy calculations?

    Don't believe they awarded it for 2019-2020, think the last award was for 2018-2019 which we lost out to A&M.

    I still speak with him on occasion. He works with buddy Martin and gator bait, and is on the FaceTime show quite a bit.

    <joke>We could go back to the "good" old days when the Florida head basketball coach was an assistant football coach and hire Dwayne Davis as the wide receivers/head basketball coach.</joke>

    Makes about as much sense as some of the nonsense in this thread.

  8. Indiana is hiring Mike Woodson. UCLA was turned down by like 30 people before hiring Mick Cronin. Maybe this isn't the thread for it but the weird thing some fans do "well we better not go out and get too good of a coach or else he'll leave in a heartbeat for a blueblood" isn't based in reality.

    That's an unbelievably bad hire by IU. Yikes.

    But a beloved former IU player.

    The bet here is that he can recruit Indiana hard enough with maybe some Chicago area kids to do well given his cred.

    I doubt this administration would ever seriously consider Pitino.

    You would have a hard time convincing me that Blackshear was near a McDonald’s all-American.

    Not the way White used him. Nembhard (Jordan Brand), Lewis, and Mann (his freshman year) didn’t either but there were/are!

    Nembhard isn't that good. Even at Gonzaga. He's not an elite player in his class. Just solid.
