Steve Alford to UCLA ??
um... yeah... i was looking for an update today and i was shocked to be reading about steve alford as a candidate - but then i realized, THEY ALREADY HIRED him. way to knock it out of the park!
i was reading an article yesterday by a ucla fan stating that the media was crazy for saying UCLA is not as elite of a job as UCLA fans think - and that he wasnt sure who was delusional, himself (and the ucla fans) or the media, but that they'd find out pretty quickly. i guess that cleared things up for them.
re: minnesota, i know they are nothing to write home about - but if you offer a guy good money and the AD does a good job selling the job, you can sometimes pull a rabbit out of the hat. minnesota does have good recruiting grounds and as the only big 6 school, should be able to get ample talent. its a huge university and i think the right coach could really turn things around - especially with a forward-thinking AD who seems committed to raising the bar. pitino to UK was a rabbit out of the hat, if you ask me, not because UK was no longer an elite job or anything like that - but because of the horrible, horrible state they were in. pitino was wooed and we had to sell him, and i guess im not convinced Teague has nothing to sell over there. he has great contacts and is well respected, and that goes a long way for some people.
