"I love it that Ivy League coaches are coming to our camp and Big Ten coaches are coming to our camp. South Florida is coming. We've got about 70 schools that are coming to our camp."
ESPN launched a series today where they will count down the 50 men's hoops coaches based on the following question:
"Who is doing the best job right now?"
Numbers 50-26 are listed today and they will count down the rest over the next 5 weeks. Using the very specific criteria above, I think Beilein will slot in somewhere around the middle of the top 10, given his success at the B1G level, having the most tournament wins of any NCAA program the past 2 years, back to back B1G POY's and so on. He is clearly the best coach in the nation, but figure he will get bumped a bit for not yet winning a national title and ESPN's anti-Michigan bias, so I will guess he is ranked 6th. Your thoughts/guesses?
The SEC recently modified their requirement that a grad transfer student apply for a waiver in order to play right away. Now, as long as the athlete meets academic requirements, he can skip the waiver process. But the UF president doesn't like it and took the opportunity to criticize Horford's move:
and is considering renaming the team...
... or maybe not ???
Clippy says "Go Clippers!"
All for just $2 Billion. $2 Billion???
The sweet-shooting 6'3" two guard chose to take Wisconsin up on its offer of a 2015 scholarship. He recently made an unofficial visit Michigan but apparently did not receive an offer. He'll probably be a nice player at some point, but the Michigan coaches seemed to see him as a back-up plan to Eron Harris (who, per Raoul's post below, is visiting Michigan June 6-7) and Jalen Coleman.
Now he can start working on sliding under jump shooters, grabbing opposing players, flopping, and whining like a stuck pig anytime a call goes against him. Because that's the Badger Way.*
*I wish the kid luck, but it's important to criticize Wisconsin basketball whenever you can.
Mitch looks petty good in this video. He is knocking down 3s at a high percentage.
