  1. https://www.cbssports.com/college-basketball/news/candid-coaches-which-school-is-the-most-underrated-job-in-college-basketball/ Most of the results are really close. Zags at #1 then Sweatervests #2 and a bunch more really close. Results are all over the place as everyone probably has a different definition of what's an under rated job. I'd focus on a school that doesn't get big publicity but has a good fanbase, good support and a natural recruiting area. I think a WKU is a good under rated job.
  2. In the break down, private jets account for a lot of the expense.
  3. https://watchstadium.com/news/how-much-is-your-school-spending-on-college-basketball-recruiting-07-29-2019/amp/ Article examines public records of spending on basketball recruiting and compares it to results. Key findings "Of the seven schools that spent at least $500,000 on recruiting during the last fiscal year — Indiana, Illinois, Kentucky, Texas, Kansas, Ohio State and LSU — six enrolled a top-25 recruiting class in 2018." "However, for every school that spent at least $500,000 on recruiting for a top-25 recruiting class, there are almost twice as many examples among the schools examined that spent less than $300,000 for a similarly rated class." The article then examines other factors such as recent poll rankings.
  4. I know this is a subjective question, but there's not going to be a rivalry with a team outside the mid-west. Also rivalries usually have some history. My top pick would be Xavier Second, Butler Then Creighton, Memphis, DePaul
  5. Bring back Richtorscale Or maybe I heard Leon was good with ball knowledge
  6. Hmmmm interesting kid is from Denton Ryan HS powerhouse in FB just north of Ft. Worth. There's chatter of Smart to Michigan he could probably keep a good class together or maybe lure this guy back to Texas. We have an assistant opening maybe we hire this guy's lead recruiter and get him to SLU.
  7. Maybe a guy that can recruit Chicago, KC, Fond Du Lac, WI and coach FT shooting, a possible coach in waiting with Big East experience................. toot toot all aboard Diener Express!
  8. It's dead spin they post crap. We're culpable because we click the links but it's the off season and we can only project minutes so much.
  9. https://deadspin.com/look-into-the-face-of-march-madnesss-cruelest-mascot-1823690107 Couldn't they get an actual Friar? Also why? Guess I shouldn't be so hard on the new Billiken this is worse.
  10. We don't need another guard but this guy is now available. Elijah Mitrou-Long transferring from Texas, went to a Jesuit HS originally from Canada. Hit 33 of 103 3Pts. Didn't play much down the stretch in NIT. Started at Mount St. Mary's. In the future this dude's going to get so many alumni donor solicitations with all his schools. https://www.burntorangenation.com/platform/amp/basketball/2019/5/2/18527753/elijah-mitrou-long-enters-ncaa-transfer-portal-texas-longhorns-guard
