some updates, there are reports that unlv has shown interest in tyler lamb.
so that would be mike moser, chace stanback, and now tyler lamb. i bet unlv salivates every time we get a top recruiting class.
really hope the best for him. my older brother is on the winning side of a battle with obesity, it's not easy and causes a lot of emotional distress. hope josh can do it, because he'll be rewarded with millions in the nba if he does.
btw we're not playing bad as of late. our defense has steadily improved. larry drew and travis are playing great imo. bazz had his first really bad game vs utah, but till then he's been great. but my favorites are adams and anderson really hope they stay multiple years (andersons dad hinted at him wanting his son to stay at least two years). but of course now that i've acknowledged it we'll lose tomorrow at Colorado.
Howland fired? I guess there has to be consequences for that last few years
Who do you hire?
Shaka, Stevens, Donovan is apparently the short list. I think Stevens and Donovan have nothing more than "I'll listen" interest. And honestly I can see Stevens being a disaster at a big time program with his style, it's not conducive to landing top tier recruits whatsoever.
He's an an alum and he's The Mayor for a reason, but I think they should chase Fred Hoiberg.
Donovan as Billy Donovan? That would be hard to stomach. Personally though I only see him leaving Florida to go to the NBA. Sure were not known as a basketball school but were still a damn good one.
Yeah, it's not like UF's a mid-major or something, he's made that program a top 15 type job. Only way he leaves is if he gets offered a TON of money, like 4+ mil a year on an 8 year contract or something. But when you're UCLA you can set your sights that high I suppose, good on them for having high standards. Not gonna happen, but still.
Seriously though, UCLA needs to go after Hoiberg. They'd own everything west of the Missippi with him.
