    I wonder if the "NBA sucks, no team play blah blah" college fans pay any attention at all to all the transfers. Because 40% of kids transferring any given year does WONDERS for team play and chemistry.

    I haven't seen anything like that on my feed. Only that they have reached out to him. Curious move if it's true.

    yeah seems like some people are getting ahead of themselves. Marquette student paper says there's no announcement, "no progress."

    Apparently he didn't like playing the 5, which is a bummer since he's 6'10 and doesn't make me think much about his ability to fit into a normal team.

    Where did you get that info from? I'd be interested to see what that list looks like.

    Edit: Even still, the Archie Miller will be able to get a better job than Marquette.

    Anyone hear about the Manhattan Coach? Apparently he took the job at South Florida, USF did some digging and found while the coach did attend the University of Kentucky he never graduated, which he claimed. Yikes.

    Today the Chicago district of the Nat'l Labor Relations Board ruled that Northwestern scholarshiped football players were employees of the university and so could organize as a union.
    Let's talk unintended consequences........ as employees (orgainized I assume) wouldn't their scholarships then be subject to Income Tax? Wouldn't the players be required to get health care insurance? Since the cost of a college education is so high (look up Northwestern) and IF the player is paying taxes on the scholarship, wouldn't he be lost as a dependent on his parents taxes?
    Perhaps they shouldn't cheer this decision too soon.
    If you get to thinkin’ you’re a person of some influence, try orderin’ somebody else’s dog around..

    It really is a comical decision. I just wrote a pretty long Econ paper on the topic, and these Northwestern players are beyond compensated. No one goes to a Northwestern football game to watch Kain Colter, maybe his mom, but that is about it.

    Going to be funny in a few years if this plays out. Guys like Jabrari Parker will have to take a pay cut to leave Duke to play in the NBA.

    Seth Davis brought up a really good point on Twitter last night. If they're going to be paid like professionals, that opens them up to being traded like professionals.
    Just because you're offended, doesn't mean you're right.” ― Ricky Gervais.

    What if someone from a school of business or management school were to ask, How did you do this? How did you get the Pacers turned around? Is there a general approach you've taken that can be summarized?

    Larry Bird: Yeah, patience.

    Cdash remember when you called BS about me liking Mike Dunlap. Pretty funny. I looked into Loyal Marymount the day he got hired about two weeks ago. A friend of mine knows their AD(and I didn't find out about his relationship until about a week ago) and they need a student manager. I feel like it is coming full circle lol, the world is a very mysterious place so ironic. I'm down to Belmont, Loyal, and INst. I really love Belmont's staff great people and basketball knowledge but the school didn't have much scholarship money. Loyal and INst both offering a lot. I don't feel the need to go 80k in debt if I don't need to.

    I'm leaning toward Loyal having two NBA teams down the street and two more pretty close would be perfect future internship opportunity. Such a good place to network.

    I have no clue, my only connection to IUPUI is that I have a buddy that went there, but you gotta think they should at least consider him. Maybe the Pro Am he runs would be a problem with the NCAA or something?

    Haha not really but I don't doubt that it happened. Isn't Loyola Marymount in the LA area? I have been by their campus before. You have some great opportunities there man. If location matters...LA!

    Calbert has been an assistant coach for one whole year at Saint Louis. If I were him, I would pass. I think he needs more time as an assistant.

    I ran in to him today at Lucas Oil he was shocked I knew who he was. I wished him the best, and hoped he got the job. He didn't really seem sure if he was a finalist. I told him I heared his name rumored, and he was just hopeful. He is one of the nicest guys and really good guy for our city. I hope he gets it. IUPUI needs a guy with a player development background.

    There was someone on here who asked about Eric Gordon's dad as a trainer for their kid.(I think it was you I don't remember)

    For my money I would send my kid to Carlos such a good 1v1 teacher of the game. He has paid his dues he deserves a shot. I believe he could really recruit given the chance.


    I agree with Cdash if I was an assistant at a great school like St Louis I would pass on this job , and wait for something better, but maybe that new facility has made the job look a lot better.

    The pro-am he runs is NCAA approved(or was when it was a pro-am). Last year it was just a pro event, no college players played so last year they started charging.
