DePaul needs a team it can beat up on.  After all these years of being the doormat, they've earned it.

You're right, it's cute.
I won't bring the Buzz to Illini thread to the top of the board again, so I'll make my comment here, but that idea/hope was getting some play on Chi radio this morning.  Mulley and Handley is the morning show on 670 and Brian Handley is an MU guy so they convo went to Buzz and how he'd be a great fit for the Illini.  They they proceeded to play a bunch of comments from his post game conference and compare his hoarse voice to Thibs. "The butcher, the baker, the candlestick maker" had them going.
The latest on Shocka was then that he is going to stay at VCU "unless something changes in the next 24 hrs". The reporter of that story implied that that change is a S. Smart ploy for more $.
I'm sure these aren't the only two places talking about Buzz.

Why does everyone think that SMU has a huge athletic budget? Last I heard, they were 98 million in the red for the past decade. Does anyone know why their fans think they can outbid 2.6 mill a year? Am I missing something?

Is everyone with an internet connection and electricity automatically an expert on Buzz Williams?  What happened to that nut at the Sun-times that said his "sources" said Buzz's buyout is only 100k and is going to the Illini?  How is that story working out?

Stop doing this.  Only post from people that have a fracking clue.

P.S.

The one thing that did make sense is at the very end ... Tony Benford to SMU.  That would be a good hire for them.

Probably because of their endowment.  They are one of probably 50 schools in the country with an endowment over $1billion.  On a per student basis, that is north of $100K per student.  Very impressive.

Marquette ain't close to that level, about $400 million

I knew they had a very impressive endowment, but athletic budget's aren't directly related to endowment. A university can only use so much of their endowment each year, or otherwise it loses it's economic purpose. Harvard would be unstoppable with their endowment of $32 billion, if that were the case  ;D

Can anyone name a conference cellar dweller program with no legacy in hoops that hired a "big name".and it worked?

I don't see Tubby Smith at Minnesota or Oliver Purnell at Depaul. Tearing it up.

Hire a hot assistant like Benford and let him go to work.  That is how its done.

Couldn't agree more. Doug Collins is floating Chris Collins' name for the U of I job and the subject of Northwestern came up. Doug Collins, to his credit, wouldn't discuss NU because technically Carmody still has the job. Anyways, I thought about how getting the "next" guy instead of some re-tread is absolutely the way to go for a program in need of a coach.

All the current "hot names" were sitting on some other HC's bench a couple of years ago. Find them first. Thibs and the Bulls is a perfect example. 

Only exceptions I can think of are when the dominoes fell and Roy Williams went to UNC and Bill Self went to Kansas.

"It's SMU... It's SMU"

Seriously, though, is that reporter doing lines off of her laptop?  She could have just as easily said Roy Williams/Coach K/Bill Self and it would have been equally absurd.

I know, but my supposition is their followers know there are vast amounts of $$$ in the school and probably think that means they can get anyone they want.  How much was June Jones paid for football? 

They will need to upgrade their basketball budgets in a big way to play in the Big East and I suspect that was agreed to by them upon their acceptance to the conference.  What they do today and what they spend in the coming years will be different.  Similar to how Marquette stepped up considerably in their expenditures.

some funny tweets about Buzz to SMU:


SMU wants to interview Buzz Williams? I mean I get they should aim high but that is ridiculous.

Why should SMU have to settle for making a run at Buzz Williams? Phil Jackson isn't doing anything right now

SMU is targeting Buzz Williams to be its men's basketball coach. There is more of a chance of me coaching SMU next year than Buzz Williams.

So SMU will "make a run" at Buzz Williams. And I'll make a run at Kate Beckinsale.

SMU is looking at Buzz Williams? Odds of that happening are roughly the same as my odds of dunking a basketball. # zilch # shortwhiteguy

DMN says SMU will make a run at Marquette's Buzz Williams SMU must found way to turn empty seats into $$$

SMU wants to go after Buzz Williams? Why not Tom Izzo or Bill Self?

I hear Marquette is alright with this move because Coach K wants to make a move to the Midwest.
