Would be shocked by Danny going to OSU.  The only job I could see him leaving for is Kentucky, and even that I'd have my doubts.  He's a Northeastern guy.

I don’t know if he’s credible, but this guy is saying Sean Miller to Ohio State is pretty much a done deal.

Consider reading some of his other tweets.  That should give you an idea.

Yes that Simon Charles account is one of the biggest trolls out there - he is making up the Sean Miller news for engagement.  Just look at Simon's bio: "Esteemed sports journalist & Patriots Beat Writer Double PHD in Journalism & Female Anatomy"

Majored in female anatomy  :o

It'd be weird for him to leave. The program fits is style and personality. He's at a blue blood program (they have as many titles as the rest of the conference combined), and he's proven he can win. The only reasons to leave would be internal issue, or lack of confidence in the conference future.
Don't you think that if and when the Power 5 or whatever they're called now split off Hurley would have any trouble landing a job there if he wanted to?  Even if he had stayed at UConn until the split?

As for him leaving, I don't want any top-notch talent leaving the Big East.

Correct.  If it all went down to P2 and Hurley wanted in someone would take him.  IMO, if this rumor holds water only if Hurley is looking for a pay increase... Which I'm sure UConn would be happy to give him.

XM Radio College station is reporting this is in fact a done deal. Hard to believe Miller is still coaching at X if true.

My guess is that XM is using this same tweet as a source - when it clearly isn't reliable.

Everything is being run through Miller's agent anyway.

Are we going to have to play another team immediately after a coaching change?! I hate that. Fortunately, the first time was DePaul and they're bad enough that it didn't matter. But ask Purdue how they feel about playing a team that is fired up to play for an interim HC.

That would make sense. They didn't even state it was an unverified rumor, just that Miller is gone like they were saying today is Thursday. You'd expect them to vet the story from multiple sources but I guess that is asking too much these days.

OSU used as a bargaining chip again?

If McDermott does get an extension at Creighton, it would be good for the BE and good for Greg to stay on the plantation he created.

Simon Charles started the Kolek Can't Read thing.  He has zero knowledge of Miller going to OSU.

Yes. It's a troll account that still manages to catch people now and then.

Concern about the BE conference future would not be the only reason he leaves.  Ohio State can offer him more resources - a higher salary, NIL, etc. A Big Ten school these days is always going to have that in abundance v. a BE school.

But the other thing is that Hurley may just be using this as leverage. He is the defending national championship coach with the #1 team in the country. And some MASSIVE jobs are open.  Yes he just signed an extension in the off-season, but having his agent field calls may simply be the next negotiating ploy.

Or maybe the leverage isn't about him, but about getting the donor base to pony up more for NIL.

Yeah, I don't pay too much attention to those figures because I have no idea what an apples to apples comparison look like. For instance, does UConn's include any rent it pays when playing in Hartford? How are they allocating academic support costs?

OK,  but you are good with making off the cuff statements like OSU can offer him a higher salary?

Well considering Hurley is making 5.25  compared to Holtman's 3.5, I have a feeling UConn would match anything OSU would offer.

Hard to believe Miller would leave X to go to OSU. He has a great gig at X. But, you never know what these guys are thinking.
