Now that we’re into our second week of the Gophers’ search to replace Tubby Smith, many names have been floated as possibilities. There was little news Monday surrounding Marquette’s Buzz Williams, one of the top candidates still available, but one possible Big Ten candidate gained a little life while another rumored interest dropped off the radar. Let’s take a look at that latter two:

Losing Andy Enfield was a blow, but not unexpected. It is rather obvious he prefers the warm weather over other intangibles; I don't blame him. Sure, the Gophers job would be higher profile (B1G), but Enfield has shown what he can do at a small, almost Div 2 school with players who were overlooked by about everyone. It is likely he can do even better at a Pac-12 school, even if they are the "little brother" in the LA area. It will be interesting to see what he can do in a couple years against Steve Alford at UCLA, who strikes me as a bit over-rated. As for the Gophers? My thought is that we will end up with a "Shaka Smart before he was somebody" type of hire from the assistant ranks somewhere.

last week in an elevater in dc i ran into a young black guy wearing a ucla sweatshirt and apologized to him for knocking out his team. his reaction was to thank us for putting the final nail in their former coaches coffin and commented how we were both looking for new coaches. when i suggested we simply trade he said "sure, why not? anybody would be better than than the guy we had". i had to agree.

This is taking too long. Is. Mr. Maturi still in the building? Teague is starting to look a lot like Maturi ( the Big Fund Raiser).

"ESPN’s Andy Katz reported..."... That's like saying you overheard it in a bathroom somewhere... So, how many contacts has Katz reported MN has made? 10 now? Where ever does this paragon of fine information get his stuff - what, Teague briefs him daily and stiffs the locals, apparently?... Sure he does...

Ok, I will mark down April 17th on my calendar as the day for me to panic.

"no need to panic" First and foremost, the time to panic is NOW! Why? The state of Minnesota is about to have one of its most talented recruiting classes ever. Do you really think Tyus and company will even consider Minnesota? With no coach, the decision has been made for them. If the search process goes longer than a month, look for transfers to begin. What does a 5 start recruit look for in a basketball program? A coach that has a proven track record. A program that is consistent on a national level. A program that ALWAYS makes it to the NCAA tourney. Face it, a D1, 4-5 star recruit is not looking at what kind of education they are going to get. They're there to play basketball. Tyus, do your basketball career a big favor... go East young man, go East.
