i dont know anything about anything but underwood was really praised here for looking at OSU's roster and putting guys in the proper place. Maybe that's easier said than done, I dunno. Anyway, I wouldn't label him a school-jumper, the stupid AD at OSU is a moron and basically wouldn't even have serious contract negotiations w/Underwood. After the turnaround he just gave OSU, that's pretty ridiculous - especially considering the former awful coach got a 10-year deal after a season like underwood just had

yeah from the sounds of it there was an understanding that the AD and Underwood would renegotiate if he was successful. then the AD wouldn't renegotiate. so basically what I'm saying is jay bilas can horsefeathers off.

I'm not even sure I understand the point he's trying to make there since it's such a garbled mess but whatever

I am in a "survive and advance" Tourney Bracket where you pick one team per day, and you cannot pick that team again. Started with 36 people, down to 15 after today. I went with Baylor on Day 2 so I cannot use them tomorrow. I'm holding off on Duke, North Carolina and Kansas right now.

It looks like I'm choosing between Kentucky (vs. Wichita State) and Oregon (vs. Rhode Island.) No clue which way to go here.

The weirdest thing about the timing of the hiring for me is that technically Illinois is still playing next week. Curious if Underwood gets involved at all for the remainder of this season.

Apparently Walker has a verbal, standing agreement to come back. But, he holds the keys to Tilmon and he's going to leverage that. No one will blame him.

I think the best player in the class is Trent Frazier, though, and he's on board with Underwood.

Walker probably also has the keys to Mark Smith as well.

Probably. I think Walker stays unless he gets an HC gig.

I thought I saw some tweets from Tupper or Sturdy indicating that Walker is sticking around. That's not official yet?

Not a done deal yet, but from the way Whitman has handled things, I cannot see him messing that up.

I like seeing sad people in Cardinals gear even when they're no fans of the baseball team

Quietly, I started to doubt Beilein this year after calling people stupid for doing that for the previous year. I'm saying this now because I'm owning it, I was wrong, I was dumb, Beilein is a demi-god.
