Recent events create an entirely new set of assumptions, including these:
—any school that’s anywhere near a five star is, at the very least, flirting with the edge
—any school whose recruiting successes suddenly improve dramatically is asking for greater scrutiny
—any school with a significant connection to an NBA agent is, at the very least, flirting with the edge
—any school with a recent NBA draft pick is dealing with opportunities and possibilities and choices that can backfire.
I dont think any of the foregoing assumptions apply to Minnesota. But (as suggested above) the old, “Apples don’t fall far from the tree,” adage certainly raises eyebrows.
