Somehow, someway... if we lose Hoiberg... it’ll be Tim Miles fault.

If you can't believe someone with the twitter handle "sp0rtsgenius69", who can you believe?

I thought this was a real cool and fascinating story and a good read on how unpredictable these coaching hires can be.  Hopefully, we don't end up like UNLV and can write the same history with Hoiberg that Texas Tech is enjoying with Beard:

I'm just glad what's happening to UCLA didn't happen to us:

UCLA has a hyperinflated view of the state of their program.

 

They shoot for the fences trying to poach Calipari. Kentucky responds with a lifetime contract.

 

Then panic sets in and the program locks in on Cronin (Cincinnati) and Dixon (TCU), meanwhile the fanbase is holding out for Tony Bennett (Virginia) thinking he's actually a possibility.

 

"If UCLA is insistent on hiring someone whose team isn’t in the Final Four by next week, it will be certain that they hurried and made another mistake in a long line of poor hiring decisions by Dan Guerrero."

 It kind of did when Solich was fired...at least the ultimate result of being a national laughingstock for a botched search with a disappointing hire part of it.

 

Maybe they will hire Lue. Didn't he coach for the Clippers before going to Cleveland?

What is up with the UCLA job? There must be something going on there that the eye can't see.

 

Like how do you not attract everyone in the business to that job, unless there is a major issue at the athletic department or institutional level.
