Georgia Tech has OUR coach on their wish list
MDB Tide Roll

With the Paul Hewitt era of Georgia Tech basketball in the history books, the Yellow Jackets will turn their attention to finding a new basketball coach. Athletic Director Dan Radakovich laid out his plans on Saturday for the hiring process and a wide range of names have been rightly and wrongly connected to the job.

"It is very wide-open right now. As you think about this right now, there are probably three buckets of individuals who fit right in this right now: current head coaches, current assistants and people who are not in one of those other two buckets," Radakovich said.
"We are looking for the best person to come in here and take over this job and lead our basketball program. We do not have a set level of criteria. That is what the search process is for."

Radakovich said in the press conference that he would be willing to spend top dollar for an elite or high profile coach. One name that has emerged early on is Alabama coach Anthony Grant. Grant is licking his wounds on Sunday after his team's bubble was burst by the NCAA after a 21 win season. Grant spent a decade as an assistant at Florida, won 24-plus games in three years at Virginia Commonwealth (2 NCAA appearances) and posted a 38-26 record while turning around the Crimson Tide this past year.


No, no, no, they can't have him. 

Top 5 SNUBS - Bama's #3 - ESPN article

The top-five tourney snubs of 2011
By Eamonn Brennan

Alabama Crimson Tide (21-11, 12-4 in the SEC; RPI: 80; SOS: 136)

What the committee would say: "Alabama had a nice SEC season, sure, but we think that 12-4 conference record has more to do with its status as the SEC West 's lone competent team and less to do with any inherent quality on Alabama's part. What's more, every game counts. You can't lose play one of the worst high-major nonconference schedules in the country -- rank: 294 -- and expect to get the benefit of the doubt unless you easily handle that schedule. Alabama went 9-7 against that slate. It lost to Iowa, Seton Hall and St. Peter's. Its RPI would be one of the worst to ever get in the NCAA tournament. We like the eye test, but it only goes so far, and we can't ignore Bama's ugly resume just because we think Anthony Grant's team "looks" like it can compete in the tournament."

What fans would say: "Dudes ... we went 12-4 in the SEC! We were 4-4 against the RPI top 50! Sure, we had a bad weekend in November. So what? Whatever happened to considering how teams played late in the season? (We were 8-4 in our last 12 games, including two wins over Georgia and one at Tennessee, not to mention the royal jobbing we got in an 81-77 loss to Vanderbilt.) For that matter, whatever happened to considering how teams played against their conferences? The SEC West was bad, but we didn't get to 12-4 merely by beating Auburn, LSU and Arkansas. We're one of the best defensive teams in the country! If you don't think we're a tournament team, you just haven't been paying attention."

Arkansas Coach Pelphrey Out

Just updated

John Pelphrey was fired as the head basketball coach at Arkansas on Sunday, ending a rocky four-year career at the school.

Pelphrey learned of his fate during an end of the season meeting with Arkansas athletics director Jeff Long Sunday morning. He is expected to meet with the team this afternoon before the school officially announces the coaching change. Long is expected to hold a press conference tonight but released a statement on the firing.

“After a thorough and comprehensive evaluation of our men’s basketball program, including an assessment of the overall student-athlete experience within our program, it is clear that we have not made the progress over the last four years that is necessary to return Razorback Basketball to a place of national relevance.” Long said. “As a program, our initial goals are to challenge for Southeastern Conference championships, compete in the NCAA Tournament and support our student-athletes in the pursuit of a degree. Our program’s tradition demonstrates those goals are certainly attainable at the University of Arkansas.

“The University of Arkansas has a proud tradition in basketball including playing in one of college basketball’s best arenas, Bud Walton Arena, and in front of the nation’s most passionate fans. It is because of this passion that we seek to elevate our program on and off the court.”


NFL Players File Antitrust Suit Against League as Owners Lock Out Players

"WASHINGTON -- Unable to decide how to divvy up $9 billion a year, NFL owners and players put the country's most popular sport in limbo Friday by breaking off labor negotiations hours before their contract expired. The union decertified; the league imposed a lockout.

Ten players, including MVP quarterbacks Tom Brady and Peyton Manning, sued the owners in federal court in Minneapolis. Then, at midnight, the owners locked out the players -- signaling the NFL's first work stoppage since 1987.

"We are locked out," union president and former player Kevin Mawae said in a text message to The Associated Press. "We were informed today that players are no longer welcome at team facilities."

Hurt: Today's wait will be long for Alabama

"ATLANTA | The switch to Daylight Savings Time will take care of one hour, but it is still going to be an agonizing wait for the University of Alabama basketball team.

The Crimson Tide would love to be one of the 68 teams chosen for the NCAA Tournament field this afternoon at about 5 p.m., but is locked on the dreaded bubble with a group of other teams who share similarly blemished resumes.

Alabama's chances center solely on the hope that the NCAA Tournament Selection Committee - a group that has a distinctly non-Southern flavor this year, with no Southeastern Conference representation - feels the SEC was a quality league, and Alabama's 13 SEC wins merit a chance. "

What a wonderful story for all of us Bama fans to add to our memoirs of Bama sports. In just two years, Coach Grant has taken a program that was at the very bottom of the SEC and put it back where it once was, at the top. It's amazing how the players conditioned themselves to Coach Grants demands and are now in a position to reach the ultimate goal of NCAA basketball, going to the "BIG Dance". This is a story that I will never forget and I'm sure you won't either. Roll Tide!!

Georgia losing top in-state recruits to BAMA, others.

"The Class of 2012 is now on the boards of recruiters across the nation, and Georgia may have lost its grip.

Alabama already has commitments from athlete Kenyan Drake, running back Justin Taylor and defensive tackle Dakota Bell. Florida has a verbal from running back Mike Davis.

What about Auburn? The Tigers are the perceived frontrunner for Kenno Loyal, another running back.

Meanwhile, Tennessee got a commitment from Imani Cross.

That begs the question: What in the name of Vince Dooley is going on across the border?"

Breaks my heart. Wink  UGA is behind in recruiting in their own state. Kiss

Dang, should have put this in the recruiting thread.

Columbus, Ohio lawyer gets death threats. Meltdown possible.

The Columbus lawyer who sent e-mails to Ohio State coach Jim Tressel last April about players selling memorabilia said he gave Tressel the names of two players -- starting quarterback Terrelle Pryor and receiver DeVier Posey -- in an interview with ESPN's "Outside the Lines."

Christopher Cicero, a walk-on player for the Buckeyes in the early 1980s, said in his first interview that it has been a stressful time since his name and e-mails to Tressel were revealed.

A fan of the Buckeyes' program, Cicero said he doesn't want to be considered the "Judas" in the controversy, and added he has received some death threats in the past few days.


And...Only when confronted with information that university officials were aware of the presence of the e-mails between Tressel and Cicero did Tressel admit to having received them, according to the source.

Tressel knew, he misled the NCAA, and now smoke is rising over Ohio State University.

Four Auburn football players have been kicked off the team after being arrested and charged with robbery, burglary and theft.

Mike McNeil, Antonio Goodwin, Shaun Kitchens and Dakota Mosley all were arrested early Friday morning in Auburn, Ala.

Auburn police said that three people entered a house and displayed a handgun and stole property. After a motor vehicle stop, the four were arrested and a pistol and stolen property were recovered, according to Auburn police.

Later Friday, Auburn coach Gene Chizik issued a statement saying all four players were thrown off the team.

"The players arrested in connection with this deeply troubling incident have been permanently dismissed from our football team," Chizik said in a statement. "While we realize the legal process will run its course and these young men have a right for their case to be heard, playing for Auburn University is an honor and a privilege. It is not a right."

Auburn athletics director Jay Jacobs said in a statement: "This type of behavior will not be tolerated at Auburn. I fully support Coach Chizik's swift and decisive action to dismiss these four student-athletes from our football team effective immediately."

All four were being held in the Lee County Detention Center on $511,000 bail.

"I am extremely disappointed and embarrassed by the actions of these individuals," Chizik said in a statement. "I want to personally apologize to all of those who were impacted by this senseless act, including the victims, Auburn University and the Auburn family."
