    Isn't Omersa like a full year younger than the average freshman? There is a lot of potential there. He would have done well to go the prep school route.

    A lot of hearsay and speculation, but there are a few nuggets that I would tend to believe - specifically that there has been dialogue between Nebraska interests and Hoiberg and that Musselman would have some interest in this situation. Coyle is so tight-lipped that anything attributed to him feels like pure speculation. My speculation would be that, like many/most of us, he likes Pitino and enjoys working with him but has nagging doubts about his abilities and potential for growth and recognizes that his conference record is historically bad by any measure.

    Pitino is staying.
    IW is transfering to probably St. Johns.
    The 2020 guys: No Suggs or Carlson, Dainja and Walton yes. 50/50 on Dawson. I'm not blown away with Dawson's ability to score down low for a PF but at 6'10 that might come as he gets stronger.

    Based on what source do you think this?

So I think it will take two major things to happen to let him go. #1 Stinker against Penn State, stinker in round 1 of NCAA (if they make it). #2 - Coyle has a strong feeling that recruiting is lagging. Those two items maybe would push Pitino out the door. But I think he has about a 70% chance of staying.

    Transfer candidates - IW and Hurt. Anyone else? Omersa? I hope not him. He needs time to develop.
    You mean the guy that has Minnesota tattooed across his back? Don’t think so..l

    Call me crazy, but I feel Suggs could come here. Not saying it's the highest percentage, but not out of the question.

    Omersa isn't going anywhere.

    Why would St. Johns have interest? They'll essentially be down a scholarship next year while he sits out (we've seen how that can hurt a program fighting for an NCAA birth) and he hasn't shown a whole lot.

    I don't think Omersa is going anywhere, but didn't Khalid El Amin get a tattoo of MN on his arm and then pick UCONN?

    I'm hearing Doogies gets a cut from Hoiberg's agent. But also maybe not.

    If we make the tournament, I don't think Coyle makes a move. Firing your coach after making the NCAA's twice in a row is going to get you mocked nationally, especially when you're Minnesota.

    Saying a team made it to the NCAA tourney two years in a row when they didn't will also get you mocked.

    thats not what he meant.

    He meant that MN already fired a coach (Tubby) that went to the NCAA in his final season. It would look bad if we did it twice, as in to two different coaches

    I can do his job while at my actual job, where I do actual things.

    Anyone else want me to report on stuff?
    Thank you. I was just saying this in another thread. That or he says something stupid that someone objects to and then he will find the biggest idiot in the mentions who says something outlandish and then he quotes them and replies as its some sort of validation. I wouldn't care if he put out reports like these with nothing in it, but then actually at least answer to the criticism and questions. Right now he gets offended because there is zero content in anything he writes or has no sources, and then he tries to validate his writing to those who criticize by putting idiots in their place and he gets offended.

    I'm referencing firing Tubby after making the NCAAs and doing it again this time.
