Where would he have gone?

I get that OU isn't the best bball job in the country, but there are still only a few (5-10 maybe) clearly better jobs in the country. KU in the Big 12. Duke, NC, and UK. Indiana, though I feel like that job is losing appeal. Then a few others that are comparable. Zona, UCLA, Florida, maybe Michigan.

I have no idea what they were trying to run on offense (meaning nothing) and he refused to mix it up on defense while Loyola drove and back doored them to death. We need a coach that'll coach up our guys into a set system.

Capel turned down the zona job to stay at ou. He wanted to stay at ou until duke came calling.

Agreed. Didn’t think I would need to add that any coach we hire will need to be checked out thoroughly, something Joe C will almost certainly do.

Not really. Bulls fans are really happy with Fred this year. His young talent showed a lot of flashes, and then they went tank mode. If this was posted last year, sure, but this year, they actually love him.

Sure, he got some sympathy this year for the rebuild, but another year or two of .500 play, and he'll be back in college.

Stevens could go 0-82 next year, and still wouldn't be close to the hot seat.

I'd say Henson also. It would really surprise me if Fred came here.
