There is an excellent article that I will link below from gary parrish @ cbs sportsline( home of doyel) on the unlv job position. It goes through why some coaches can succeed and some fail in todays college basketball. and also goes over something very interesting that was not widely reported. Bobby knight inquired about the UNLV job. not surprising when you think about it. Living in a nice city, making good money, with expectations that are not exceptionally high at this point. but i digress.
The article discusses what it takes these days to run a successful program and how it is not a game for old men. back in the 90's you did not need to attend so much summer league AAU garbage to land players. you went a few times during the season to their high school and went from there. A player like Joe smith does not exist today. To be honest a player like juan dixon may still come around( steph curry) but that is more likely than a big guy who is 6-10. there are just not enough of them to get lost in the shuffle. anyways. enjoy the article.
on a final note. will be interesting to see hubert's timetable. normally the longer things go, the worse a situation for the terps...Im not so sure that is the case here. What I hope he realizes is that he will get recruited over @ unc. they will go ahead and keep them coming, and unless you are ultracompetitive to begin with, that situation is not the best for you( see wear twins)
