    Like he went to 1 Tournament in 8 years at Stanford and his son doesn't have eligibility left.

    You hate to see someone with such a loser mentality as LeonardWashington but oh well. I guess the guy who died in 9/11 for the stripper parties died in vain in Leonard’s mind.

    Drown ‘Em probably doesn’t know you as well as I do so he doesn’t know that you constantly forget 9/11 and that you love disrespecting the troops.

    I have heard several things but none of them strong enough to report with any amount of confidence. But here are a few that have already been talked about or discussed most likely.

    -Prohm was a target who passed. I was told early on he was unlikely to take the job
    -Pitino would have for sure been interested and there were some of the Alabama power brokers who were in his corner but after Byrne's statement I don't see that as likely.
    -I've heard mixed info from sources on Matta. One maintains he's in play as in having discussions while another is saying he's unlikely to take the job if offered. Not sure what to believe but both have been fairly reliable in the past.
    -Mick Cronin's name has been mentioned as well.

    Travis/ Potter have touched on most of this already. I was told they want this hire to happen quickly.

    Hoiberg would be interesting. He was vocal about not being very interested in the recruiting stuff in college. No doubt the guy can coach though.

    Losing Petty and Lewis would suck. Petty could develop into a good player under the right coach. Lewis is already very good and would be even better with a good coach. I don't buy it as much that he's gone but we will see.

    Snakes actually died on 9/11. He climbed out onto the wing of United 93 and just started furiously jacking off, catching the attention of the hijackers long enough for the hero passengers to overpower them.

    I cannot overstate how amazing this will be if Byrne pulls this off. My wife is a Tech alum who has been talking mad shit this season because we suck. She ADORES Chris Beard, and she truly believes he’s loyal to Texas Tech. I don’t think he’s loyal, but I doubt he’d leave for Alabama without a monster offer.

    I will buy Greg Byrne one of Rick Pitino’s recruiting hookers if he pulls this off.

    I just have a feeling Byrne is going to strike out on beard/matta and will be too much of a pussy to hire pitino. Then we'll be stuck with another mid-major bum so that we get to do this again in 4-5 years.

    Hope I'm wrong but that's the most likely outcome IMO

    I will say - I feel pretty good about Byrne hiring a mid-major/assistant. I think he knows the right people to talk to and the right resume statistical stuff to analyze to make a good decision.

    I would shocked if he just hired a guy who won a couple tournament games or had a great player for 2 years.

    John Brannen is our floor.

    If Byrne was truly stuck Brannen would be on a plane and the press conference would be scheduled for tomorrow at 5:30PM so no one would notice or care.

    We might get there at some point but it isn’t right now.

    The right coach gets Petty and Lewis back on board imo.

    Let's be honest, the market can't be that high for Petty. Can't see many people chomping at the bit to get him.
