    ESPN experts say Alford has not been approached by IU and Alford has not contacted IU. Also Alford was asked about mentioning a possible coaching job at IU to his UCLA team, no he said " there has been no discussion about leaving this team in the locker room meeting to his players."

    Alford is staying put, take it to the bank!!

    He may be the most underrated coach in the country. If he were not an SEC coach he may get some respect, but alas, he's an SEC coach.

    The guy is winning at South Carolina. Final Four is within reach. The guy has been coaching for 9 seasons and has taken KState and South Carolina to Elite Eights.

    Martin is a self made coach, spending many years coaching Jr. high and high school teams. He has mellowed a bit since he took the SCarolina job. I'm sure his players appreciate that!

    Did this decision have to be made so quick?
    I think the homerun would have been Billy D even moreso than Alford and he could have been persuaded cash-wise I'm sure, but don't think he could have made a decision till maybe start of NBA playoffs.
    I like the hire of Miller though

    I don't see Billy D going there and I bet Alford declined so they moved on.

    Conversation with Archie's dad about the process. Comment about NCST is interesting.

    I'm still wondering if they attempted to get Frank Martin. We'll never know but if they didn't they're fools.

    I love John Miller. I sat next to him on so many airplanes -- the dude is a basketball junkie. He would sit and watch practice like he watching a Broadway show...wouldn't take his eyes off it. Wouldn't miss a detail. He is the epitome of a basketball guy.
