    Absolutely, but situation was quite a bit different then. When you're in the A-10, rightly or wrongly, you're a "stepping stone" gig for the vast majority of these guys. Now that they're in the BEast, I'd think they'd be able to aim higher and attract a deeper pool of candidates.

    And have to replace most of the roster in the process. Will they try to keep it rolling, or hit the reset button. Will be interesting if it happens...

    Greg Christopher is lame duck and he will not have autonomy to make the hire.

    Buddy of mine from Virginia called today and said the Mid-Atlantic sports' talk guys are all over this; even rumoring a press conference has been called for early next week by Pitino? If Rick really wasn't consulted about the dumping of this post season, you couldn't really blame him.

    Talked about giving David Padgett a promotion last night. If he's leaving, even by Pitino standards, he's leading a lot of folks on...

    I'm not trying to stir something up but didn't the Board give Paterno a vote of confidence before more of the Sandusky story came out and then removed him?
