Stansbury might go Bama if offered. Cold day in hell before he goes back to State.

There is ZERO chance Stansbury would even get offered by us. See my earlier post to qit. It would be like Saban retiring in football and us hiring Tommy Tuberville to replace him. He is not well-received in Tuscaloosa for his shadiness in Starkville.

According to ED, it's looking like Ben howland!

Holy hell what a hire that would be.

If State were to get Howland, we better not accept less than Gregg Marshall, Archie Miller or Shaka Smart.

That's an intriguing prospect. Get a man that's second only to wooden in wins at ucla and been to a few final fours. We could do a helluva lot worse I think...

helluva lot worse?

That'd be the best slam dunk home run hire we could make.

Howland would be a really good hire for anybody, but an especially impressive hire for State.

If this is really the kind of coaching search State is looking to carry out, the pressure just went up on Bill Battle.

I could get behind Howland but I'll believe it when I see it

Ben Howland would be a total slam. Coaching style and aggressiveness on the recruiting trail similar to Stansbury. Would be outstanding if he came here

Since Howland works for NBC and NBC is reporting the interest I'd bet he's their source and he wants the job

Glad I was out of the U.S. for most of the Rick Ray era. I know that Howlands agent is pushing a ton of crap into the media to create a buzz. Howland will take the best job he can. Hopefully we can convince him its us. This would be a get of unreal size. Howland can change everything. That being said, I'll believe it when it's done.

SEC taking basketball seriously. No way

Football and TV may be taken care of for a little while. They have time look over the other sports now.

Absolutely. Kentucky has obviously struggled against them all. Only managed to win by 15ppg instead of 25+. It's mildly disconcerting.

you never like seeing a former coach go to a conference rival, but that said, good luck to bama if they pick stans. he has some serious drawbacks, but he is a great recruiter and plays the aau game well. that aside, bama fans, if you pick stans, prepare for some serious frustration.

I don't follow basketball much, but does this feel like when we hired the Kang back in the day? Ex-headcoach has been out of the game for a while, won other, more prestigious places, wants to get back into the ring?

Sort of, but more like if sherril recruited and coached tom Brady, Calvin Johnson, and Richard Sherman.

Here's a few current NBA players he signed and coached.

Russell Westbrook, Kevin Love, jru holiday, Arron affualo ...

Tack on if Sherrill had played in 3 BCS games, won the division 10 times, and played for a national championship
