    I loved Thunder Dan as a player but not as GS’s next coach.

    Georgia Southern is a significant step up from Radford, NC Central, and Grand Canyon. Majerle is unemployed. It’s debatable that we would want him, but he’s not in a position to say no. Moton and Jones make peanuts. This isn’t a glamorous job but it’s not as terrible as you’re making it out to be. I’m surprised you’ve made the turn from #1 basketball fan to negative Nancy so fast.

    The big guy just tweeted that he had a teleconference with Benko and there is a lot of interest in our position, and he expects the hire to happen quickly.

    im not negative just pointing out some of our basketball shortcomings, kind of reality based rather than GS "homer'ism". Ive outlined how I would go about filling our HC job. Go down the list of the top 10 JUCO programs and the top 10 D2 programs over the past 10 years. Then check the coaching history for each school over that period of time. Select 5 of those HC's(out of those 20 schools) and interview them. That way, money, salary shouldn't be a drawback/sticking point. You also use the "stepping stone" principle as a positive marketing tool rather than negative. "Come here, do well, move on to bigger and better things". That type of "pool" I think would bring a "hungry" HC in, rather than a retread HC from a non significant D1 program, just my IMO. We went the D2 route with our current ladies HC and I like what I'm seeing, out of those 20 schools there has to be a Coach Howard type.

    I hope our AD stresses to potential hires, "Your job, win SB and get us to NCAA's sooner, rather than later". CB got us to the point of winning 20 games a season, now we move up, 20 wins a season, win a SB or two and every so often go "dancing"(and that doesn't mean every 28-30 years).

    What a surprise that Benko put forward these thoughts. I would be mildly upset had he said. "People are hanging up on me and refusing my calls! We're screwed."

    What else did you think Benko would say?

    Garns called, he’s interested in the position.
