Not a good week to be a college basketball head coach

Great. Iowa is having their best season in two decades and now we're going to have to deal with this distraction.

I think Alford is a risky hire. Kinda like if the Royals hired Frank White. Great storyline back to the "good ol days", but makes it awful hard to fire him if he doesn't succeed.

I wouldn't think it'd be hard.

Indiana demands success.
If Alford isn't successful, they'll demand a change.

Yeah, but that would tarnish his image. Grew up here, played high school ball here for one of the best high schools in the state, won a national championship with IU here. I think he has more to lose than gain really.

It won't even matter if Indiana does or doesn't want him. It's going to be a big media circus regardless, fueld by rampant speculation.

Bob Knight will always rule Indiana.

I think Iowa has had a love-hate relationship with Alford anyway, and with the graduation of Brunner and Horner, the time is ripe for change. And I for one, would welcome it. Maybe Tom Davis would forgive and forget.

I think Iowa has had a love-hate relationship with Alford anyway, and with the graduation of Brunner and Horner, the time is ripe for change. And I for one, would welcome it. Maybe Tom Davis would forgive and forget.I have two concerns.

1. This becoming a distraction and fugging with the success of this season
2. Alford becoming a thorn in our ass, coaching a conference foe.

I'm not an Alford fan, and wouldn't care if we fired him at the end of the season. But I don't want this Indiana thing to become the focus of everything this year's team deals with, and I don't want to find out we were wrong on Alford by facing him twice a year.

With Miles Brand gone, what are the odds Indiana will try and reclaim Knight from Texas Tech?

I doubt Knight would want to come back. There's certainly a legion of Texas Tech wearing fans that'd probably enjoy it though...
