These are the names I've heard so far:

- Bob Huggins -My first choice. Would be an excellent hire.
- Bob Knight - Won't happen.
- Rolando Blackmon -Terrible choice. Has no HC experience.
- Jimmy Elgas -No.
- Brian Kelso - It's Ben Kelso. High School coach turned 1 year assistant to Jim Wooldridge? No thank you.

I think everyone here knows i've been pimping Huggins for the past couple of weeks. We won't hear ANYTHING until the 23rd. Something to do with affirmative action after firing someone, in the state of Kansas.

My "guy" tells me there is a mtg established for Thursday btw Huggs and ADTW. Where? No clue. If I had to guess, I'd say it will be somewhere near the Hutch JC BB Tourney. Huggins attends this thing every year, and it started today.

I can assure you that:

a. KSU did have interest in Greg McD

b. KSU did not offer Greg McD

They were fishing to to get his interest and he used that to push the ISU deal thru. Believe it, don't believe it, but that IS what happened.

Now, come on. I can't tell you that. It's true though.

Suffice it to say, there's going to be a meeting this week with Huggins, and I personally believe there will be an offer extended by weeks end. MU is not a player any more for Huggins. They are so fooked up over there, that they have no idea whether to take a $hit or wind their wrist watch with that committee approach.

And just think, if Iowa State can get their search done in five days, how long do you think it will take Kansas State to finish? Itís been rumored that Kansas Stateís top prospect is Huggins, who is also rumored to be Missouriís top prospect.

For his sake, I hope he lands Huggins. There will be an official meltdown in Manhattan if it's anybody but.

Does "Meltdown in Manhattan" sound better than "Miracle in Manhattan"? Catchy either way, I suppose.

Blue-chip recruits will follow Huggins, wherever he ends up


Gregg Doyel Nov. 14, 2005
By Gregg Doyel
CBS SportsLine.com Senior Writer


A college basketball program will hire Bob Huggins this spring. That school is out there somewhere, and whoever it is, that school will be getting a lot more than Bob Huggins.

It will be getting a ready-to-go recruiting class, too. Maybe even two recruiting classes. Maybe, dare we say it, even future NBA All-Star O.J. Mayo.

Huggins is a free agent, and recruits know it. A handful of elite prospects, including 7-foot-2 Jason Bennett of Jacksonville, Fla., are letting this week's early signing period pass without making a decision. They are waiting, in many cases, for Huggins.

Huggins could end up almost anywhere next season, but his ties are strongest to Ohio. He was raised there, attended Ohio University before graduating from West Virginia, and has spent all 24 years as a head coach in Ohio.

It doesn't take much imagination to picture Huggins next season at, say, Kent State or Ohio University. The current coaches there, Jim Christian and Tim O'Shea, could jump to bigger schools if their teams win another 20 games in 2005-06.

It might not be Kent State or Ohio, but it will be somewhere. Whether you like Huggins or not is irrelevant. He wins. Wherever he goes next season, Huggins will bring baggage, yes -- but he'll also bring a 567-199 record, 14 consecutive NCAA Tournament appearances and a 20-for-24 success rate of 20-win seasons.

And he'll bring players.

Here (potentially) are some of them, with CBS SportsLine.com projecting their odds of following Huggins:

Jason Bennett: Bennett is a consensus top-100 recruit who says he would've committed to Cincinnati in August had Huggins received a contract extension instead of a pink slip. Bennett could have signed this week with Georgia, Clemson or Miami -- among others -- but a source close to Bennett says he is waiting to see where Huggins lands. Odds of following Huggins: 80 percent.

Ramar Smith: Smith, a 6-2 shooting guard generally ranked among the top 40 seniors, had been committed to Connecticut until he jeopardized his freshman eligibility by withdrawing from prep school this fall. The Huskies rescinded the scholarship offer, and Smith is back in Detroit, unsigned and uncommitted. At this time last year, Cincinnati was his top choice. Odds of following Huggins: 50 percent.

Ryan Pettinella: Pettinella, a 6-9 forward, transferred from Penn to Cincinnati this summer but was released from his scholarship after Huggins was let go. Pettinella, who averaged 4.8 points and three rebounds as a Penn sophomore, is attending Monroe (N.Y.) Community College but not playing. Like Bennett and Smith, he is letting the early signing period slip past. He'll have two years of Division I eligibility beginning in 2006-07, and his father says he wants to play for Huggins. Odds of following Huggins: 90 percent.

Herb Pope: Pope, a 6-9 forward from the class of 2007, is a top-10 recruit and a likely McDonald's All-American. When Huggins was at Cincinnati, Pope had the Bearcats among his favorite schools before committing in March to Pittsburgh. Five months later Pope backed off that commitment, and a source close to Pope says he is monitoring Huggins' future. The connection is Pope's AAU coach, J.O. Stright, founder of the Pittsburgh J.O.T.S. and one of Huggins' closest friends. How close? When Huggins suffered a massive heart attack in September 2002, he called Stright. Stright called the paramedics. Odds of following Huggins: 75 percent.

O.J. Mayo and Bill Walker: These are two more top-10 recruits from the Class of 2007, maybe even the two best recruits from that class. Mayo, 6-5, is one of the top backcourt prospects since Kobe Bryant. Walker, 6-6, is less refined but a Vince Carter-like athlete. Both play for North College Hill (Ohio) High near Cincinnati, and both became close to Huggins after regular unofficial visits to campus. Until Huggins was fired, Cincinnati was considered the front-runner to land Mayo, Walker and 6-11 teammate Keenan Ellis. Odds of following Huggins: 60 percent.

Huggins -- unemployed, yet on the prowl for recruits. It's a fascinating concept. Until a school hires him, Huggins is beyond NCAA jurisdiction limiting coaches to a set number of phone calls or visits with recruiting targets. He can't give recruits extra benefits, but he can operate outside NCAA boundaries in other, non-punishable ways. Literally, if he moved in with O.J. Mayo tomorrow, what could the NCAA do about it?

For now, Huggins won't talk about it. He told CBS SportsLine.com that, until his contract with Cincinnati expires at November's end, he's not comfortable discussing his future.

In that vacuum of volume, hear this: A team featuring O.J. Mayo and Ramar Smith at guard ... Bill Walker and Herb Pope at forward ... and Jason Bennett at center ... and coached by Bob Huggins ... might just win the 2007 national championship.

Recruits are clamoring for Huggins. Pretty soon, it'll be athletics directors.

Just a dream, just a drreaammmmm...... ya know how the song goes.

But Huggins could go a long ways to bringing KSU's BB program up from the middle of the road. The scary part will be the baggage that comes along.....


Just think Roy, the coach they canned split Ws with KU.:)

I can assure you that:

a. KSU did have interest in Greg McD

b. KSU did not offer Greg McD

They were fishing to to get his interest and he used that to push the ISU deal thru. Believe it, don't believe it, but that IS what happened.This article seems to provide evidence that you are incorrect. McDermott WAS offered the job at KSU. Youre source is either a liar or out of the loop.

Which proves my point that K-State is not a desirable destination for most coaches. Huggins took it because it was his only option. And he'll be gone at the first better offer he receives. Which means he is stuck a KSU.

Interesting article. Thanks for the link.

Too bad it misses the actual truth. KSU was talking with McD. KSU wanted to gain his interest while they were in discussions with Huggins. They were covering their bases in the event that the Huggins deal fell through. McD used that as leverage to get the deal done with ISU.

Do you honestly think we took Huggins as our number 2? Common sense might be in order here.........

I don't understand why this is so difficult to understand. McDermott himself said that K-State had offered him the job. It's that simple.
