Not of this changes the fact that Howland is an excellent coach and, in many respects, got a raw deal.
"I have just been more than a little suspect of all the trades since the Willy (Scott Williamson) cash grab. That one left such a bad taste in my mouth that even a 1985 Dom Pérignon couldn't cleanse it." -- Creek14
Myself, I would have waited and seen if John Beilein or Thad Matta (the former being more likely) would have taken it. Alford has west coast connections and that's why he got the job.
Also don't think Howland got a raw deal. Yes he did make it to three Final Fours but the teams following he lost complete control of. Reeves Nelson being the most specific. Wouldn't be shocked if something comes out with Shabazz Muhammad either.

I haven't seen it. Don't want to see it. But can someone tell me what happened exactly? The reactions on twitter basically leaving me with the knowledge that it was terrible, but beyond that, no real description and I don't want to google it in case there is an image.
Here's a link to the video, but it is certainly not for the faint of heart.
