    Snider also got Missouri in trouble but he would be the most intriguing.

    Was Coach K an elite college coach when he got the Duke job?
    ...and this one belongs to the Reds.

    Beilein is way too old. Beard or Stevens would make sense. Mark Few, perhaps, though he's also on the older end.

    Dook wasn't an elite program when Coach K got the job.

    Beard perhaps...but I think Duke will hire from "with-in".

    Says who? They played for a title in '78. Seems a lot of people forget how good of a program Duke has historically been. And that was before K.

    Duke is a completely different monster now from when they hired K.

    Itís not like they were bad before K though. Duke was one win away from being in the Glory Road game and lost another championship under Bill Foster to Kentucky in 78.

    They were a good program when K took over. But they were not elite. They couldn't basically handpick their guy from all but about 10 coaches back then. Now they can, and there's no reason for them to take a risk on an unproven coach from Army (or Harvard or Marquette or Arizona State or Central Florida) this time around.

    The game has changed...particularly the NCAAT. But Duke was a commodity before K arrived.

Moving forward White has proven he can go toe to toe with the big boys and win and he's not going to slow down. He's proven to be a far superior recruiter to Donovan (though he's a long way from Billy in terms of in game offensive coaching). Giving him the keys to a program like Duke would undoubtedly result in Duke not missing a beat in recruiting and maintain that program as one of the elites. I think by the time K steps down White will have the resume to match up to anyone elses who goes for that job. Having his father as the AD will only help Dukes chances of prying him lose from UF, which is what I'm worried about, not the opposite.
    We're not getting Blackshear. He's looking to stay in the draft. There's another transfer were looking to add named Andre Allen, who is raw but has athletic ability out the wazoo. Mann and Lewis will be awesome but Omar Payne looks like he's a year away. Next year's success is predicated on grabbing a grad transfer big who can make an immediate impact and we haven't done that yet. Should still be better than last year, though...and this assumes Nembhard pulls his name out of the draft.

    K was proven. Bob Knight disciple.

    Duke wanted K because he was a Knight guy.

    He wasn't proven. He was a promising coaching prospect. A lot of those guys don't work out. Dan Dakich and Jim Crews were once promising Knight disciples, too.
