    Not going to happen. Why leave Michigan State when you have coached two teams to the Final Four or Championship Game two years in a row.

    This is this year's equivalent of the T Boone Pickens money from Oklahoma State.

    Double the salary? He would have to at least consider it. Plus with the relative weakness of the PAC 10...

    But I doubt he goes. He's proven enough for Michigan State to pay him whatever he wants. Plus he's a Michigan guy.
    When all is said and done more is said than done.

    He'll use it as leverage to get more money from MSU, but he isn't going anywhere.

    I once saw a copy of Izzo's contract online. When everything was factored into the equation (salary, bonuses, shoes, media deal, vehicles, annuities, etc...), he was making something like $11 million per year.

    He must have punted on Oregon's offer, because it sounds like their man-crush has moved to Orlando Tubby Smith at this time (AD connection).

    As an Oregonian I have to say the U of O's athletic department is way out of control.

    That's who it was always rumored to be to begin with.

    Heh. The last time Altman was going to move somewhere he took the Arkansas gig and then changed his mind a day later and went back to Creighton.

    He's lucky he got the second chance. I doubt he'll change his mind this time.

    I'm not sure a guy has ever gone back to his original university and had the same level of success once he went back like that.

    I'm thinking of Dakitch going back to Bowling Green and Altman going back to Creighton.

    I can't believe he said that, even if kidding.

    Help stamp out, eliminate, and do away with redundancy.

    And Greg McDermott gets out of Iowa State - where he was probably going to be fired sooner rather than later - and takes the Creighton job.

    Does Oregon even have an athletic director? I think the lack thereof was one of the problems they had in finding a new coach as other candidates may not have wanted a job where they did not know who their boss would be.
