    Bill Frieder was the basketball coach at Michigan in the late 80s. He announced he had accepted a coaching job at Arizona State and wanted to coach through the NCAA tournament. Bo Schembechler who was Michiganís AD at the time famously said ďOnly a Michigan man will coach at MichiganĒ so he told Frieder to hit the road and promoted Steve Fisher and the rest is history.

    History shows that Bill was an absolute idiot...and the Sun Devils got what they deserved. RIP Bo.

    LSU isnít Ohio State or Alabama. They donít recruit nationally. They have a hotbed of talent there in the Bayou that if Napier goes to Florida he can sell recruits on playing in Louisiana twice a year during their tenure.

    As much as I hate to say it Florida should target Mark Stoops and I know their fans wouldnít be happy with it. Mullen has destroyed Florida from a recruiting standpoint and Stoops does have ties there. Problem is the fanbase wants to win and win now but at the same time Florida is nowhere near in the shape Kentucky was when Stoops took over. That said I kinda wonder if Stoops takes it if offered. He might be happy being the Kirk Ferentz of the Bluegrass.
    Iíve heard he has no interest in LSU. Supposedly the booster influence/control there is difficult to navigate and some coaches wonít even consider them.

    I mean, the coaches arenít being forced. There is no off-season with recruiting and program building and these schools arenít interested in delaying the process. Either way at the end of the day itís the coaches choice. Only way this would ever be addressed is if the NCAA made some kind of a rule, which would never happen.

    In regards to Napier-Florida Iím hearing thereís haggling over what/how many assistants would be coming with him. Not sure if this would end up being a deal breaker. I keep hearing heís the guy but then again, I was told it was Chip last time.

    Worrying, Frost dragging almost his entire staff to Nebraska probably set him back 2 years, Mullen and his devotion to "HIS" 4 guys led to his downfall.

    I understand your point. Yes there has to be a better way. Hold off recruiting for the month of the playoffs?
    Either way it could screw over the team for the playoffs and their own recruiting.

    Does Bo even meet the definition of “Michigan man”? His alma matter is Miami University…

    The signing period used to be in February. They moved it up to December. They aren’t going to change it again any time soon.

    There are some programs it REALLY matters for. If you are OSU or Bama and are replacing your coach, you have to get something in place early. If you are many of the other programs out there, get the right coach, mine the transfer portal, and build for next years class. Getting the right coach trumps the early signing period.

    I disagree with this notion but I completely understand it. Tubby left Kentucky basketball because there was pressure on him to can his assistants. All the faults he had, if the man had your back, he had your back.

    That said, I donít think Mullen would have been any more or less successful in Gainesville by holding over assistants or bringing in his own staff. Same with Frost but for different reasons. Mullens temperament and Frosts location are the biggest reasons for their downfall.

    It worked for Mullen in Starkville where expectations were lower. Frost though it doesnít matter. Moving to the B1G was a death sentence for Nebraska football and they are a ghost of their former selves regardless of who the coach is.

    I think the Gators should go get Lane.
