I watch them and I think he would be a terrible fit and then look and its a 9 point game.

It would not surprise me to see Calhoun retire but since UConn are on double secret probation, I doubt Smart would go there.

No, he wears either a blue or white shirt all the times I've seen him and that tie had red in it too.  Derrick Rose wore orange Nike Air Force 1's on his visit to AH.

I also read tonight that it was the same tie he wore during last years run.

And for further proof here he is cutting down the nets last season with the same tie.  So I think we can throw the "orange tie sending messages" theories away please.

Great coach. Wonder if he would implement the same system. Kind of gimmicky, but it could work with the right athletes.

Yeah thats the big question.  Especially what happens the 2nd or 3rd time through the B1G when every coach has had a chance to see it.  kinda like NW with the Princeton system.   

But college ball ultimately comes down to what players can you get.
