With two of our (cough) “rivals” having open HC positions; which is the better job, in the Boneyard’s humble opinion?
I agree. You could make a good argument for both sides. You will get more exposure at St Johns if you win because it is New York, its the Big East, and that still means something.Wash. Cincinnati has had a better run of things I'd say overall the last few years. St John's to me is a sleeping giant, but I dunno- i've been saying that for 20 years and nothing's changed, so i'm probably just wrong.
By a mile? I think its equally hard to win at both and the success of the program is coach specific. Cronin worked in Cincy. Not sure the next coach will. This idea that SJU has appeal to any local recruit is comical. Kids play nationally now in high school and AAU and going to a commuter school in Queens to play on FoxSports2 Isn't all that great. St. John's is a crutch that recruits fall back on as a last resort. So to is Cincy. Otherwise, Cronin wouldn't have agreed to be UCLA's 12th choice.SJU by a mile. The people that say Cincinnati are only saying that to bash the Big East.
agreee ceiling is higher....But you are a college team in a pro town. With a campus that really isn't all that. Their advantage was when they were allowed to give kids a stipend when there were no dorm roomsThe ceiling at SJU is higher. It's a more desirable location to recruit, the media attention there is huge if you win, and you aren't overshadowed by other in-state schools.
'plumb' job???? Does that mean that it comes our of a sewer????Not sure, but:
SJU has been a 'plumb' job forever. They haven't been good since then either. It's clearly not an easy place to win.
Multiple coaches have won at UC. Plenty of great midwest recruits out there.
