I’m just curious here, where is it not all about the money?Sources told ESPN that Arizona had been considering a contract extension for Miller, but the Board of Regents would not approve due to the ongoing NCAA issues.
So the athletic department at Arizona is just as bad as Kansas. It's all about the $$$$$. Unlike Kansas though at least the Board of Regents at Arizona have some morals.
Arizona has fired basketball coach Sean Miller, sources told ESPN. Arizona had been ensnared in the 2017 federal investigation into corruption in college basketball.www.espn.com
LOL. I know you are joking and being facetious. My reading of the tea leaves is that the Hurley brothers won't put themselves in any situation where they are competing directly in conference, for sure, or out of conference, for recruiting. They might compete for recruits a little (I didn't look at ASU roster and where they come from), but it would only intensify if the Hurley brothers were even on the same coast let alone conference.Gotta think UA makes a run at our Danny Boy. Chance to have Hurley v. Hurley as in-state rivals. Dad Hurley can join the rest of the retirees living the life in Arizona.
(Not really. But someone at some point was going to try and make a case for DH to go to Arizona).
"without having to hustle so hard on the recruiting trail"that might be the key qualifier. you don't voluntarily leave a school after winning a chip, unless it's to your alma mater maybe, and i'm not sure that's ever happened. but few still hasnt won....
i'd go to zona and bring hallis and chet to turbocharge that rebuild. it has the second best history after ucla in the conference. few would run the PAC for the next 2 decades without having to hustle so hard on the recruiting trail, all while earning 10 million per year.
but thats just me, dont think it fits his personality, unless losing to baylor rewired his brain.
he's still losing out on guys to the likes of duke e.g. paulo banchero and spends a lot of time recruiting internationally. think that would stop at Zona. they have everything conceivable going for them. weather, coeds, facilities, and on and on. he'd be capable of pulling in five 5*s a year like calamari used to, if that's what he wanted. it would just make his life that much easier."without having to hustle so hard on the recruiting trail"
I don't know what Few makes now and how much more Arizona could offer him so that could definitely be a determinant for Few leaving if they go after him. But as far as recruiting goes, it seems like the heavy lifting is done, no? Gonzaga is able to get top tier recruits better than most Power-5/Big East schools. When Gonzaga was the Cinderella that everyone loved in 99 and early 2000s, they could only dream of getting a recruit like Jalen Suggs (#5 according to ESPN)-it was a pipe dream. Next year they might get the #1 overall and they already got Hallis who is #13, I believe.
