Would we be interested in James akinjo still if he wanted out? I know he can lead , pass and play d but can he stroke it?
Who else is on the grimy listMakes me think something is going on. Roy retires out of the blue, now Miller finally fired. Seems strange to me, but could just be coincidence.
The article is still up on the ESPN web site.ESPN reported that a few years back but never provided any proof and nothing has surfaced. Most think they got the reporting wrong (Schlabach).
Difference is Dawkins and Richardson on wiretap talking about what Miller said (hearsay) vs. Miller himself (evidence). The latter is what ESPN reported and has not been corroborated.The article is still up on the ESPN web site.
FBI wiretaps intercepted multiple conversations between Arizona basketball coach Sean Miller and sports agent Christian Dawkins in which Miller discussed a $100,000 payment to ensure star freshman Deandre Ayton signed with the Wildcats, sources told ESPN.www.espn.com
Others have that information also.
Former Arizona assistant Emanuel "Book" Richardson was heard on a recording saying coach Sean Miller was paying Deandre Ayton $10,000 a month.www.usatoday.com
Amid seven wiretapped conversations played in court Wednesday there were multiple inferences of Miller himself personally paying Ayton.www.sportingnews.com
How is that crooked coach at LSU still employed?
Dude been blatantly stealing / paying players for years including the diminutive PG kid out of New Haven that UCONN wanted / needed several years ago.
Look at it this way, you were well prepared if the judge wanted to see your briefs.Oof. I'm a sweaty bastard--even moreso when I was 40+ pounds heavier--and having air-conditioned car seats is something I now consider essential.
Obviously that won't save you with the flu though.
On a somewhat similar note, once I was wearing my finest wool flannel suit for a major argument in federal court, which my then-major client was attending with me. The court is around a 3/4 mile walk from my office and I was loading up one of those pull carts with my lit bag and a box of exhibits. As I was bending over to secure the bungee cords, the seat of my pants split clear through. 12"+ of boxer briefs, ass and thigh showing. I looked at her and said "My jacket should cover it from behind, and she (the judge) will never see it from the front. So you're the only one who knows."
One of the stranger arguments I've had. Was hard to feel comfortable. Won half and lost half, which was probably the right outcome in any event.
Damon Stoudamire is a nice fit to coach in Tucson. He’s currently at Pacific and has a .480 record over five years, 32-19 over his last two seasons.
The WCC to P12 is a natural jump for a coaching climbing the ladder. Would be cool to have a qualified alum take over the helm and I could imagine Wildcats fans to love that hire.
I had the same thought as you earlier in the offseason, but I think part of it is there aren't a lot of obvious candidates of note. Yeah, you're a big time basketball program, but are you really going to be able to poach a good coach from a P5 football school? You gonna outbid Alabama for Nate Oats? Arkansas for Musselman? These also-ran football schools have started ponying up and prioritizing coaching.This obsessions schools have with hiring former players or assistants, to the point where Arizona's list includes a guy who has done OK as a mid-level WCC coach, a high school coach, a lousy NBA coach who probably committed assault, and Josh Pastner, is absurd. You're Arizona. You're a big-time job. Go out and hire a top coach. Why are you limiting yourself? This offseason has been utterly bizarre. So many schools passing on proven head coaches so they can hire an assistant they know. Basically every serious program except Marquette, Texas, and Utah has punted this offseason, and there have been a lot of open jobs of note.
