...not sure if Kennedy will actually up at UAB, but it would be fine with me...he's a very good coach, and was a Blazer. Also, keep in mind that UAB's basketball conference is about to get a good bit tougher with the 'merger' with the Mountain West, who got 4 teams in this year (not sure how they have fared thus far, tho...). So, that might make the position a bit more attractive - for the age of the program, it's got a pretty fair rep - 2 of our 4 coaches went to the final 4 (not with US, tho...although Bartow was 4-5 points away from it...)
Mike Davis is a 'solid' coach, but just never really seemed to get to the 'next level', and was not a very good tourney coach, be it bad luck, bad prep, or whatever... If the BOT allows (ugh), I think UAB has enough 'fat cat' boosters to up the ante for a new coach. We made a solid hire in football with McGee from Arkansas, so there's hope.
Kennedy would be fine, but TJ Cleveland - one of Mike Anderson's assistants at Arkansas, seems to be the 'fan fave' now, which hopefully would bring back the 'fastest 40' to UAB, as when Anderson coached there.
Kentucky will waltz to the Championship this year, but I would love to see Vandy make a bunch of noise, too... so far, so good on that.
Great site y'all have here... y'all did a great job keeping up with all the A&M - Mizzou stuff last year... should be an intersting next couple of years for ALL schools around the nation.
Keep up the great work!
