He's in the sweet 16 and has a fantastic class coming in. But yeah, he's leaving for a rebuilding job at a crap school! Makes plenty of sense.

Unless Brad Stevens starts doing cocaine there is no way he even looks twice at the NC State job over Butler.

Here are the things I know about the Miller search.

1. Miller's agents and NC State have been talking about a potential coaching change since January when it was apparent there was going to be a change at NCSU. I have no clue if there were terms set up or not.

2. Greg Swaim (apparently connected to Doug and Bob Gottlieb) has put on his twitter page that he is hearing Sean Miller to NC State is close to happening. I'm assuming the reason he isn't saying its "a done deal" is because he wants to protect his credibility as well as protect himself if Arizona does something ridiculous like win a national title in which case I think its safe to say Miller will stay. This is the same guy who called Mike Anderson to Arkansas and BCG to Texas Tech the day before both of those guys interviewed. He has also called Buzz Williams to OU, which I think could probably happen as well.

So I don't know much but I do think that a guy quoting Bob Gottlieb (Doug's very connected father) has more credibility than the average joe schmo.

Here is my opinion and stuff I've heard

I think that there are a lot of big names being floated out there for this search but I think that Sean Miller is the only one that holds any water. I heard last night that Rick Barnes is still on the list and I can only assume that he will be interviewed now that he is out of the tournament. I don't think that Texas fans were happy with his end of the season and I can't imagine the heat he is feeling with another second round exit.

So everyone on here touting Arizona as this "dream job" lets just be clear that it wasn't a "dream job" for Sean Miller. Like I said earlier, he is an east coast guy and it took sweetening the pot twice for him to take the Arizona job. So, I'm not saying he will take the NC State job or not. What I am saying is that the people out there that think he won't even think about it have zero clue as to what they are talking about. Unless he wins a national title then he will definitely be thinking long and hard about it.

Larry Brown is too damn old to be coaching in college (coaching in general) again. State needs to hire someone that can come in and build their program back the glory days and that may take a few years.

Larry Brown is too damn old to be coaching in college (coaching in general) again. State needs to hire someone that can come in and build their program back the glory days and that may take a few years.

Basically, where the LB rumors are coming from are that he was recently featured in an article stating that he wants to come back and coach college basketball again. He said his selling points to counter his age would be that his influence would bring in an all star cast for his assistant coaches and one of those assistants would end up taking over the team after he retired.

IMO he is targeting his old job...UCLA. That is the only job out there that would make any sense for him to go back to IMO if Ben Howland were to be fired. IDT he wants any part of NC State. If he did then I'd welcome him but lets face it...He's a Tar Heel.

If State were to hire Barnes, I would just hate them that much more. I can't stand that guy.

My most hated coaches:

1) K

2) Calipari

3) Barnes
