    I agree. I'd guess Hopkins is kicking himself for not waiting another year. He'd have been almost a lock had he done so, but taking the UW job was the right move.

    Thatís my take from Pilchís profile too. But we should definitely consider him. So what if he could bolt for a Big Ten job? Wake coaches generally donít do that and even if they do, we can just hire another one.

Syracuse will back up the brinks truck to bring him back, he was always their top recruiter and Boeheim's top student of the 2-3 zone.
    Washington is undefeated in the Pac-12. He has them competing for a conference title this year.

    I'm not sure I'd leave Washington for Syracuse TBH, especially if I'm already proving I can pull in top 10 recruits there. Unless 'cuse can just pay a lot more b/c of all the attendance revenue and ACC Net $$

    I don't think Hopkins is regretting anything related to his move to Washington.

    He is building Washington into a solid, possibly elite program; he has confirmed that he can pull in elite recruits there and expectations there are reasonable. Plus winning in that conference is tit compared to the ACC. Hopkins has found a place where he is loved, and the coach he is being compared to is Lorenzo Romar rather than a legend like Wooden or even Boeheim.

    On top of that Seattle is a thousand times better place to live than Syracuse, and the UCLA program has proven to be a coach killer.

    Washington has a lot of money and the PAC12 has good TV deals. Add to that, he's a west coast guy.

    IDK Syracuse is nothing to thumb up your nose at:

    I've always kinda liked Washington. They were fun as hell to watch when they were good under Romar. Don't think Hopkins' style is as fun, though

    A branch of the Bill Self coaching tree is coaching Wake now. Not going too well.

    Working at a blue blood program doesn't necessarily give one the perspective of squeezing out some wins when you have less talent than the other team.

    The Pac-12 has the worst TV deal of all the power conferences. Their network isn't even carried by Direct TV. It has cost the conference millions of dollars.

    So, someone like Danny Manning?

    I assume he's referring to Associate Head Coaches rather than recruiting/position type assistants, but, to be fair, it's not specified.

    Also, we didn't take Danny Manning directly from Kansas... He was the head coach at Tulsa.

    So not really the same thing.

    Several don't. As recently as 3-4 years ago, even UCLA didn't go charter.

    UCLA just spent over $125M to renovate Pauley Pavillion. Oregon gets butt loads of money from Nike and Phil Knight. Stanford spent tens of millions to renovate their football stadium in one off season. USC is spending nine figures to renovate the Coliseum.

    They have money but don't seem to spend it.
