I talked about this in the thread about Barnes leaving Texas...might be an explanation why Jake signed that big contract: to dispel any talk about him leaving for Minnesota.

didn't stop Steve Alford a few years back.
signed a 10-year extention with New Mexico on a Wednesday, then took the UCLA job on that Friday.

Not saying that Jake would necessarily do that sort of thing, just reminding that that sort of thing happens in collegiate coaching.

Steve Alford also intimidated a rape victim using a 'spiritual adviser' employed by the basketball program.

He and Jake are in different galaxies in regards to ethics and morals.

Not to mention that there's just a little bit of difference between leaving for a middle of the road Big Ten program and leaving for one of the most storied programs in the history of college basketball, regardless of Alford's moral standing (which sucks by the way - he's a slimebag).

He was referring to when he left New Mexico, but yes you are right about the rest.

All the same I done think us Panthers should be happy if the Minnesota job comes open. That kind of gives me some worries but it's the way I am.

Yeah I see, sorry for that, my brain struggles sometimes.

On a side note I am struggling to see the interest in Richard Pintino. He was hired at Minnesota after really not doing much in his coaching career. I mean I get that his dad is a good coach but I don't see how he has proven himself.
