Coaching search hilarity.

No, not too much yet, but much to come, I'm sure. Seth Davis, who covered himself in glory during IU's last coaching search (telling an Iowa reporter that Steve Alford to IU was 90 percent likely), suggested on CBS over the weekend that IU officials have significant interest in Notre Dame's Mike Brey. True or not (Brey is a solid-at-minimum coach and is squeaky clean, so the idea isn't crazy), it seems unlikely that Rick Greenspan has targeted anyone, let alone that word would have filtered down to Seth Davis. I'm going to try to keep track of these prognostications as the search transpires, and mock the confidently wrong after IU actually does hire a coach. While I will try to stay on top of it, please feel free to e-mail me or note in comments concerning any particularly interesting projections.

Beware of hiring ANY coach from Notre Dame. See what happened to the Penn State women's bball team this year after hiring our coach from Notre Dame. Be careful what you wish for.

I heard a rumor circulating about Scott Drew... just purely a rumor with no teeth to it at all. May be someone to add to the discussion.
