Selden seems like he's been around forever because a lot of people expected him to be one and done and he didn't play up to it. I remember before their freshman years people trying to look smart were loudly insisting that he was actually better than Wiggins.

Selden has been really inconsistent and also had some injuries including a meniscus. He can fly and he can shoot but he doesn't have the quickness to be an NBA shooting guard and he's too short to be a 3.

He has "overseas" written all over him.

Whereas if I was describing Wiggins' athleticism the best word would probably be "Olympic", considering his talent and his bloodline.

Doug Gottlieb getting hired to coach anything, much less an actual decent program, would be the most hilarious thing.

I have no idea. It's a grim place for that program.

Their wishlist is Sean Miller or Archie, but I don't think either is happening. Willard at Seton Hall is a Pitt alum so I guess that's the most likely big name.

After that it's an assortment of mid-major coaches so you might as well put a name in a hat and pull it out.

Pitt isn't going to shell out the money needed to pry Sean Miller away from Arizona.

Speaking of delusions, Pitt's SB Nation site offered up this burning take:

quote:

Andy Enfield - Remember Dunk City? Well here is the mastermind. Enfield coached one of the more memorable Cinderella stories ever with the 2013 Florida Gulf Coast team that made the Sweet 16. He has since taken the USC job and in three years took them from a 14-18 team to a team that made the tournament in his third season.

So would Enfield come here? Possibly. Enfield is a Shippensburg, Pennsylvania native, so if there would be any reason to come to Pitt - it would be the connection to his home state. Although he lives in Los Angeles right now, so a Northeast winter may not be something misses at all. An intriguing name nonetheless.

And an otherwise good season by the Cocks comes to a horrific end thanks to Georgia Tech. Missing five (FIVE) players and the disappointment of the NIT was just too much to overcome, I guess. I'm still pleased with where we are developmentally, but if we lose all five of those suspended players, we could suffer a 2-3 year setback. Never a dull moment when you follow SC basketball!

"Dull" would be almost a relief, honestly. It's been nothing but a steadily increasing inferno for the past seven or so years (this season excepted, though this finish has potential to dump a fresh round of accelerant on the embers).
