Dominoes and Roy

The dominoes have tipped.

Marquette head coach Tom Crean to Indiana. Western Kentucky head man Darrin Horn to South Carolina. Sean Sutton is out at Oklahoma State.

The sky is falling. Indiana has a legitimate head coach (finally) that can really recruit (minus the phone calls). I wonder if he'll bring his tanning bed to Bloomington with him. Crean is the tannest person in Milwaukee. I can promise you that.

Who gets the Marquette job now? I'm sure Anthony Grant, Virginia Commonwealth's head man, to be mentioned. Isn't he in the running for Cal, Sacramento State, NJIT, Western Kentucky, the New York Knicks, the Shamrock Rovers and the Marietta Baptist Wednesday night over 40 league, too?

Horn and his Hilltoppers danced their way to the Sweet 16 this year in the rather boring NCAA tournament. He will now take his march through March to Columbia. Finally, some personality in the SEC East.

The Sutton era is over at Oklahoma State. Billy Gillispie to Stillwater? That's one rumor. Expect that job to create a lot of buzz in the political convention, er lobby of the host hotel in San Antonio during the Final Four.

Over the next couple of weeks we'll be hearing about this coach looking at this job or that job. Every time I hear of coaches looking at jobs I think of good 'ole Roy Williams when he was at Kansas. CBS reporter Bonnie Bernstein asked Williams about North Carolina after his Kansas team lost in the NCAA tournament. His response was classic live television.

Roy's North Carolina Tar Heels, you know the ones he could give a shit about, are playing in the Final Four this weekend in San Antonio.
