No interviews yet; men's hoop 3-3

Here's what I have after a day at Camp Mitch:

All my Christmas shopping done for the wife and the nugget that nobody's interviewed for the open FIU job yet. While this surely effects recruiting, I'm hearing the philosophy is they'd rather take the time to find the right coach for the next few years than snag the right recruits this year.

Meanwhile, as detailed in the previous post, other head coaching positions are being filled, both thinning the coaching talent pool for FIU and thinning the spots former FIU head coach Mario Cristobal might land that would ameliorate FIU's financial obligation to him. For what it's worth, according to Bowling Green Daily News' Chad Bishop, Western landed Bobby Petrino for $850,000 per year.

MEN'S BASKETBALL

With Louisville coach Rick Pitino watching, his son's FIU team evened its record at 3-3 Sunday by taking out Stetson, 82-79. Indicative of what can happen against when you use a high-pressure defense, FIU allowed 50.9 percent from the field, but forced 16 turnovers.

They've got a chance to nudge over .500 with a Thursday trip to Florida Gulf Coast. Then, next Wednesday, Dec. 19, it's the Oedipal Shootout at Louisville.

Don't know about the Oedipus Rex Shootout comment. You really come up with crazy anologies and comments DJN. Let's hope Richard isn't sleeping with his mother. Now that would Oedipal. But as I have said many times, you are a great writer. But where do you come up with your anologies? Not sure what's in your brain.

No interviews needed, that's why...

An SBC team paying $850k for one HC.... wow.

Now I've seen it all. Is that what we can expect to pay for Butch or someone with his pedigree.

Nutt anyone? http://www.sbnation.com/college-football/2012/12/10/3753092/houston-nutt-interested-in-fiu-coaching-job


From the famous Charles Robinson, Yahoo sports.

Housto Nutt.... Yeah, I can dig it!

It "Affects" not "Effects" recruiting.
