Interesting nobody has picked up on one paragraph in this story. Maybe somebody did in the MBB. Another story touting our coach as the next coach at ?_____ U. Oh, well, beats making this list I guess...


Ernie Kent (Oregon)
Why he's here: On the surface Kent doesn't belong here because he's made consecutive NCAA tournaments and just received a contract extension. However, the opinion in basketball circles has long been that Kent is one bad year away from getting moved so that Oregon can pursue Gonzaga's Mark Few, who is from Oregon and good friends with athletic director Pat Kilkenny. So what's my point? My point is that you have to wonder if the Arizona vacancy for which Few will be a candidate might make Kilkenny a little quicker to pull the trigger based upon the idea that he'll never get Few if he doesn't try to do it after this season. If so, that's not good for Kent. And don't pay attention to his contract extension. In the grand scheme of things, it means nothing.
