Football and basketball at Alabama are apples and oranges.

Of course but that still doesn't take away fact they have more money to throw around than us. Their football team almost get 100mil in nfl contracts every year alone. Pretty sure basketball get some crumbs off football plate

For the record, NBA has been allowing zone defense since 2001. The only illegal defense now is the three-seconds in the paint rule, which can sometimes lead teams to avoid the zone.

You know the more I think about it, Pettway seems to be in a very similar spot to Mick Cronin. Recognized recruiter and good coach...but only at the same school. I guess the difference is Pettway has done it under different coaches, but still at the same school. The mick left for Louisville and then got a shot as a head coach.

I would think Pettway has the same decision to be made here. Stay at Bama as an assistant and hope for your shot. Head to Cincy under a guy you are familiar with and have a shot to jump start your head coaching career if you have success.

Guess it depends on what Pettway wants for his career and which he thinks give him the best option to get there. But in coaching, staying put rarely seems to help you jump ahead as fast as those on the move.

Exactly, so UC could offer 315K and a title of associate head coach

If Brannen can lure Pettway that would be the biggest win of the offseason for UC. He is currently rated as the number one recruiter in the nation per 247 sports...Our administration needs to get extremely aggressive with hiring Pettway.

Be shocked if this happens. He will get paid.

Yea. He has to lure someone away.

If he literally just brings over his staff from NKU, we might as well just change our name to NKU.

We need one strong recruiter. But luring anyone away from the P5 is going to be insanely hard
