College hoops I only follow UT and Saint Louis U, and so I remember Smart's run at VCU. I did catch their horrible 1st round loss in this year's NCAA. I did not recognize either the style of play Texas played compared to his VCU teams or the fact that he has hair...at VCU he shaved his head. While I won't really watch how he does at Marquette during regular season it will be fun to see if he has better success if they get in the Tourney.
I think CLEARLY SS is getting out of town as soon as possible. Probably not fired technically but he never won the way Texas envisioned him winning. If they'll fire the football coach the way they did...and fire Rick Barnes the way they did...then SS is getting ahead of the proverbial curve.
