I would place Miller's statement in the bull**** category.
If Altman was willing to leave Creighton for ISU, why has he not agressively pursued or taken any other opening since then. There have been numerous high profile coaching jobs open up in the past 4 years, some with better programs or more money than ISU.
I don't understand why Altman would be interested in the EIU job. From what I can tell, that would be a huge step down for Altman.... sort of like moving from EIU to New Mexico.
Creighton has been a contender year in and year out in a conference that is gaining more and more respect each season. They are playing in a brand new state of the art arena which they are doing a good job of filling. Omaha, while not the most glamorous of cities, has more going on than Iowa City. Basketball is the thing at Creighton, they don't play football. Creighton basketball is also the big thing down the road at University of Nebraska during the winter months, the Huskers don't really play basketball.
Why trade that for the disaster that is the EIU position?: A school that cares more about football, has an overinflated view of itself in the grand scheme of college basketball, and will drive out coaches that don't meet the unrealistic standards held by the fans.
