What happened the last time he was here as an assistant. I can remember a preseason basketball tipoff a few years ago where he was introduced as a coach (under LE I think). As I recall he was back here to finish his degree and was going to do some coaching. I don't think I heard anymore about it during the season that year.
I think Jeff is handling it better than Nick Nurse. I don't like how Nurse is putting ISU in a position to look even worse if he does not actually get thru the interviews today or he decides not to take the job. I know it is hard to look worse, but I would have liked it if Nurse waited until he took the job to talk about it.
Just seeing the picture of Jeff makes me want him on the bench.
If Danny Manning is good for KU, then Jeff Grayer is good for ISU.
Grayer has as many accolades as Manning except the Natl Championship.
The big difference is that KU wasn't desperate enough to make Manning an assistant with no coaching experience. It took Manning four years to earn the right to be called an assistant.
Seems like a lot of fluff and window dressing to me. I hope behind the scenes this is all part of a master plan and not a bunch of knee jerk reactions. GMacs track record begs to differ.
I would prefer to hire a bunch McDonald's All-American Dads as long as their sons came along. I don't think there would be a drop off in coaching and we would improve talent. Who knows, they may even stick around.
I regret how pessimistic I have become but in lieu of the current recruiting woes it's getting hopeless. My gawd, we have gone from hoping Harrison Barnes would be in this class to losing Bo Barnes to Hawaii. I mean are you freaking kidding me?
