I was hoping Governor's State University had a basketball program looking for a head coach - Marty could apply there, accept the position, and let us Aces fans rejoice in unison.

I'll get to work on it...we have a swimming pool not 30 feet from the court. Would that be enough to incentivize Marty?

The same athletic director who hired Mark Phelps and Ray Giacoletti is still the AD. Drake fans are hoping and praying that the university president makes this pick, not the AD.


This may come back to bite me on Thursday but I didn't see a DU team playing their butts off for their coach vs Bradley in Des Moines on Saturday.

Rumor is in Springfield that MSU is going to try to go after Steve Forbes. I've heard they are supposed to announce their decision on Lusk by the end of this week. I've also heard some big booster has stepped up with the money for the buyout. Honestly I like what Drake's current interim coach has done with the team!

Yeah, if there's a search, he's not getting it.

Reminds me of Iowa State being all gung ho to hire TJ Otzelberger until the president stepped in and required a search. You knew TJ didn't have a chance.

Why would Forbes leave ETSU for the Valley? He's probably a year or two off from a P5 job.

He'd actually be a really good fit at MSU. It would be a large pay increase, and MSU fans will support a winner. It could turn out to be a really good gig.

I guess he might take it if he thinks he can win with the players coming back next year. I just don't see any way he's there for over 2 years.

Drake players held a meeting with the school president, lobbying for Rutter

I'm trying not to read too much into it, but if they met with him instead of the AD, does that mean they think he's the one who will make the hire?

I think he could be a nice fit, depending on his recruiting ability.

Offensively, you were much better with him using the same players
The problems came on defense....I think you just don't have the athletes, quickness to compete on this side of the ball.

Im not say Rutter SHOULDN'T get it...but listening to players who finished tied for last this season wouldn't be the wisest move ever. What are they going to do....leave??
