A number of posters alluded to a mystery candidate who would thrill us and that Hurley and Cluess were mere feints. Time for him to emerge from the shadows. Or maybe there are some other Duke alums who are looking for a raise from their current schools and their names can be floated.

For the record I would love to see Pitino and would strongly support Cluess. At this point I might even welcome Norm back. Mostly I would l like to see a decision and not a soap opera.

I don't think there is one. The fact that TC hired an agent for the first time in his life this week tells me all I need to know.

It that's the case, and I am inclined to agree, this has been nothing but a big tease and a needlessly drawn out one at that.

Probably hanging out with that mystery recruit the Norm supporters were always talking about.

Soap operas provide more fodder for those on this board.

Marillac.

You think it is a coincidence that he is this anti-Cluess?

It's Louie C! My sources tell me that he is coming out of retirement to turn this mess around. Remember, you heard it here first. B)

I speak with no firsthand knowledge, but I stand by my prediction that a 30-year veteran of Duke did not come here to hire a guy from Iona.

The idea that this search is limited to Hurley and Cluess is also laughable.

Well, since this Snafu on Monday and the comments of many on Hurley , Cluess, etc , it’s time to throw another candidate into the mix . And, it doesn’t matter if there is even a remote chance of getting him here . As things have turned out , Hurley was going to spurn us anyway , despite the Cragg connection . Cragg doesn’t look good at this point in his management of the Mullin departure and now search for a new Coach .. If Mullin has stayed , it’s very possible that Simon, Heron., Trimble , Figgy would have not opted out , in various forms . But , since the more vocal here , thinking they represent the majority of St John’s fans , which they don’t by the way , started on their dump Mullin Campaign , it became a Snow Ball downhill . Even Ponds alluded to the nastiness of those on these various sites . The Best St John ‘s Player in the last 20 Years had to endure the 5 cents comments from those in the seats , who had no idea how his Coach wanted him to play this year . Less Scoring , more playmaking . But , back to Coach Candidates . Every time we have had to search for a new Coach , his name was always in the mix , just not now and why ? It was rumored that 1 of our Monied Alums had agreed to fund this Coach’s compensation , if he took the job . He didn’t . But , times are anew and do change . Sometimes . Running Pitino’s name up the flag pole was interesting for a few days and then , died the way it should have from day 1 . Pope Francis would be our next Coach before Rick . Anyway, this mystery Candidate is likely beyond our reach but , given the names some have thrown into the ring , why not his ? In fact , I was surprised no one even threw his hat into the Ring . Billy Donavan has been on our Radar for 20 years . Has currently has become a Millionaire many times over with stops in Florida and Oklahoma City and would possibly think twice about a return to NY ? Surely , he can be contacted , even if a quick no is the answer . Think about it , Donavan was just mentioned for the UCLA job , and either turned it down or the Bruins were already content with Mick Cronin , a very good Coach at Cincy . Maybe Donavan and family have enough of Oklahoma and the NBA ? Why not St John’s ? That’s not a knock on Cluess , who is a Alum and also a very good Coach . If he is selected , I think we should support him 1000 percent and stop with the sideline negativity . But , why not approach Billy one more time ? All he can do is say No. And , he passes the Ethics test that Pitino doesn’t . But , I also have a even further mystery candidate . Mike Brey of Notre Dame ! It’s clear the Irish don’t fit well Basketball wise into the ACC and while Brey is not in danger in South Bend , he might look at a return to the BE as a welcome challenge . Why not? So there you have it , 2 possible Names that cost us nothing to consider .
