Sounds like Iona may be a more natural fit for Book.

SJU doesn't have to be the first spot on Book's redemption tour.

Beginning to sound like the Mike Rice to St. John's story part deux.

Pretty sure if he had a college career again, and was around a guy who's been happily married for decades, it would do wonders for his outlook on life.

His marriage fell apart because he cheated on his wife, and his career felt apart because he cheated at his job. If you read the quotes in the article, it also sounds like he's having trouble finding his own identity. Listen, I'm all for giving second chances, and we can agree to disagree on the topic, but that article strikes me as someone who probably could use some time away to work on his mental health. I don't believe it's in the best interests of our basketball program to basically rehabilitate him here while he's also expected to do a high level job.

I believe it's OK to not be afraid to take chances. It seems like we sit back way too often because we don't want to be the first program to give someone a shot at redemption. I think if we wanted Shoes, we should have tried to get him 10 years ago. I think there are better, more exciting options out there.

I'd say they are pretty thrilled with their Pitino hire so far, right?

Whatever happened to that young NY-based AAU coach who had ties to Duke who everyone was huge on joining Mullin's staff before everything went kaput?

I’m not a moral high ground guy, but this is moot with Book. SJU won’t move on this IMO.

Book ain't happening.  You guys are going to waste page upon page debating something that has ZERO chance of happening
