What's with the sudden know-nothing negativity train? He was an assistant at a mid major program now he is an assistant at a major program... who did you expect, John Calipari?

I like that he has ties to the geographic areas that we should have a strong recruiting focus on: Kansas City, Chicago, and Indianapolis. I like that he has ties to high school coaches and AAU programs in those areas. I like that he is younger in that we do not have that demographic on the staff currently.

First duty of business Al - make a call to LaLu and see what can be done to close the deal on Tugs. Ask about Tyga while you've got them on the phone as well.

We don't have a young coach on the team? What? Do you know Preston Murphy is employed by Creighton?

Good point. Murphy and Huss are practically the same age -- Murphy is 39 and Huss is 38.

Well I certainly hope HUSS coaches and recruits a hell of lot better than he played ! He sucked as a player as one of long line of CU big goons
going back to Bresnehan,Pyfrom,the Louisville transfer clown,and even Brody ! There's never anything dumber than a dumb big man in any walk of life !

Bottom line is that people in the coaching profession know one another or know of one another. Coaches know what they need to try to replace and maybe what needs to be strengthened in hiring a new assistant. People on the internet usually do not. So people can spout off about whether he's a good hire or not but unless people are college coaches the negative comments are likely baseless. The positive comments based on where people have connections at least provide something that might suggest areas where we are trying to gain a recruiting foothold. Lutz had connections in Texas and elsewhere. Huss has connections in Ill, and Ind and elsewhere. Texas may not be as sustainable over the long haul. We don't have a single player from Ill or Ind on our roster. Though it seems like every year we try to recruit someone out of a Chicago school. Currently we are after at least 2 Illinois players for 2018. Even the Huskers beat us in pursuit of a point guard from Chicago a couple of years ago. Call me crazy but I think strengthening our efforts in Chicago makes sense.
