Pitino was successful where had a huge amount of financial support in established Power 5 schools like Kentucky and Louisville. Long before Slick Rick arrived at those programs they had been a coveted destination for top ranked players because of both premier facilities and incredible fan support. He needs to land at such a school to be relevant. Does Iona have any qualities that would draw the type of player that would have Kentucky or Duke in their top five schools? I wouldn't worry about Pitino unless Rutgers or Uconn Seton Hall were a possible destination.

Would love to know your definition of what an Iona powerhouse would entail. Then of course I'd love to know your definition of a lot of things that you type on this site.

Outclass is the exact opposite of what Pitino will do

Even without the cheating, he's probably in my top five all-time coaches. He can teach anyone defense, so I think he'll have success right away. And Cluess has proven for a decade that if you can coach, you can take a bunch of lower-ranked kids and score 80+ there. They will be exciting.

But I think Fred and Matt have more to worry about than us over the next few months. Pitino needs half a team there as soon as possible.

Dear dee would you please be so kind as to explain what constitutes a powerhouse as they already go to the big dance on a regular basis. Will they become a top 25 team, will they start getting 4 and 5 star recruits on a regular basis ? Are kids going to be thrilled to play in the MAAC and favour bus rides to Manhattan College, Bryant, Marist etc over playing in a major conference and flying to the majority of their games.
Please enlighten me.
Thanking you in advance.

We're in excellent hands. If this year hasn't shown we made the right choice, not sure what would. Let Iona have Pitino, very happy we don't.

Expending any energy on the hiring of Rick P seems crazy to me. Perhaps he lands some transfers to our detriment occasionally, but Danny Hurley on recruiting trail seems a more logical & immediate threat. Even there, CMA will do fine. Good for Iona & their fundraising efforts, but no sweat here. “Coulda, woulda, shoulda” is waste of time.
