I guess I would be shocked if there was not this level of interest.
1. He is a native New Yorker
2. He recruited NY well in the past.
3. He coached the Knicks
4. He won an NCAA championship with 2 different schools.
5. He took the smallest BE school to the Final Four.
6. He has a great coaching tree.
7. He was hired by a local school.
8. He was hired by a fellow Catholic school.
9. Every move he makes will be thrust in our face given the proximity of Iona to SJU.
10. Iona is getting games on our supposed home court, MSG.
11. He is reaching out to many of the same kids that we are desperately hoping to get commitments from, please see the Kyle Cuffe Jr. thread.
12. General paranoia of being a St. John’s fan.
13. He has secured as many commitments to Iona in the last 2 weeks as our staff has obtained in the 11 months that CMA has been on the job.

Those are the immediate positive reasons as to why the Rick Pitino thread has only generated 35 pages so far, which thread will only continue to grow in length for as long as he is at Iona College.
I will not discuss his character or past transgressions which have been repeatedly documented, and I have no interest in rehashing same.
Other than 1 or 2 posters the majority of the posts have been very civil and well thought out.

I am delighted with CMA as our coach and would not trade coaches with Iona, but I can see how Slick Rick would and will continue to generate a ton of interest on a message board, especially this board.

What a hoot. Just checked out Pitino's coaching record and he was 2 - 4 with Hawaii in '75 - '76...his only losing tenure as coach in his career!
Who knows what he'll achieve at Iona but he'll likely succeed and be copy for the NY Media, which back-in-the-day would've gnawed at me, worrying about St. John's.
Not anymore.
We're in great hands with CMA.

He is definitely a lighting rod, I’ll give him that much. This thread will wind up being hundreds of pages once the season starts.

If you think this thread is bad, wait until Fordham hires Jim Calhoun.

One reason this thread is so long...there is really not much to report on in the sports world right now.
