    • Why would a power 5 conference hire Jake at this point? Losing record the last 5 seasons, and would bring the coveted Cedar Falls/Waverly recruiting pipeline with him. Hard to see a scenario where him being hired at a big money school can be sold to a fanbase right now, and I love Coach Jake but come on.

      • The only way I see Jake moving to a P5 job (or the like)

        - Replacing someone at Creighton
        - Taking a dramatic pay cut at a historically bad basketball school (Vanderbilt, Pittsburgh, TCU, DePaul, etc.)
        - Suddenly finding a way to string 2-3 significant NCAA runs together

          Minnesota wanted him last spring before they realized Ben Johnson would take the job for half of what every other Big Ten coach is making.

          I know it gets totally forgotten because of COVID but we were 26-5 and one of the last few in or out two years ago and we've been pretty damn good this year when we've actually got our entire roster.

            I understand the thought on recruiting but it has me wondering how much of it is being dictated by Administration due to the lack of reciprocal tuition (Farley used to mention this all the time)

            This could also be part of why Jake’s name floated around last spring.

              Baloney. Minnesota wanted nothing to do with it, due to him being a has been (I say, a Never Was).
              Which winning percentage is better: 61% or 65%?
