Monday morning coaching update

A few key items from around the Web regarding the MU coaching search:

That's the same Tracy Webster that played at Madison who did a pretty good job recruiting the Chicago area for the Illini before moving to Kentucky. It seems to me that Buzz would be just as good frankly.

If they are gonna go the assistant/recruiter route, just stick with Buzz. I don't see any advantage going outside if you are relegated to being a bottom-feeder at this point.

I would love Lowery. Plus, with every passing day, it seems apparent that we'll lose at least two recruits regardless, one of them being Taylor. If that's the case, get a proven winner here and bring in Lowery.

If we are going to lose the recruits anyway, can we get someone who can recruit a couple of big men?

I'm the biggest defender of TCs tenure, but obviously the inability to recruit big men has been his one weakness.

Let's get some odds going. My thoughts (which almost certainly are correct because I saw a rumor on the internet):

Drew 3:1
Williams 4:1
McKillop 8:1
Bennett 10:1
Miller 20:1
