Seems too early to me, but there's plenty of talk that Howland is in trouble. He has the talent that he could turn it around, but UCLA would be a big fish in the market.

It's not too early based on how bad they've been for an extended period. This was supposed to be the year they turned it around with the monster class they brought in, but they've not been appreciably better. He had a great run there, but all the Reeves Nelson stuff last year didn't go over well at all and I could definitely see him being axed this year (his three-straight Final Fours was a terrific run, but they went 1-3 in those games and that ended 5 years ago).
It's also a tough year for them not to excel with the reopening of Pauley.
Probably too early, but who are some coaches that might be interested in that gig? Few, Dixon,?.......
I have a tough time seeing another Pitt coach. Almost anyone will listen to UCLA though.
The dude from Butler would be my guess... Stevenson??? (My memory is shot right now)
Live to love, love to live
Stevens. He's waiting on Duke to open, or so the current line of thought goes...
CBS has a whole list of guys who might need to watch their back, including Kevin O'Neill, USC, Mike Rice, Rutgers, Jeff Bzdelik, Wake Forest, Ben Braun, Rice, Herb Sendek, Arizona State, and, of course, Ben Howland, UCLA.
I agree on O'Neill. USC has always been the #2 team in LA college hoops, but with a beautiful, still fairly new on campus arena and USC's resources, he should be recruiting better. He does pretty well with his players, but the talent gap is ridiculous with all the local kids he could win over. USC may not overtake UCLA, just like UCLA won't overtake USC in football, but they should consistently compete for a tournament spot.
In this week's Good 'N Plenty, we address the Myck Kabongo suspension, talk about a storm brewing down south, hand out a few Christmas presents and also give you odds on which coaching casualty will fall first.
That seems like a totally fair list to me. I'd have to guess Howland is on the hot seat, but some of those other names (e.g., Bzdelik) are even closer to the blade.
