Andy Katz runs this shit

Updated news from Andy Katz and ESPN--the deal is done, and Alford and Neal are going to New Mexico. The press conference, as predicted before, will be Friday.

It's not a big surprise anymore, granted, but it's still pretty interesting. Alford bailed out as soon as the AD started talking tough, and he's even taking a cut in pay and prestige to avoid being fired. The "basketball school" nonsense is just that; he'll regret that as soon as he sees UNM's budget hampered without a cash cow like Iowa football on it.

Now it's time to figure out who's coaching here. Buddy Light and I will be having intense team-building exercises* over the next few days as we try to decide who the candidates will be for the job. We haven't ruled out Coach K, P-Diddy, or Erin Andrews at this point.

Thoughts on the Tubby Smith to Minnesota deal?

He isn't taking a cut it pay. It will be the same amount. He is getting paid by the university $975,000 and with shoe deals, radio and tv deals it will equal out to about 1.2 or .3 million. The same at Iowa. Facts, facts
