It’s interesting
Shaka leaving Texas going to Marquette
IU still open and every fans second choice, Chris Beard is Texas’ #1 target

I think I get where Shaka's head is. Probably misses the VCU days where basketball was #1 and wanted that feeling again.

Shaka’s days are numbered at Texas. And olldflame makes a good point.

I think he saw the writing in the wall I’d wager a lot of things behind the flare up on the bench at the end of the season.

Shaka was fortunate to get this past season. If not for COVID, he was likely canned last summer.

Yes, Chris Beard is the clear frontrunner in Austin. $4M buyout is chump change if he wants to make the move. I get the Bobby Knight bonifieds having the Hoosier faithful intrigued. But if Beard goes anywhere it will be back to his alma mater in Austin.

He is certainly returning the Lady Horns to their former glory in rather short order.

While Beard is top priority in Austin, the other names I am hearing include Moser and Pitino(!?!).

Woodson to IU. Interesting moves. Don’t love it. Don’t hate it. Ties to IU Glory Days should help recruiting. I’m interested to see his staff. Possibly a coach in waiting situation? Calbert Cheney and Dane Fife were popular names but lack experience. They’d be great additions
