Fired Bill Carmody: Let's start with this

Let's start with this

there will be oh so much to talk about in the next few weeks and months. but honestly the first thought that came into my head after NU blew it was this: "Kyle Rowley will be in the motherfucking NCAA tournament and Northwestern, again, will not."

that got me thinking about all the NU transfers whose teams made it to the dance. feel free to add anyone I forgot in the comments; I'm sure I'm missing some.

Kyle Rowley - St. Mary's
Steve Lepore - Wake Forest
Brody Deren - Creighton
Rex Walters - Kansas

3/8 edit: thanks James. how could I forget Ed McCants? he led UW Milwaukee to the Sweet 16 in 2005.

3/9 edit: yes, coaches count too. KO went in 2008 with Arizona and 2011 with USC.

Does this make St. Mary's a high HIGH major now?

I'm pretty sure Nikola Baran played in the Division 2 NCAA tournament for Rollins College.

At one point, AC thought of transferring to the Fire Bruce Weber site, but decided to stick it out here.

As AC tweeted the other day: At least Carshitty has a top 12 Big Ten recruiting class coming in next year as he reverts to the mean of his twelve year .327 Big ten winning %. And no, that is not a fucking typo, in 12 fucking years we have had a coach who wins Big Ten Games at a lower clip than Brian Huffman kicked good field goals or Dan Kreft scored with the girls of Pi Phi after feeding them roofie cocktails and letting them rub his head. Shit, AC's NU GPA was higher than Carshitty's big ten winning % (though to be fair, AC did graduate Phi Beta Kappa and Magna Cum Laude (and his dorm neighbors can attest that AC cums loudly), so there's that to debase all of your degrees).

The point is, Carshitty has won fewer than one out of three big ten games in a sample size that is now more significant than former AD Rick Taylor's waistline, so unless NU stats professor Beth Andrews is going to argue about heteroscedasticity (and AC can assure Professor Andrews that he is very heteroskedastic should she ever inquire about coffee), the data proves that Car-no-win-dy sucks at the one thing he was hired to do: Win Basketball Games.

Anyway, AC has been through all of it before, so he has very little to add, but the guy relies on fucking gimmick offense and defenses(tm) (yes, those clowns on lake the posts who are at least 5 FUCKING YEARS LATE on the Fire Carmody bandwagon have started to refer to the 1-3-1 and the princeton no-offense as "gimmicks" without giving AC his proper due, so AC must now trademark his insight), calls out of bounds plays that make less sense than people pretending to give a shit about Dance Marathon, and recruits worse than Ellen Degeneres at a NAMBLA convention.

But hey, if we win the NIT at least we will be #69 which will clearly make professor J Michael Bailey happy as Carshitty continues to take a fucksaw to the NU basketball program.
