    mizzou is to Miami as UCLA is to Florida. Mizzou is not a great job and w/ all you discussed as far as taxes, location, etc... why would a coach leave for Missouri?

    UCLA is still a better job than UF, right now UF is a better program b/c they have a better person leading their program but Donovan would find recruiting a heck of a lot easier at UCLA and he would be going to FFs somewhat consistently.

    Then why aren't the current coaches at UCLA finding recruiting fairly easy? They seem to be doing a failry mediocre job at it.

    Why was Ben Howland fired? Why was Howland fired after winning the outright PAC12 title? Five Final Fours in 37 years. Howland responsible for three of those. Why does UCLA still have this belief that they can win championships like this is the John Wooden era lol. Who wants to work under an athletic department that operates in such a manner? They're bringing themselves down. They're bringing the value of the job down.

    Also, I think Frank Haith was willing to take any job to get out of Miami because he knew the **** storm was coming quickly. You do have to weigh all options, taxes, locations, etc. Missouri's state income tax isn't as bad as California and the cost of living in Missouri is much cheaper than that of Florida. Cost of living in California is thru the roof and far above what the cost of living in Florida is...on top of outrageous income tax.

    Howland recruited pretty damn well, he got the #1 recruit in the nation this past year, NBA rosters are littered w/ UCLA players- quality ones- since he went there.

    Howland was fired for other reasons, he had some spats w/ coaches in UCLA hotspots for recruiting and it affected recruiting the last few years but overall he brought in a ton of talent. Much more than he ever had at Pitt.

    Outside of last season, UCLA isn't recruiting as well as Florida.

    You'd think with UCLA being a better job than Florida, they'd get better players.

    If Larkin stays, it's the Canes' trophy to lose.

    so let's assume Larkin returns, tell me about UM's returning players? I'm anxious to see the same thought process you use to evaluate football, I am eager to learn new things about CBB from you!
