    Doug Gottlieb wants to coach KSU

    Coach Kansas St

    http://www.fannation.com/truth_and_r..._a11&eref=sihp

    Part of me hopes he gets it, not only because he won't be an analyst, but because he'd see how bad he'd suck at it.

    But I guess he'd at least be better at it than analyzing...

    Part of me hopes that Gottlieb gets the job so that we can see him fail. Another part of me wants to see him get the job so that he won't have time to appear on ESPN to sneer for 8-10 hours a day. It's a tough call.

    I think Gottlieb is a pretty good analyst, and I think he knows the game quite well and would make a good coach. He can be smug and he'll make controversial statements (which has become part of the gig, unfortunately), but he knows the game very well.

    If he does get it, I hope Duke puts them on the schedule so we can show him how "alarmingly unathletic" we are.

    Have not had time to research it yet, but heard on the Dan Patrick show this morning that Harrison Barnes was livid with Gottlieb for comments Gottlieb made about him after the Ohio game. Would love to know the details on that one..

    Doug said that Carolina would make the trip to St. Louis and then make the trip right back home to Chapel Hill. He was intimating that without Kendall Marshall it would be a short stay in St. Louis. Frankly, all he was doing was saying he expected Carolina to lose, but he was somewhat obnoxious about it (which is his way), and Barnes in turn made a comment to the media about Doug's comment, which blew the whole thing out of proportion.

    That's ok. Once Barnes is out of the NBA in a few years, he can join Gottlieb at KSU to start his illustrious career as an assistant coach.

    Or maybe a Big XII rivalry? Perhaps the Mayor of Ames will help out a fellow ex-Little Cyclone with an assistant coaching gig.

    I don't think we're giving him enough credit here.

    Does Gotleib have any coaching experience? If not, isn't it a bit presumptious of him to think he could land a head coaching job in the Big 12 without any experience?

    I think he would be a flop. I cannot imagine him being very effective on the recruiting trail, he has that type of personality that makes you just want to punch him....

    Having said all this, I would love to see it happen...

    It would be fun to see a guy who is remarkably nonathletic (I forget who I'm quoting) make judgments on athleticism of recruits.

    Read the first paragraph here and you'll get why "credit" is italicized.

    Some interesting tidbits from that wiki...

    "Although a heady point guard with a knack for getting the ball to his teammates, his shooting never matched his passing as he would finish with a career scoring average of only 5.2 points per game, a 37.9 field goal shooting percentage, a 23.6 three-point field goal percentage, and a 45.3 free throw percentage."

    Ha!

    and...

    "He then played for the Los Angeles Lakers in the NBA Summer League and then was invited to return to the Oklahoma Storm. However, he and new coach Kareem Abdul-Jabbar did not see eye-to-eye and he was released before the season began."

    Who the heck argues with Kareem???

    Kareem just couldn't coach perimeter players, because he is too big. Thought we'd all know that by now.

    Kareem is 7'2" or something. Not many people can see eye-to-eye with him. Badum-bum.

    it's a win-win. Gets him off the talking-head circuit and sets himself up for a humbling experience on a big stage.

    Got 'em. I'm not sure if K-State would get all the calls, but you know they'll always be looking to take a charge.
