    Saw an article last week that said the decision will be made before the McDonald's All-America game which is March 28.

    Jordan and his entire family make their official visit this weekend, per that article.

    I think it's between the Cajuns and UCLA.

    Don't think Mike was saying Marlin wouldn't take the Ole Miss job, or any better job. He's only saying the obvious Marlin is a little long in the tooth without a great resume.

    I recently heard that the Ole Miss job is a very low level SEC job. Again Ole Miss might have a hard time getting the young high profile coaches, so they may try a coach who's clean, with recent success. I'd think he'd need to at least reach the round of 32.

    I agree but I don't know what he would consider the "right opportunity". I am fairly certain he will not leave for another mid major job. As the years go by however, the chances of him getting a major job lessen simply because of his age.

    I think you will hear something within the next couple of days about Dion Brown being inducted into our Hall of Fame this weekend. That event can be promoted. I wonder if that will be discussed on Coach Marlin's radio show tonight at Pete's. I know Jay hopes to make that show a celebration of sorts to honor the regular season championship. Having the younger Brown make his official visit the same weekend as his father's induction makes sense from a logistics stand point. Hope we can draw a good crowd Saturday night so as to increase our chances of signing the younger Brown.

    If we win Thursday night, I think we get over 6k for the last game .. It also helps that baseball is slumping I know a few people that are skipping out on Houston and heading to Bball instead

    Dion was actually named to the UL Hall of Fame last fall but was unable to attend the Homecoming football game. So they are celebrating it this weekend.

    Count me in as one who originally was going to Houston

    Still a good move on the university's part on planning the induction event around an official visit

    Shareef O'Neal, Shaquel O'neil's son who just decommitted from Arizona, just committed to UCLA. With the fact that Dion Brown's son Jordan was interested in UCLA, how does this affect us, with the recruiting of Brown?

He may stay simply because other programs are now looking for someone younger than he. See LSU and Will Wade for example.
    ...and he may want to stay because he finally has a team clicking and listening to him. He had a good base. I think this next recruiting class will say a lot and if he can grab another solid transfer.

    Do they play the same position? If no, he may want to play alongside another big-time recruit.

    It's hard to speculate when we don't know what he is looking at in a school. The fact that he is considering us at all says maybe a chance to win a NC isn't a consideration.

    Maybe following in his dad's footsteps means enough to him to trump everything else. We definitely can't compare facility or tradition wise with UCLA.

    California and Nevada may also be players for Brown. They are both much closer to his home than UCLA. Like us, Nevada is having a good year as a mid major.
