With Q out, it's time for a freshman to step up and make a name for himself. Ben Howland recruited y'all for a reason. Show us somethin
And now a few words from coach Ben Howland:
Here's the official release from Mississippi State with a quote from Ben Howland. .
From Malik to this, it's been an incredibly unfortunate two years for Ben Howland. We certainly still have hope, th…
Quinndary Weatherspoon's season-ending injury is a huge blow to Ben Howland's rebuilding efforts. 6-4 guard is a first-team All-SEC player.
Awful news for this young man. Heck of a loss for Ben Howland's Bulldogs.
Ben Howland will speak to the media 1:30 p.m. tomorrow
I think UCLA has also broken the 100 point mark more times this year than in the entirety of the Ben Howland era.
Pearl is killing it , so is Avery Johnson , and Ben Howland. Meanwhile Rick Barnes has his Golden Parachute & does…
Not sure there's been a hire more impactful over the past few years than Scott Stricklin's decision to hire Ben Howland. Beyond significant.

Kevin Stallings to PITT makes me feel great as a state fan with Ben Howland staying
Remember vividly when looked to replace Ben Howland, players top choice was Jamie Dixon. Current players want Brandin Knight.
Ben Howland made Pitt what it was, Dixon has slowly driven the stock price down.

Jamie Dixon hasn't been a great recruiting coach either. I doubt Sean Miller or Chris Mack come to Pitt. Archie or Ben Howland?
Lastly, screw Ben Howland. Dude left Pitt a liar, Dixon righted the ship right away in the best conference in America for 10 years
which some fans fail to realize is that they forget what it was like before Ben Howland and Jamie Dixon
Dixon started on 3rd base due to Ben Howland, don't make it seem like he hit a home run
If Dixon left and Pederson was still here, his short list would be Ben Howland, Larry Brown, Phil Jackson, Frank Haith, and Doug Collins.
Thanks to the work Ben Howland and Jamie Dixon have done, Pitt is in position to hire a proven coach.
Herb Sendek, John Calipari, Ben Howland, Sean Miller, Archie Miller, and--why not--George Karl are all very interested.:::
You know what is crazy? Exactly a year ago, UNLV almost hired UCLA's former head coach Ben Howland to replace Dave Rice.
Ben Howland said after their loss to Ole Miss on March 2 they should've probably gone Box & 1 vs. Stefan Moody. Alabama not heeding advice.
Sounds similar to Rick Ray/Ben Howland situation last year if I'm reading your TL right
it's a shame ben howland is not available this year for Memphis
Still can't believe that UCLA fired Ben Howland and replaced him with Steve Alford

Hope no one notices my claims that Hugh Freeze can only win w/ 5-stars, alongside my just-wait-til-he-has-the-talent support of Ben Howland.
is 15-15 this season. Remember when they got rid of Ben Howland? Yeah...
I'm more disappointed in Alford this year than I ever was with Ben Howland in ANY year.
Steve Alford's conference records seem to be a function of how many Ben Howland players are still in program.
There's no regrets on Ben Howland being let go. Just predictable because Alford isn't built for a historical powerhouse
Fun Fact: Ben Howland also has a 6-11 conference record this year. It's his first year w/perennial doormat Miss St.
Fun fact: the last time UCLA finished with 11 or more conference losses was 2003-04, when Ben Howland inherited a dumpster fire from Lavin.
if they have any respect for the program, Alford is gone after this year!!! Ben Howland had more success and look where he ended up
Ben Howland: "I can't remember seeing a player in my 20 years coaching score 43 points in a game. Moody was exceptional."
Tell Ben Howland Gavin Ware scores 28, he tells you MSU will win. What a performance by Moody with 43 points. Great game for the seniors.
Nice to see Ben Howland playing the long con by losing on purpose and letting Andy Kennedy keep his job 😎

Ben Howland had Reeves Nelson. Hardly the same. He also went to 3 consecutive final fours and was a great coach.
"He averaged 25 and 8.7, dropped 51 in one game...recruited by Ben Howland at UCLA."
As good as coach as Tony Bennett is, his use of timeouts baffles me. Up there near Ben Howland territory.

Gregg Marshall, Ben Howland, or Kim Anderson let's make it happen

You know Kim Anderson's name will be tossed around. Ben Howland, Gregg Marshall, Shaka Smart are a few longshots that I like
fans remember you're not a Destination job. Kim Anderson is way more likely than a Ben Howland or Shakka Smart

No, its cool, we'd rather have Frank Haith as our coach when a guy like Ben Howland is available.
The UCLA Bruins men's basketball program, established in 1920, owns a record 11 Division I NCAA championships. UCLA teams coached by John Wooden won 10 national titles in 12 seasons from 1964 to 1975, including 7 straight from 1967 to 1973. UCLA went undefeated a record 4 times, in 1964, 1967, 1972, and 1973. Coach Jim Harrick led the team to another NCAA title in 1995. Former coach Ben Howland led UCLA to three consecutive Final Four appearances from 2006–2008. On March 30, 2013, Steve Alford was named the school's 13th head men's basketball coach and led the Bruins to the Sweet 16 ! Way to Play Bruins!!! Practice makes perfect for next year!
Shake Smart out of the mix at Marquette. I'd be happy with Ben Howland
I must be stupid because I am blaming USF for what happened with Steve Masiello. The school paid over 60,000 dollars for a committee to come up with Steve Masiello as the best candidate for the head coaching job. Masiello was only at Manhattan for 3 years, and had a losing record for one of them. Manhattan was suppose to win the MAAC's regular season title this year but didn't. The major reason for the success that Manhattan had this year was based around three players that were at Manhattan before Masiello arrived. For a school that is in a major conference, USF did not aim very high in getting a new basketball coach. If Marquette and Wake Forest are interested in Shaka Smart, why isn't USF. Obviously, Mark Harlan has a relationship with Ben Howland, so why wasn't Howland a candidate. USF isn't a big time school for football and basketball because they are unable or unwilling to hire big time names for those jobs.
If Bruce Pearl has to much baggage for MU then Ben Howland will never be the coach either. Is anyone 100% clean?
Hope coach Alford does what Ben Howland failed to do, use a zone defense to beat Florida! John Wooden used a zone press.
Ben Howland, Gregg Marshall, Tommy Amaker come to mind right away.
So who will it be Marquette Shaka Smart or Ben Howland? I vote for Shaka, gotta get those Chicago recruits!!
Billy Donovan praising Kyle Anderson, who he badly wanted and nearly landed as a recruit in 2012 until Ben Howland swooped in.
Really hope Marquette gets a big name. Ben Howland, Shaka Smart or Gregg Marshall would be wonderful.
I want Wake to get either Ben Howland or Shaka Smart.
Wow, Buzz Williams to Virginia Tech? Not a head scratcher to me that he left. But to Virginia Tech? I think he was really disappointed about the season and the configuration of the new Big East. But he had a bad year, so he gets Virginia Tech instead of Texas. I was sure he was leaving last year. Oh well, I love the idea of Ben Howland! A guy that's hungry, wants to prove himself again...and can keep recruits from leaving and recruit himself. Hire him this week! He said he'd only go somewhere that can win now, and Marquette is loaded with new blood, Let's Go Warriors! Good Luck Buzz, you always gave it 100 percent, but we all new you weren't gonna stick around
Leon Rice, Dan Monson and Ben Howland are my first three. Big no to Ernie Kent. Is *** Bennet available? LOL.
Really hope Ben Howland doesn't become our next basketball coach. Gonna pull a Dennis Erickson just to get his reputation back.
if I were them I take a long look at Seth Greenberg who has ACC experience as a HC and can recruit to a point and Ben Howland

Ben Howland was toxic but at least the dude could coach. Steve Alford makes Vinny Del *** look downright cerebral.
