Wednesday News:

Big Apple Buckets ranks the desirability of the eight Ivy League coaching jobs.

A stroll down NCAA Tournament memory lane stops to talk with Bill Bradley.

Not a shock given the size of Princeton's 2013 recruiting class, but a west coast big man who had once seen interest from the Tigers will officially walk on at Stanford.

Fairfield forward Keith Matthews is transferring.

As you've probably heard on the news, Mike Rice is out at Rutgers.

The story at ESPN says there will be a "national search" to replace Rice. Would someone like Chris Mooney be a good fit here?

I am guessing Bill Carmody may not be the answer here as he has not won in the Big Ten (where Rutgers is headed).

I don't see Amaker taking this job, (a) because Harvard is loaded, and (b) Piscataway is too close to South Orange.

Any other names related to either the Cradle or our perennial opponents out there?

Given the way three out of the last four Rutgers coaches have departed (Naked free throws/Freaking out on the Pitt baseball coach after a game/Mike Rice's serious issues), I'd expect/hope the Scarlet Knights would focus on candidates without any ghosts/skeletons.

Mooney is an interesting thought. I'd interview Sydney Johnson.

Will be fascinating.

Rutgers would be wise to take a long look at Coach Carmody. He is local and would present a clean break from the disaster of the last two coaches at Rutgers. And the added benefit to Princeton would be the continuation of the annual home-and-home with a Big East/Ten program.

Amaker couldn't win at Michigan, for heaven's sake, which is a lot worse than not winning at Northwestern.

Meanwhile, the Rutgers AD is damaged goods as well, and rightfully so.

Carmody coming home to Spring Lake would make for a great story and I'd love to see him get the job, but I'm not holding my breath.

If he (or Chris or Sydney) would get the job, then for the Rutgers annual series to continue you would for the first time have scheduled games between Cradle teams.

If any of the coaches mention DO get that job, it is going to make recruiting the next Melville/Mullin/Scrabis/Earl/Weisz that much harder, going head to head for local talent.

I'm with Stuart. Rutgers is too much of a traditional rival to want a Cradle coach there. It's hard for me to gauge how good a job this will be perceived to be, given the chaos and the weakened AD making the hire. I think they should try to get Vivian Stringer to do it--low moving expenses and instant free media.

Rice went 16-38 in Big East. Tigers would have done better. Starting over in the Big 10? At least the new guy can't come in with expectations very high. I am sure the NY market looks great to the football people but did they forget they have to play basketball, too? Sleeper pick: Jim Harrick (unless he died or is in jail)
