You know, just in case...

UPDATE: Neverdangmind, y'all.

I mean to imply nothing by this post--I have no inside information whatsoever, and Mark Gottfried still has made no public comments about the whole UCLA thing--but hey, it can't hurt to be prepared, right? So let's just say Gottfried does bail on the Pack for the west coast; in that case we're going to need another list of potential saviors. Below I tossed out some names that struck me as possibilities, though I've done little research on most and can't speak to the compatibility of each guy. Some are retreads from the last go around, but there are a lot of new names to consider as well.

In compiling this list, I assumed Yow would make the obligatory phone calls to Shaka Smart and Brad Stevens, who would quickly and politely decline, sending us back into the realm of mostly lower profile mid-major options. Thoughts? Additions?
