Indiana lost to IPFW, so Crean is out.
Iowa lost to Omaha…too bad, McCaffrey would be have been a riot in State College going at with Dave Jones.
Maryland and Turgeon have a chance, except he had the nerve to lose to PSU!
Your guy, Izzo, with an UNBELIEVABLE freshmen class, lost to Northeastern. He’s out!
Minnesota lost to PSU, so Pitino is out.
Nebraska lost to Gardner-Webb, so no need to call Miles’ agent.
Ohio State lost to FAU, so Matta is out.
Rutgers finished below PSU, so that eliminates Pikiel
Painter is clean at Purdue, he would be an option.
Beilein is your guy, no bad losses in the non-conference this year!
Northwestern didn’t have any bad losses, so Collins is an option.
Wisconsin and Gard avoided any bad losses, so he fits your criteria.
Gard, Painter, Beilein, or Collins seem to be your choices…everyone else are bums who lost to “bad” teams.
