Interview w/ Big Ten Network Analyst and BTN.com writer – Tom Dienhart
Dienhart talks both Illinois and Mizzou’s coaching situations and shares why Tom Crean may be a “tortured soul” in Indiana.
Lynn and Wacha are the rotation’s two biggest question marks
The Cardinals rotation is looking good in Jupiter, but questions remain once the games start counting again. Should we be concerned with Lance Lynn after a year off? Will Michael Wacha hold down the fifth spot?
Both have had decent springs and will play a large role if the rotation is going to bounce back from 2016.
Mizzou’s plan B if Crean stays at IU? Cuonzo Martin.
Tom Crean’s name has gathered the most heat during Mizzou’s coaching search, but there’s never a guarantee. So what about local boy Cuonzo Martin?
Martin has made significant steps forward since beginning as a head coach at Missouri State in 2008 and could be a nice fit for the Tigers job.
