Its official... Memphis Head Coach John Calipari is headed to Kentucky. So, what's next for the coaching carousel? Mike Anderson is the hottest coach in the NCAA. There are reports that Georgia is offering him a multi-year deal for more than 2 million per year. There are reports that Missouri wants to offer Anderson a 5 year extension at 1.3 mil / year and then there are the reports that Memphis might target Anderson as Calipari's replacement.

As you can tell, the rumors are rampant, but what's the truth? Will Memphis be able to lure Anderson away? Will Georgia be able to buy the Coach and bring him back to his SEC roots (spent 17 seasons as at Arkansas)? Or... will Anderson stay with the program that gave him his first big chance? Will Mizzou be able to step up its offer from 1.3 million? There's enough drama in this thing to make it a day-time soap opera. What do you guys think?

As for me, I'm a die-hard fan of Mizzou and I love what Coach Anderson has done. I want to thank him for getting this program back to respectability. He's just starting to get the program where he wants it and I really think he could do something special here in the next few years. I would be furious at MU if they didn't do everything possible to keep Coach. Coach should stay. He's too good to take over someone else's legacy (Calipari). Anderson's good enough to create his own legacy and win championships at the program that he and his family (Carrol and Mike Anderson Jr.) built... Even Jayhawk fans would like to see him stay because it makes that rivalry valid again. Its best for the game of college basketball for Mike to stay in yellow and gold.
