Coaching searches are wild goose chases. Indiana’s is now finally resolved, but it wasn’t before a week and a half’s worth of rumors — from Steve Alford, to Billy Donovan, to Chris Mack, and everything in between.

National media members and pay-sites seemed to buy into the Alford smoke early, though this blog was able to trace those back to his own camp.

Security guards, man.

What a wild, wild week.
