It's happened before, in fact from Tennessee

David Harrison. Patton got him in a clever way - by recruiting big brother DJ a couple years before. (DJ was a nice player, for sure.)

Sure there's a ton of talent in Memphis. In fact if their team is underperforming, shame on them with all that talent in their back yard.

But having talent in your back yard is not required for success (think KU, Gonzaga, Arizona), nor is it a guarantee of success.

It can happen here. We need to think BIG, starting with the Head Coach. If we're paying Tad $2m / year, isn't it worth the gamble to pay a higher profile coach $4m or $5m?
