Perhaps. But, if so, it was late in the game

Former Elmhurst head coach Mark Scherer will be Matt Nadelhoffer's replacement at Millikin.

Over the course of their search, MU narrowed the field of applicants to two finalists, the other being long time Augie assistant Tom Jessee.

Returners to next season's Millikin squad were to be introduced to, and meet with Coach Scherer at 5:00 today.

North Park's first recruit is Scott Olsen, a 6'4 shooting guard from Plainfield East.

I doubt that it ultimately makes any difference, but it always feels like a good omen when the first one commits this early.
Per Twitter...

Dark Horse Recruits‏ @dhrecruits 
#DarkHorse 2017 6'4 F Chamar Flanigan (Glenbard North HS) just committed to play college basketball at North Park University (D3).



As reported by TQ on 3/18, I think North Park's first recruit for next year was Chamar Flanigan from Glenbard North.  ;)

Looks like ebel lowered his shoulder. Whatever.

What does that mean?   ???
Is this an analysis of the game action?

I'm guessing it may be a comment related to what I just posted, which is the bias shown by the broadcast team.

Congrats to Coach G and Augie.  What an unbelievable season for this team.  I am extremely proud of what they have accomplished, regardless of what happens tomorrow.  Good luck in the National Championship Game. 

On the negative side, I'm hoping there is a different PBP guy doing tomorrow's game.  I'm really surprised they would choose someone who is clearly biased to broadcast that game.  He even mentioned it in the second half, but that doesn't make it better.  Really disappointing and I actually turned down the sound so I didn't have to hear it.

CBS is broadcasting the game tomorrow, so it'll be a CBS crew on the television call. Rose and McHugh will be doing the game on the radio.

i thought that Rose and McHugh did just fine on the call of this game. I didn't sense any bias whatsoever.

Augie fans,

With all due respect to your perceived bias by the broadcast team, wouldn't the allegations be both more plausible and believable should they have been made by fans from a team not involved in the contest? Just asking.

then losing starting PG Greenman for the season last year) to get back to Salem so quickly.  To get this far in only App's third season, after a number of tough blows to the program, is remarkable.  Of course, Auggie can say the same thing, to get to Salem despite losing the top six guys and an expected key contributor and with only one senior playing much is likewise pretty remarkable.  Regardless of the outcome tomorrow night, both of these programs should be in very good shape for the next few years, and even for the loser of the game, the experience in Salem should prove invaluable.

Not that I want to start this room speculating about next season yet while there's still a team that's playing out this season, but Augie (one 'g', incidentally) may not even be the 2017-18 preseason favorite in the CCIW. North Central, with a healthy Connor Raridon rejoining a team that has NABC All-District center (and possible d3hoops.com All-American, once that list gets announced) Alex Sorenson, All-CCIW second-teamer Erwin Henry, and a couple of really solid CCIW-quality starters in Aiden Chang and Matt Cappelletti, may very well end up being the CCIW preseason favorite instead of Augie.

And not to add fuel to that speculative fire, but in addition to Raridon, a 2016-2017 D3Hoops preseason All-American, don't forget more than capable subs Nick Chambers, an almost 40% three point shooter in conference play, and defensive wizard Jaquan Phipps, one of the toughest on-the-ball defenders around. In addition, the Cardinals will get Sam Fehrle back. Fehrle was NCC's sixth man in the first several games before becoming an academic casualty.
Everyone who knows the difference between a basketball and a bucket of beer knows the one thing the Cards need to replace next season. Picture the possibility of that spot being filled by a 6'6" PG.

So, CCIW rivals of Augustana, what's the best way to beat them, and who is the key guy or guys to stop :)?

Easy question, nescac1

When you want to slay the dragon, the best way to do so is to cut the dragon's (orange) head off.  :)

Speaking of the team bus, on the ride up to Kenosha yesterday the NPU coaches and I were joking as to whether or not the ink was still wet on Millikin SID Bryan Marshall's press release when Todd Kelly's résumé came through the Millikin athletic office fax machine. ;)

Hearing that among the other applications recently received for the vacant Millikin Head Coach position are two from coaches with former ties to Benedictine. One from former BU assistant coach and current North Park assistant Joe Fano, and another from former BU assistant and current Blackburn Head Coach Steve Kollar.

I have just heard from an unimpeachable source that this is a false rumor. Joe Fano is not applying for the Millikin job.

Sources confirm that NPU Coach Fano is indeed not a candidate for the Millikin job. Evidently, he did initially apply, but subsequently rescinded his application and withdrew from consideration. Word on the street is that he wouldn't leave NPU and the CCIW for another assistant job, but that evidently he is looking into the possibility of a head position in a warmer locale.
Seems pretty normal as how many assistants don't aspire to a head man position?

Sager - is that to assume Nadelhoffer was canned? I got the feeling he left on his own. Didn't think he was looked at in a negative light. Granted I am looking from afar. If he was canned, you are right about job security. If he left on his own, not sure that speaks to job security at all... might speak to "being the right fit" (which is something my alma mater apparently is struggling with SMDH).

Dave,

If you will scan back a few pages, you will note several posts that seem to point to the likelihood that he was fired. He may have technically resigned but, if so, it was likely a case of if you don't jump, we'll push you.

The Kelly File-----A Synopsis

The Set Up

Kelly has a good thing going at IIT, and doesn't want to give it up. Especially that soph PG. At least not yet. 🏀

The Hook

Take the Millikin job = take a pay cut too. < 💰 Not this year!

The Sting

Mrs. Kelly would have her spousal unit's butt in divorce court faster than you can say IIT if he insisted on moving to Decatur. 👎🏼

In the United States, there are 11 colleges and universities with Concordia in their names. There are 18 Wesleyans.

I figured that Steve Kollar would throw his hat into the ring at Millikin, not just for the reasons that Mark mentioned, but also because he's an Elmhurst grad. It's pretty typical for CCIW alumni to want to get back into this league. He also coached at several west suburban high schools prior to being hired as an assistant to John Baines at St. Francis, so he holds promise for Millikin in terms of his potential to recruit in Chicagoland.

Joe Fano's been a big part of two very successful back-to-back seasons at two different schools, and he knows his stuff, so he's a solid candidate as well.

Todd Creal at MacMurray is another guy I could see going for the MU job, as he was an assistant there under Tim Littrell and before that had served for a couple of years under Grey Giovanine at Augustana. He's coming off of a tough 5-20 season, though, which might make it harder for him to plead his case in an interview. Chris Martin's only been at Loras for one season, so it might be too soon for him to contemplate a change if he's interested in eventually returning to the CCIW. And I always wonder if a coach who's been successful in one of the local lower-echelon D3 leagues, such as Chris Bunch at Webster, Ken Davis at Lake Forest, or Ryan Kane at Ripon, might be interested in a CCIW job. Kane would be an attractive candidate for Millikin; he's in his late thirties, he just enjoyed a D3 tournament season at Ripon, and he spent five years sitting second chair beside Mark White at Dominican, so he knows Chicagoland recruiting, too.

I still think that this is Todd Kelly's job to lose, though. He led Illinois Tech to a 22-6 record this year, as the Scarlet Hawks finished as the runner-up in the USCAA national tournament in spite of the fact that their best player, Anthony Mosley, missed the end of the season with a knee injury. IIT, in its own way, is a tough gig for a coach in terms of recruiting, and yet Kelly built a really good team there. Todd's a Millikin basketball alumnus, which would make it easier for the community to rally around him in the wake of the departure of the very popular Matt Nadelhoffer.

Despite the widely held belief that Todd Kelly is not only the most logical and likely candidate, but also the odds on favorite to actually get the job, I have just heard from an unimpeachable source that not only has Todd Kelly NOT applied for the Millikin job, but also, that he has no interest in doing so. It seems there are as many as three major factors accounting for his disinterest.
Furthermore, the MU selection committee was to meet either yesterday or today to discuss what applicants they want to invite to campus to interview.
My source also indicated that while some applicants are no doubt currently on staff at other CCIW schools, he would expect that even more were from other conferences like the Midwest, and especially, the SLIAC.

Greg,

As you are the authoritative source regarding NPU, I will bow to your superior knowledge of the situation.  :)

I have heard of several other current CCIW assistants have also thrown their name into the ring.

Do any come with name tags?
