It is pretty comical, though, to watch Georgetown fans debate whether *they* want *Amaker.*

When you assume, you make... well, you know the rest.

The feud between Morgan Wooten and John Thompson is legendary (and it's only one of several classic feuds John has perpetuated). It's actually remarkable how JT3 has managed to overcome this handicap.

No surprise here, but the Georgetown job was filled, and it's not Amaker.

That it was Ewing was moderately surprising, maybe. Dude has earned a shot at the top chair.

Any truth to the report that TA turned it down?

Safe to assume at this point that TA will remain uninterested in any other job openings besides Duke (once Coach K leaves)?

Georgetown will now have a huge advantage in the handshake line, as Ewing can engage from long range and see over the support staff.

St Johns vs Georgetown--Ewing vs Mullin all over again.

Funny in that some GU grads were telling me Saturday this was about to happen, although I guess a lot of people thought it would.

I don't see Tommy taking Duke either, but I haven't eased everyone into believing that yet, so I'll hold off on making that case for now.

Aside from the fact that it's far from certain that he'd be offered the Duke job, I also have trouble seeing Amaker taking it. He's in what is probably the perfect job for him, and I'm pretty sure he realizes that. Only a fool walks away from a perfect situation, and Amaker's not a fool.

I thought Ewing might return to The Peoples Republic of Cambridge as Tommy's replacement.

But isn't the conventional critique that he doesn't manage game situations well?

I didn't say he's a brilliant basketball coach, just that he's not a stupid guy. There's a difference.

I was trying to make a gentle joke about his reputed ability to make decisions in the heat of the moment, not a serious comment.
