If you get the right coach, you can win, whether or not you have a "top 25" job or not. Look at what Nate Oats has done at Alabama, or what Mark Few has done at Gonzaga.
I wish Maryland had hired Porter Moser last spring, but that ship has sailed. I would give Sarunas Jasikevicius serious consideration. He's an alum from the Gary Williams days, he played in the NBA and became an international star, and he's currently the best coach in the European leagues.
Then why are multiple basketball analysts calling this job a top-25 job and saying they think that Maryland has a legitimate chance to snag someone like Oats or Enfield or Musselman or Bruce Pearl? This isn't my opinion - I actually don't think we can lure away Oats because we can't pay him what Alabama can. But others think that this job is enticing enough that we could.
