  1. Isiah Thomas can't stop, won't stop

    Eamonn Brennan

    You have to hand it to Isiah Thomas: The man clearly loves basketball. Whatever his other motivations for taking the Florida International job three years ago, it's hard to argue that a love of basketball wasn't at least partially behind it. The s...

  2. Dominique Ferguson's experiment is over

    Eamonn Brennan

    Remember Dominique Ferguson? He was the No. 58-ranked player, and the No. 14-ranked power forward, in the class of 2010. He had offers from Arizona, UCLA, Indiana, Kentucky and Duke. He chose to play for Florida International instead. And now, after ...

  3. Richard Pitino steps right up at FIU

    Eamonn Brennan

    Give it up for the Florida International Panthers: For a program that hasn't posted a winning record in the past 12 seasons, FIU has no problem landing "name" coaches. Of course, the Isiah Thomas experiment always felt more like a public relations...

  4. When Isaiah Thomas met Isiah Thomas

    Eamonn Brennan

    That's right. Isaiah Thomas, the Washington guard who's quietly making a case for Pac-10 (and even national) player of the year honors, was named after the former Pistons guard, current FIU head coach, and formerly disastrous New York Knicks general ...

  5. Isiah thinks of Knicks 'every single day'

    Eamonn Brennan

    There's never been much of a question that former New York Knicks general manager Isiah Thomas wanted another shot at the NBA. He's been open about it before. Before the NBA stepped in, Thomas was technically still employed by the Knicks as recently ...

  6. FIU commit ends up choosing Auburn

    Eamonn Brennan

    Florida International coach Isiah Thomas got some very exciting, and then some very disappointing news in the matter of 24 hours. And both pieces of news came from the same recruit. Cedrick McAfee, the No. 59-ranked player in the class of 2011, to...

  7. FIU recruit pulls switcheroo

    Eamonn Brennan

    You have to feel for Isiah Thomas. Maybe just a little bit. Maybe just for this one situation. But still, you have to kind of of feel for him. Imagine, if you would, how excited Zeke must have been this Sunday. It was Sunday, after all, when the N...

  8. FIU recruit ineligible for first semester

    Eamonn Brennan

    In a summer teeming with Isiah Thomas offseason news -- from his stated desire to be an NBA general manager to his questionable (and quickly squashed) bid to remain an official consultant to the Knicks during his FIU tenure -- this might be the one t...

  9. Isiah Thomas nixes Knicks after all

    Eamonn Brennan

    Well, that didn't take long. Isiah Thomas and the New York Knicks set off something of a firestorm last week, somehow managing to confuse both NBA and college hoops observers with the tenuous announcement that Thomas would serve as a front-office ...

  10. Coaches question Zeke's Knicks gig

    Eamonn Brennan

    Jim Boeheim and Mike Krzyzewski aren't the first college hoops observers to notice the massive conflict of interest at the heart of Isiah Thomas' job as a consultant with the New York Knicks. Our own Dana O'Neil tackled that last week. The calculus i...

  11. DePaul's latest name: Isiah Thomas

    Eamonn Brennan

    Just about everyone currently employed as the head coach of a major college program has been mentioned, oftentimes unrealistically, in connection with the DePaul coaching job. The reason these rumors are unrealistic is because the DePaul job is about...

  12. Afternoon Linkage: Reacting to Robbie

    Eamonn Brennan

    A day after the Robbie Hummel injury, college basketball is still fixated on Purdue. A weak Thursday night slate probably didn't help much. So let's do a Hummel-heavy link dump and get it all out of our system before tomorrow blows our collective min...

  13. How's Isiah Thomas doing? Not great

    Eamonn Brennan

    Make no mistake: Getting a coach like Isiah Thomas to come to Florida International was a major coup for that school. Sure, Isiah has had his fair share of struggles elsewhere -- OK, he's had, like, five times his share, but who's counting? He's also...

  14. Alex Legion pops up at FIU

    Eamonn Brennan

    Hey, more Alex Legion news! The former Illinois and Kentucky guard -- who never really quite caught on under Bruce Weber, despite plenty of hype to the contrary -- has decided to take his services to Florida International, home of one Mr. Isiah Thoma...
