This ESPN Outside the Lines investigative report just posted a couple hours ago is supposedly why suddenly everyone at Michigan State is going into hiding-

Default Tip Of Iceberg

We might reserve judgement till all facts are known. Sometimes when news emerges like this, they are only the tip of the iceberg.

Former Illinois State head coach Kevin Stallings had a pretty good run while at Vanderbilt, though he only made 1 NCAA tournament in his final 4 seasons there, and that was a one and done in the First Four round.
Now Stallings is in his 2nd season at Pitt. He took over a highly successful program that under Jamie Dixon had gone to the NCAA Tournament in 11 of the 13 years he coached there, and averaged over 25 wins per season.
In his first season at Pitt, Stallings went 16-17, and 4-14 in the ACC. It was the first losing season at Pitt since Ben Howland's first season in 1999-2000, and their worst conference record since their one year in the old Eastern Collegiate Basketball League (forerunner of the Atlantic-10) in 1976-77.
This season, he is 8-18 overall, and 0-13 in the ACC, with almost all of the losses being blowouts.

Today, Louisville emabrrassed Pitt at home by 34 points, and Louisville was missing their best player and top scorer!

What worries Pitt fans is that his 2018 recruiting class includes only a 2-star juco guard and a 3-star high school forward, and neither player ranks in the Top 200 national rankings. And he has no recruits committed in any future seasons beyond 2018.
Stallings has 4 more years on his initial 6-year contract he was given by Pitt. But the Pitt fans are so fed up with him that the administration is getting a lot of pressure to cut their losses and replace Stallings.
Stallings is a pretty good coach, and with time things should improve. But will the fans and administration give him more time?

Another head coach who is getting a lot of heat from their fans is new Illinois head coach Brad Underwood. He is not in any danger of losing his job, since this is his first season at Illinois. But Illinois won 20 games last year under Jon Groce, and they were 8-10 in the Big Ten. This season, Underwood is off to a miserable start with a record of 12-14, and after today's 22-point home drubbing by Penn State, they are just 2-11 in the Big Ten. With 5 Big Ten games left, Illinois could be looking at possibly their worst Big Ten record since they joined the Big Ten in 1917, and they worst record in any conference since 1907!
Underwood is not accumulating many fans among the Illini faithful, and things aren't looking like they will improve soon. Underwood has only one recruit committed for 2018 (point guard Ayo Dosunmu), and no commitments for any future years.
Unfortunately, point guard is about the only position they don't really need help with Da'Monte Williams, Mark Smith, Trent Frazier, and Te'jon Lucas. They sorely need shooters, wing players, and big men to compete in the Big Ten. They are near the bottom in most statistical categories in the Big Ten.
