This is the polar opposite of what that snake Will Wade did... Archie Miller is the definition of a class act.. Very happy for him, he definitely earned this.

Re: The Coaching Carousel 2017

What a crazy week for the A10. Miller to Indiana seems to make a lot of sense... Sucks for the league if it happens, I'd put my money on it does. Let's hope Georgetown finds their coach soon, not named Hurley please.

If it's a bone bruise, those are very painful, but don't last more than a week. May make sense to come off the bench if needed and rest it for Houston. A week recovery is plenty for that injury. The first 3-4 days makes you feel like you have a broken bone.
