Calipari or Smart David Teel Daily Press Three Final Fours but no banner in 10 years like Ben Howland? Not good enough at UCLA. Befitting the Hollywood aura, the ideal candidate is an A-list personality with an oversized ego, designer wardrobe and unassailable recruiting chops. Translation: He's John Calipari, who's taken Massachusetts, Memphis and Kentucky to the Final Four, the latter to last season's national championship. But Calipari wouldn't bail on the bluegrass for LA's bright lights.

Before Mark Turgeon became a blip on Maryland’s radar during its frantic four-day coaching search, I admittedly knew way more about former NHL center Pierre Turgeon than I did about the former Texas A&M coach who was introduced as Maryland’s men’s basketball coach on Wednesday afternoon. I might be in rare company around here when it comes to my appreciation for the Turgeon who scored 515 goals in his long NHL career, but I know I was in the majority when I said “Who?” after news broke that the Terps had hired the Turgeon who steered Texas A&M to four straight NCAA tournament berths.

Maybe No. 11 Butler had opening-day jitters. Or perhaps the problem was just facing another strong mid-major program so early in the season. Whatever the explanation, the Bulldogs strung together a 15-4 closing run to pull away from Davidson 73-62 on Saturday in Indianapolis. "It's a lot of fun, but I'm sure there are some anxious moments," Butler coach Brad Stevens said. "This game is not going to define who you are, win or lose, but it gives you a lot to work on."

After the NCAA championship game last season, Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski suggested that Butler should be considered a 2011 contender. The perception of the Bulldogs went from favorites to unfortunates after they started the season 4-4 and suffered through a rough winter slump in Horizon League play. Of course, coach Brad Stevens cares as much about perception as Blue the bulldog mascot cares about his appearance. Stevens employs a straightforward strategy to deal with this.

INDIANAPOLIS - Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski had just helped snip down an NCAA tournament championship net Monday night and he predicted who would be favored to stand in that spot next season. He didn't name Duke. He picked the team Duke had just beaten. "Somebody's going to pick the top 10 for next year; where are you going to pick Butler?" he said after winning his fourth national title with a 61-59 victory at Lucas Oil Stadium. "They'll be a favorite next year." Krzyzewski could be right - as long as a few things at Butler stay the same.

When last America saw them, the Butler Bulldogs had finished their season a half-court fling away from a national title. On Thursday, the first step of Butler's attempt to return to national celebrity encountered a formidable Old Dominion team that, like the Bulldogs, had won nine games in a row. This time, the Bulldogs got the buzzer-beater they had been denied in last season's championship game. Senior Forward Matt Howard's putback in the final second pushed Butler past Old Dominion, 60-58, as the Bulldogs beat the Monarchs at their own game ? rebounding ? when it mattered most.

There is that marvelous recruiting base that runs the length of the Baltimore-Washington corridor. There is the stunning arena, the Comcast Center, where kids — young men — get to play in a pro setting. Now there is the tradition that Gary Williams carved out over 22 seasons, the undeniable vitality of a top tier Division I program resurrected to new heights by the coach who came back home to do it. What's not to like about Maryland basketball? "When I take the pulse around college basketball," ESPN analyst Dave Telep said, "I think this is one job that can be dangerous to a lot of people.
