After all the drama and rumors surrounding SMU's potential hiring of Larry Brown, the coach finally confirmed the decision on Thursday.

While many media members have expressed the opinion that it is a bad hire, no one can doubt that SMU made a big splash as it heads into the Big East. In an attempt to avoid the ignored bottom of the conference, SMU made an outside-the-box hire that has brought a lot of attention to the program, which was part of the reason the hire was made. Monday's press conference is sure to draw a lot of attention, and SMU made a smart decision broadcasting it online.
