Vote: Which coach will thrive in new surroundings?

 Mike Anderson
Will Mike Anderson's exciting style of play turns things around at Missouri?
There has been plenty of movement on the head coaching front in major conferences. And there was a strong domino effect as schools looked to fill their vacancies.

Once Cincinnati settled on Mick Cronin, Andy Kennedy was free to take the Ole Miss job. Mike Anderson left his post at UAB for the challenge of turning around Missouri's program, which left the door open for Mike Davis to return to his home state. Indiana, which Davis previously coached before he announced his resignation, tabbed former Oklahoma coach Kelvin Sampson as its man. The Sooners then turned to the young Jeff Capel to succeed Sampson.

And that's not to mention the return of Bob Huggins to coaching at Kansas State or Herb Sendek's departure from NC State for the Valley of the Sun. There are old faces in new places and big-name schools undergoing changes, so we want your take, SportsNation.

How will each of these coaches fare at their new schools? Which coach has the toughest job ahead of him? Will any of them win a national championship? And will any fail to turn things around without even reaching the postseason?
