  1. Dev Holmes off the team (again) for disciplinary reasons (again). Sad however, safe to say his once promising career at Albany is over.
  2. This is fact. Coach had to fundraise to support the program. He’s also woefully underpaid.
  3. Poor analogies. I was very closely affiliated with both situations. And I mean very close.
  4. Don't disagree at all, and it makes sense. I do think there is a personality conflict, however.
  5. Dartmouth, St. Bonaventure, Fordham.... (others). Facts. And by the way Coach, I think many of us (and I know the Brown family likely does) appreciate the words you have put here today...and David just posted on Twitter.
  6. Exactly 200k, per season for 10 years. That's real cash. Why did Mike C, a huge UA supporter, not buck up again for SEFCU? Hmmmmm.....
  7. He's directed funds to Football. But that isn't enough either. Again, the point of fundraising is to...fundraise. That's the ADEPT's job, which includes advertising. Those numbers are not what they should be for a man who is a self-proclaimed fundraiser and touts that he was part (major part) of fundraising for ODU's athletic expansion.
  8. Let's also talk about attendance, which is down EVERYWHERE...but...plummeted at UA due to a lot of moves made by Benson. You need butts in the seats to bring in revenue...perfect example is fundraising. $1 from millions versus 1 million from 1 donor...do the math.
  9. Absolutely. In fact, I think the new coach shouldn't take the job unless he gets a max 5 year contract and guarantees on COLA, summer school, buy games, budget increases, and a real direction on SEFCU. Otherwise, that Coach is dealing with the same cesspool that Brown was swimming in. So, yes, I give the new coach a 5 year pass...hell with 4 years. That's my big issue here: unless there is some special, unknown announcement about a major move in conferences or upgrades to SEFCU, this is a move to merely rid himself of someone who he straight up had zero relationship with. So, a
  10. Fair enough. If the man has one foot out the door, he shouldn't be making these decisions in a vacuum. Just my .02.
  11. PREACH!!!! This has been a cathartic, sad day. I honestly want to know if Havidan is going to even peek at Twitter and see the groundswell...look at Benson's performance...and say, "Wait a minute here..."
  12. MMMM...nope. W&M is in hotwater. Their AD got canned for, you guessed it, unceremoniously firing their head basketball coach. Benson has connections to the state, to W&M, and experience. They don't really give a $iena anymore about athletics.
  13. Why don't we delve in on why Benson forced out Brown's lead recruiter...
