  1. Thank you, why is it not OK as fans to not be satisfied with a bad 3 years? It's not like the product has been good and change was made with years left.
  2. It's your right to disagree, I'm not trying to shut you or anyone else up. I guess it's your right NOT to take him at his word that a) is not using a search firm and b) comp level will stay the same or relatively close. If you insist that the above to items are him lying, that's your prerogative and hey, we'll see once the hire is made over time we'll be able to confirm if he was or wasn't.
  3. I don't understand a few posts here, respectfully. - The speculation is/was that Benson is throwing a bone to a search firm, thus greasing the skids to his next job via said search firm. He comes out and says no search firm is being used and people are upset? This is the right move to not get into bed with a search firm. - Speculation is/was that Brown was let go so they can save money, pay someone half the salary. Benson comes out and says they are hiring someone at comparable comp level and people are upset? This should in theory mean a candidate that is NOT a cheap-ass cop-out m
  4. Lou can petition all he want's for the job, there is no indication he's even being looked at. You don't let go of Brown and then hire Lou. If that's the play, Benson should be fired on the spot.
  5. Yep, he would have 1 but because of the one year granted it's 2. Additionally, he's a grad transfer meaning he has his undergrad so he can potentially go for his masters and take 2 years to get it. Dude killed in the classroom clearly so now the world is his oyster. Live your best life, young buck!
  6. Yep...that's why I expect many more entrances into the transfer portal and this is expected. Kids need to protect themselves and their future.
  7. Who cares, it's a feelings place, let everyone feel and get into their emotions!
  8. People we may want to stay will have options...
  9. Based on scuttlebutt, it appears the departure will be swift and many...hang on to something.
  10. I'll there will be someone hired in the next 3 or 4 weeks at most, maybe even sooner. You're getting your ass handed to you as an AD by fans and local pundits, the quicker you get a new face out there and a new face of the program the better it will be for Benson. One thing that could delay it is the state review of the new contract.
  11. Benson upped that contracted through girded teeth, will was coming of back to back to back...lol. This change has been years in the making.
  12. I don't see how you can separate the two considering Will never really had a chance. Come hell or high water, Benson was moving on. Let's not pretend that isn't the case.
  13. That's probably true and understandable but over the last 3 years, 10 players have left. That's huge turnover for a program trying to establish some consistency. Over the last 5 years, 17 players left with eligibility remaining, plus the two famous grad transfers so total of 17 or 19 depending on how you want to look at it. I've been pretty vocal about this issue for years.
  14. I'm not missing that part AT ALL, in fact I edited my above post as I missed it in my original reply. I'm in COMPLETE agreement with you on the premeditated nature of the change regardless of outcome this season which is patently unfair. Furthermore, I'm in complete agreement with your criticism of Mark Benson, COMPLETE! I want to be VERY clear about that.
  15. I'm not suggesting that he left voluntarily, or if given the choice he wouldn't have stayed. That is not my contention, I think the reality of what happened is pretty well out there at this point. My only point is, especially as new opportunities open up for him, it's not the end of the world. I'll add one more thing, that yes, there are people who as you put it "guess at what is goin on" I would content there's a blend of that some truth, some conjecture from everyone here, but there are more than one or two people here who also have/had personal relationships over the years with the people i
  16. While I understand your sentiment and recognize the reality, my opinion is unchanged from what read and private conversation. Will has put up with a lot of BS, I keep having this nagging thought that he may not be as broken up about it as people think. He'll land on his feet and take on the next challenge. Obviously it's always hard to move on after that many years and uncertainty of where things will go from here but, how do I put this delicately, there will be some release in not having to deal with some of the clown-show.
  17. VC reporting that William Kondrat is transferring out. Will be interesting to see how many players will leave. This one was probably easy to call considering he was a walkon.
