  1. Agreed...you think Benson is even going to talk to anyone from Will's staff? Zero chance...that includes Lucious. McNamara and Beiline would be interesting to kick the tires on as would Rick Patino's kids although he may not want to take this big a step down.
  2. Classy read, even in his final moment and interaction at UA he did it the right way. That reads to me as someone who is content with this change and ready to try and make a run at a new opportunity. Maybe I'm crazy! I didn't detect any bitterness even though the back-story and the premeditated nature of the move is rotten to the core.
  3. I believe he did, I'll try to find it. I read it just yesterday but now can't find it. It was largely a thank you note to Will Brown. Not sure if it got removed or what.
  4. You don't let go of a Coach Brown to bring in Lucious Jordan....with all due respect.
  5. We'll have to agree to disagree if he should get a pass on 3 losing season and 4 out of 5 times not getting out of quarters but it's a moot point now. I would have been fine either way and I'm not a long distance fan. I vehemently disagree that the program was in good shape. Sorry...paper talent doesn't win. Did they show promise this season? Sure but 3 games ago they were an unmitigated mess losing to sbu at home.
  6. He slept with a colleague connected with the program while married...lol.
  7. I'm going to be careful how I respond here, had he parted with Will Brown after Brown went to the finals, your point would have some teeth behind it. I'm aware of the speculation that Will was gone even if he went dancing this year, and had that happened obviously that would NOT have been justified and the outrage would be far more severed IMO. The reality for what it's worth is we don't know what he would have done with CB had he won or went deep into the post season. I know you feel that you do but unless you have it on tape or email it's still conjecture. The reality is Benson made the move
  8. As others have pointed out, I'm not sure it's ENTIRELY personal even if maybe most of it was. We have to acknowledge that we've lost quite a bit the last 3 years, once out of the quarterfinals in 5 years. It's not like Benson let CB go after 4 20 wins seasons and 2 NCAA trips. It's been a slog and a struggle, product wasn't great which gave Benson an opening to do what he wanted to do.
  9. I can tell you this is NOT my position. I love UA hoops and whomever the hire is will have my full support and patience. I just know what I know about the man doing the hiring.
  10. Dartmouth and St. Bona for sure...the rest is conjecture at best.
  11. It's unclear how true this is with the exception of the St. Bonna situation. I've been here a long time, know a lot and have seen heard a lot and it's unclear if he's ever had a solid offer on the table. Maybe Dartmouth where he went through the interview process.
  12. McElroy sold the arena rights...Benson let that lapse and has done nothing with it for how many years now? That was at least a few hundred K and nothing...
  13. I screamed about this for years...get as MANY people to show up even if you have to entice them to in order to pack the arena, those fans will then turn into lifelong fans and you can within reason try to bleed them for some money. Listen, D1 programs take money to run. What he did was put up barriers all over the place to people casually showing up instead of building the fanbase first. Predictably, attendance under his leadership tanked. This is how stupid he is...say 400 cars showed up, assuming the 1000 fans that came at least some car pooled, that's $6000 bucks, maybe as some walked
  14. The dude charged for parking...a mile away in the freezing cold. This man is a complete imbecile...lol...you want to talk about attendance? BWAHAHA
  15. If there was ever a FOIL to file...this is the one! LOL
  16. It's rather simple...in the prior contract Brown went back to back to back...Bensons hands were tied and he was still relatively new trying to not ruffle many feathers. He didn't have the same reservations this time around and Brown didn't force his hand by having 3 straight losing seasons. Had he not renewed Brown, MB would have been run out on a rail...
  17. He's done close to nothing...he deserves no credit for most of that stuff. Oh he'll claim credit but those close to the school knows he doesn't deserve it.
  18. This needs to be the way, people need to realize that the stability that we had with Brown doesn't exist at this level of basketball. The goal should be a 5 year run and hopefully a few NCAA trips out of it. Mediocrity isn't the way...
