  1. I struggle to think he would be gone if we won the AE Tourney. Anything short of that may have been predetermined but also may have been appropriate depending on your point of view.
  2. And to be fair it would've had a few if WB had stayed too. I would think a lot of our guys (the ones that already have a couple of schools under their belt) might not be in the best position to transfer again if they are looking to get a degree. Maybe this helps us keep a couple of valuable pieces.
  3. I knew I'd get undercut here but you went right to the bottom w/ free. I'm out.
  4. I have 3 years of assistant CYO girls coaching experience to my name. Hat officially in the ring and I'll do it for $250K, a suit allowance, and some kind of deal w/ Across the Street Pub. I've got a few assistant coaches lined up too. I've got a style the kids would love too.
  5. You're a lot closer than I am but maybe his board asked him to justify $200k/year for an arena that for it's biggest draw was getting the same 1,800 people every game.
  6. And based on the salary and the retirement package in NY it's doubtful that Dartmouth was anything more than a lateral move.
  7. I lay blame on both parties here. Facilities needed some work. Some of the moves that GDAC took were puzzling (awarding 1 year donor at say $1,500 vs. a 20 year donor at $500/year). And parking charge was stupid. But (and I'm beating a dead horse here) if you aren't winning you need to at least entertain me. His style just isn't what people want to see. My opinion Will would rather lose 52-50 than 76-74. I give him credit for recognizing late this year that he had some guys that could push the ball.
  8. That's a fair viewpoint. Realistic? Not for a hungry coach w/ an ego looking for a job.
  9. Agree. If he leaves after this kind of change that's not good. I was going to use coward but thought better.
  10. Will you give the next coach a 4 year pass because the cupboard may be equally as empty when the dust stettles? I also struggle w/ the Cremo/Nichols setting us back for so long. They only had one year left. Why would that damage us for 3+years. Fully on board w/ the Academic All Americans and stated it before he's seem to recruited quality kids. Fully on board w/ Summer School too. Facilities I struggle w/ and maybe unfair but it's a one word answer: Vermont. I do think his style (playing) hurt his ability to recruit. From what I'm told Cremo fell into his lap. Other tha
  11. A bit unfair to point this out but it's interesting that for a 7 year stretch he was 70 games over .500. That means 50 games under .500 the other 13 seasons. Some tough ones early obviously but he's basically a .500 coach in a terrible conference.
  12. Exactly. Who'd want Gallagher. His best years are only okay in my view. Brown was an anomaly sticking around when he was winning early. I don't think he's had a ton of calls lately.
  13. Don't know too much about him but if we're looking at Siena assistants????
  14. No insider info here but safe to assume it's both and production makes it acceptable. If it's only personality clashes and UA was winning this doesn't happen.
  15. As a long term fan I have mixed emotions. WB had some great years here and produced by all accounts high level, high character student-athletes. For that he's to be commended and thanked. Is Benson great/awful? He seems to not have a lot of fans. Are our facilities up to par? Absolutely not. That said, this program is stale and was trending downward. Outside of Rizutto no 4 year recruits had even a moderate impact on this season. Reasons and excuses are fine but over time this falls on the Head Coach. Add the contract situation into this (and an apparent personality conflic
