    I do not disagree. I think the points that @Ngw7183 was making about whether donors are going to be willing to shell out big money for a buyout would likely come with strings attached to hiring someone who is more of a sure thing. We have not done the sure thing hire before and like you described with one donor willing to contribute a lot of money if we could have hired BS last time, I think this is a similar point that NGW is making. Sure he may be one of a few who think Woody should stay but the rest of his post makes a strong case for why some big money donors may become willing to act but only if we are able to land a sure thing.

    Law advice - Auto

    My daughter was recently in an auto accident which totaled the car and sent her to the hospital. Fortunately, she walked away with a fractured sternum, sprained ankle and several bruises so we are very thankful. She had an older car and it was totaled (value ~ $5000-$7000) and her current medical bills are around $10,000 before insurance. The other driver (Truck going east bound) was waiting to turn across oncoming traffic and as the light was changing to yellow he turned into this intersection. My daughter was traveling westbound into the intersection at about 45 mph and the cars collided. No witnesses to the accident came forward to shed any more light. The other driver claimed my daughter ran a red light she is convinced it was just turning yellow. I went to the intersection recently and watched the sequence and i could not see a scenario where the accident would have been her fault. IF she did run a red light, then the truck turning in front of her also ran the red light (both at fault at a minimum or maybe more him since he turned in front of on coming traffic). IF the light was yellow as she described it would clearly be the truck's fault. My insurance said it would likely go to arbitration since both parties are saying "not me". So my question is, would it be worth contacting an attorney for this? The costs on our side are not large. My daughter does have some fear now to drive so even adding that as pain and suffering I know this is not a big case for any attorney. But I have heard that insurance companies have sort of decided it is not worth the money to fight on small deals like this and will just agree to settle with a no-fault and move on. Any advice would be appreciated.

    It seems some only read your last paragraph and have missed several good points. We are looking for some big $s to come in and pay a large buyout and those same people should be asking what are we going to do differently this time to ensure we get it right. Perhaps, if the wheels fall off completely the rest of the year they might feel a change is necessary regardless but if I were being asked once again to put up big money for a buyout I would want more certainty that we get it right. For Dusty to fall into this tier he would have to have an incredible run in the NCAAT which is an almost unfair expectation but is probably necessary for him to pass up some older, more established coaches who have proven over time they can build a top 20 team year after year.

    While you don’t overlook giving up a 20 point deficit at the half the defensive pressure adjustment here was a good call. Can it last?

    Rabby made a good comment about needing to have success with HS recruiting and some gap filling with the portal. If you recruit that HS level well you raise your floor.

    Seemed like a lot of Booing in that first half.

    Similar name on other boards? I know I have seen that or a similar name.

    Good catch, that is true but, i still think it is a stretch to say he kept Archie's staff when he kept 1 asst, 1 staff and the strength guy. There are plenty of other things to focus on.

    Yeah i made that same point. He kept 1 assistant and 1 staff member (Walsh) and brought in several new amongst them Fife, Cal, Ya, Thad and Hulls. Thad and Fife left soon after but still he only kept 1 assistant. I think that is a good idea for most new coaches if there is talent on the team you want to retain.

    Woody only kept one of Archie's assistant coaches, Hunter. Ya is new and Fife was new. Walsh was on Archie's staff but only moved up to Assistant after Fife was let go. Calbert, Hulls are new additions to the extended staff. So I don't really get this idea that he kept Archie's staff.

    This is not a sour grapes we never wanted him post, but I am not sure how many recruits we want that would choose us after how we played this year. Supposedly DQ was leaning our way because of Woodys ability to get TJD and Ware to the NBA. That is a fine part of the analysis but I think we would be better in the long run focusing on kids who want to go to a winning program. So had DQ chose us despite next year not looking good, no high end PG signed and primarily interested because of the NBA potential, it would seem to go against our desires to compete for titles. Now I don’t think DQ is a bad kid or would keep us from winning but I never got why we needed him given our roster.

    Appreciate the post and the thoughts but does this identify you to the staff/AD dept? Maybe they don’t follow the boards but if they do, I just wanted to make sure they don’t come for a visit and hand you a cardboard box.

    I think it would be very hard to stay the course if this happens. Fan pressure, media pressure, maybe some NIL $ pressure will increase to make a change. Fans in AH and wherever the BT tournament are will likely voice their displeasure at games and this will just add to the pressure.

    Is the Trilly news all we are going on or has there been more. I mean, it isn’t like Trilly has been as accurate as he was initially

    Not limiting the ability (of the AD) to make changes (to the HC position). Giving Woody the $1m raise was probably not needed and not really warranted but does not further limit Dolson's ability to fire Woody whereas an extension, like Crean got, could have raised the buyout.
