    They Fired Tom Allen!

    FFS, let’s go get Harbaugh!! Dude knows how to coach and compete. How much is Dolson’s buyout? His greatest attribute is shamelessly begging donors to kick in to get us out of horrible contracts. Their willingness will definitely be spent after this call to pitch in!

    I think your theories are much closer to the reality of these types of situations…huge influencers with tremendous personal stakes on the line, big time $$$ from multiple interests, agents and future deal promises, coaching connections, etc. This has always happened — NIL just opened it up to let in $$$ from programs who tried to keep noses more clean…and in my view created at least the opportunity for a more level playing field. Kid was committed to Duke…and ALL that comes w/it…shoe money, agency, nba immediate exposure, family jobs, houses, the brotherhood forever, etc. The bar was set at the top from the get go…playing time scenario changed, but expectations on full market value were already set by THE industry leader (ok, arguably KY in the game, KU right there too). Now it’s a scramble to see where/who can best match all that, and also maybe feel like the right fit. We’re banking on the later, as we should against a commuter school and a desolate place in BFE Lawrence. Let’s hope we’ve got our ducks in a row on the former too…it matters…a lot!

    Remember — Langford was a super solid lean, if not lock, for Louisville, w/strong adidas backing, until they went up in flames and looked like they might be penalized w/one of their many scandals. Forget if it was the strippers, bags of cash at the 7/11, Italian restaurant post-dinner table action, or one of the others…too many to track. Aside from maybe better upfront contract cash, Adidas hasn’t delivered on brand, and all the ‘support’ that come with it, for IU like for other premier schools. Seem to be part of the problem…throwing picked over bones here and there - rather than a true partner in recruiting advocacy — which we know happens at a lot of places!

    Any Chance Purdue and Matt Painter Part Ways?

    I’m thinking Cuonzo Martin is their replacement ceiling — West Lafayette! Pork chop’s not going anywhere.

    How long until till the Izzo infantile super rant at the refs…seems like he’s holding back for the 2nd half?

    Scott Dolson

    Agree…maybe should add QB to the list of those who they should be succession planning for too! If he’s presumably the BOT lead for athletics, his batting average is mid at best.
