    I mean I didn't get a chance to wave that $20 by the people I was sitting with on Wednesday, I guess I lost my chance to find out a lot of info lmao.

    PMP has already cut them off. I don't have the deepest pockets, or inclination, to give $ to a program that has zero commitment to actually putting a competitive product on the floor.

    Money provided by the school and not the state. A lot of state universities do this to make it look like their coaches aren't the highest paid employees.

    So, despite UVA's and Tech's basketball and football coach's making $4+ million, none of them are in the top 5 of highest paid employees in the state. Instead, it's supposedly Virginia Tech's vice president for advancement (somehow he makes more money than Tech's president does).

    Call me crazy, but I think I could coach Mason to a 12th place finish for a lot cheaper than 800k.

    Doubtful...

    But also think about this, in our last game of the season Kier, Boyd, Hartwell, and Dady were all on the bench hurt. The only guards we had available were XJ, Greene, Miller, and JDS.

    I thought we'd at least get through the weekend before anyone got fired. Figured schools wouldn't want to come across as being insensitive. Grand Canyon lets Dan Majerle go:
    https://www.espn.com/mens-college-b...canyon-fires-dan-majerle-7-seasons-head-coach

    I find this really interesting:
    "Given its deep pockets and support from the school, Grand Canyon has been a job generating plenty of buzz in the industry for the past couple of months.

    Former Louisville head coach Rick Pitino is among the names that have been linked to this job over the past few weeks, along with Saint Mary's coach Randy Bennett, Pacific's Damon Stoudamire, former Vanderbilt head coach Bryce Drew and former Nebraska coach Tim Miles"

    So I guess they'll go after someone a bit bigger than the Colgate coach......

    If there was a team that hung banners for great practices it would definitely be our team.

    Ive never heard a coach talk so much about practice. I wonder if Paulsen has a weird fetish or something.

    Reports seem to suggest if Pitino comes back it’ll be to Iona.
