    Wow, things so bad in Miami Chris Lykes benched to start the second half. Miami trailing by 15.

    Humiliating. Embarrassing. Just awful.

    God is reminding El Cubano who runs the show. The price for his betrayal is coming due. I heard rumors that Hewitt will be joining him as an assistant coach.

    I hope we can get Caputo when Larranaga is axed. I think Caputo's recruiting plus a non-senile head coach like Paulsen could get us back to winning NCAA Tournament games.

    Can't complain about that. Beats apathy.

    I also heard that Ernie Nestor is interviewing for Miam's Men's Basketball Operations Manager and Paul Westhead for Physical Conditioning and Head Trainer. There may even be an opening for Gunston as Chancellor of Cheerleading and Jon Bon Jovi for Pep Band Director.

    Haven’t been following this closely. What happened with the FBI investigation? Factor in their poor season?

    Odds he retires?

    I think they dropped the investigation into Coach L.

    Indeed, the FBI is no longer investigating Coach L. Miami's trouble this year is that one of their players (a McDonald's all-american, I think) has been suspended this year and next and has chosen to drop out of school. Plus they have had a couple of injuries if the game announcers are to be believed.

    FBI investigation essentially destroyed the entire recruiting class, which they had to make up of transfers.

    Top returning player ineligible for season as psyclone said.

    Multiple other players have left/been kicked off/hurt, so the roster is severely depleted and thin. Hell, VCU's Gilmore was supposed to be one of their reserve players this year. Ironically, they have their own forward named Miller who is redshirting that they have decided not to burn the RS on, since the season is essentially lost.

    Could very well bounce back to a fringe top 25 team next year with Oklahoma transfer McGusty, two 4* stud recruits joining the team and possibly another grad transfer. Fans are not calling for his head.

    There are very few actual fans so it's not a national story. But all the Mason fair-weather fans that donated money are very unhappy.

    If the bottom half of the ACC and a borderline NIT team is "fringe," perhaps.

    Not true. I have been told Coach L is still very much on the Bureau's radar.
