  1. Tyree being deemed UDFA, makes AJ's value even higher in my mind. Everything changed once AJ was on the field and things got worse when AJ was off. I'm incredibly shocked he didn't get drafted. The Bosa kid got an injury sat out most of the year got drafted #2. Ed Oliver nursed an injury all season, got drafted #9. Hawaii's Ursua had two monster seasons in the run and shoot offense, but tore his ACL in 2017 and had a lingering injury in 2018 similar to AJ this year...however Ursua skipped his bowl game to prepare for the NFL, and got healthy enough to get drafted in the 7th despite below average NFL size... Hawaii's offense sputtered in the bowl without Ursua and UH got blown out by La Tech. Meanwhile AJ kept coming back when he had nothing left to prove, almost won us a MAC title on one leg, yet ends up UDFA. Message seems clear the NFL only pays lip service to the character part of being there for your team, but ultimately they only care about the 40 and cone times... AJ vs 6th round pick Scott Miller 2017: AJ 8 for 160 2 TDs - Miller 10 for 108 1 TD 2018: AJ 4 for 26 0 TDs - Miller 4 for 115 2 TD (Miller caught a 63 yard TD while BGSU was down 44-7 midway through the 4th)
  2. My takeaway UB women more or less > than Bona men?
  3. Ah my math was very rough but should be 50 x 11 sports treating men’s and women’s xc, indoor and outdoor as one team... = 550 football = 300 wrestling is no change... cost +850k Track possibly lower as, my niece ran indoor/outdoor at Cuse and they mostly ran in- the northeast outside of the ACC champs and the NCAA regional everything else in a conference change is subject to negotiation and a vote. UB would need to negotiate around all the “but what abouts” which means we’d need to be in a place where the aac needs is more than we need them, which I only see as possible if UConn leaves and espn Tells the aac to invite ub
  4. I didn't assume he was on vacation. I floated it as a scenario where one could be somewhere (i.e. private plane) while under contract at UB, where his location (private plane) would not be University Business. The narrative at the time was if he's on Bama's private plane while under contract, that has to be a breach, my point was not necessarily, for example, if he was on vacation, in most cases you can't punish someone for where they are or what they wear... Why would I throw that out, well I've seen this exact scenario playout, and HR said it was vacay we can't touch it. I could have done a better job communicating that. I feel we're throwing out stuff at guys, and I know I don't know the full story, I'm just saying there may be alternatives to the worst case scenario...now if you have inside info and it is the worst case, then I'm happy whoever the low-character people are, are not associated with my school, cause eventually the low-character traits come out. Truce?
  5. Me: IF he was on vacation, he probably wouldnt be violating his contract You: You said he's on vacation and I know for a fact he wasn't, why won't you admit you're wrong, because you own Bull Run and you're in loveee with Hodgson.
  6. Agreed, UB's pace was 16th in the nation. UAB's 297th. I want to keep playing fast.
  7. Me: Why do we care who employs Bryan Hodgson? You: Obviously we want to know Me: Yea but why You: Obviously we want to know Me: Yea but why
  8. Ok well I don't care if Alabama gets the death penalty. I was wondering why this is relevant for UB.
  9. Well who is getting more than 2.6 M in the PAC 12? Oregon - Utah - Arizona. So the premier team in the conference pays 4th. USC doesn't disclose but they are probably in the neighborhood. ASU pays Hurley 2.1 million. UB went to the round of 32 and we moved to make Oats the highest paid guy in the conference. UCLA goes to final fours and they are OK with their coaches being paid 4th/5th in conference
  10. I guess I don't get the "there" there. If it's recruiting violation, that's a violation for Alabama, NCAA isn't going to award you any recruits or any restitution if Bama illegally stole one from you. If it's breach of contract, there will be lawyers and a negotiation, and most likely a minor financial settlement. If both parties just say it is what it is and wish each other good luck, then that's all that it will be. Only thing I get, is the sentiment of "if he is in Bama gear, I don't want him hired here to be the HC" I think that's fair, that said if he is the best candidate, I personally would hope we'd hire the best person.
  11. What do people obviously care about in this thread?
  12. I'm biased, but there are schools that will figure out what everyone is paying and add a zero and there are schools like UCLA that figure out what everyone else is paying and remove a zero and then say you should be happy to work here for a paycut. They offered a coach a 1.2 million paycut to move to a higher cost of living city and rebuild a program instead of staying at his program that is on elite 8 autopilot. That doesn't scream power move... to me it looks like they offered it to show they are willing to spend, all the while hoping he declined the offer...they can then hire someone for cheap but tell there fans we didn't cheap out, we offered someone 8 million.
  13. If he is illegally recruiting for Alabama, that would be a violation for Alabama right? That's what everyone cares about? Also I based the "no one cares about recruiting violation" on the fact that there was criticism lobbed at Brook for reporting compliance violations.
  14. Yes. They paid their old coach 2.6 million. They offered Coach Calipari 8 million a year, problem is it's 1.2 million LESS than what he currently makes. So either they don't have the resources to compete with Kentucky, or they have the resources and they are cheap.
  15. I think this is a narc thread because I don't believe anyone cares if recruiting violations are occurring, I think people are just upset and need someone to be upset at. BH didn't wake up and say I'm going to pull a power play to leverage recruiting to steal Oats' job... he woke up one day and his boss took another job. With his short resume that means if he's really lucky, he'll get the UB HC job, if he's lucky he'll get a job where his boss goes, and a 99% chance if those first two don't happen he'll be unemployed. If you woke up in that situation, what would you do? Secondly, UB is in a coaching search, do you want whoever UB hires to change their avatar to UB, get here and immediately start recruiting? If so, don't be a hypocrite. Again, you can feel like the actors in this situation acted without class, but that doesn't mean we as a fanbase have to be without grace.
