  1. The short answer is "yes" if you are lucky enough to have USF hire you. Anywhere else and results are expected. But at USF if you lose, we have to look at your buyout to decide. If you are at USF and you fail to adequately address issues of racism in your program (allegedly), then we have to look at your buyout and then we might even extend you. Heck, I'd imagine that CJL might have survived the choking incident if it happened at USF now. USF is a sanctuary city, errrr.... athletics department.
  2. Nah, its just all of the underperforming leaders in the athletic department are all the same and hard to differentiate.
  3. There are potential options that too - and while I am not a Kelly fan, I'd prefer to see him stay in the role but adjust; and then there are clear, immediate opportunities for fundraising that only take vision and effort.
  4. There is a pretty lengthy list of capable and likely available replacements for Gregory, and no I am nowhere near on that list.
  5. For every one of these examples there are 100+ where a losing coach is just a bad coach. But the point is valid in that we are less patient now as a society, and especially a sporting society. But as it relates to USF, four years is enough time to try and field a .500 team in conference (he is 23-46 in the AAC), and more importantly is that the program is in a nosedive. Maybe if there was an upward trend I could understand the argument for keeping him, but the most common reason mentioned for retaining him is the $435k buyout, not because anyone honestly believes USF can with the AAC with him.
  6. When you are incapable of generating the revenues necessary to compete in your conference (for each of the last 2 years USF in last in the AAC in revenues), these are the results you can expect. And when you realize that you have the wrong guy leading a program you have to ride it out. The irony here is that when you leave cancers in place to burn your programs to the ground revenues will only continue to shrink relative to your peers in conference. You cannot save your way to growth.
  7. Mohl is an a great spot. Great weather, nice payday and a boss who doesn't hold anyone accountable.
  8. With Gregory rumored to be offered an extension it should make it easier to recruit, and would put to bed any speculation around where he stands in the investigation.
  9. Our company is paying employees $100 to get vaccinated, but no word yet on how they are going to handle return to work: Do you mandate employees get the vaccine to return to work? For those not allowed to return to work because they refuse to get vacicnated, can they use that as a ploy to indefinitely work from home? If I am vaccinated and you allow people who are not, back into the office how is that going to be safe? If I come back and get infected is the company liable somehow? Its alot for organizations to think through.
  10. Have we improved the QB position? I need to see it on the field before we can say that.
  11. Next season will be very interesting - new players, coach on the hot seat, etc. Will it be successful or not is a different story and look forward to seeing how this plays out.
  12. Well, ESPN is the one of the big facilitators of the Super League, and they were also the one that initiated the demise of the Big East. If it makes them more money - and ESPN/Disney want more money - and they can convince their business partners that it will make them more money, then anything possible. Whether a forced relegation is ultimately part of a tiered DI football set up will likely determine how much widespread acceptance there is for that kind of product.
  13. Conferences would go away. But you are right, it likely won't happen unless the greed just goes to a whole new level. And even then the P5 elite wouldn't even consider relegation. They'd leave the rest of the NCAA to go figure it out - not their problem.
  14. Well, the Top 44 is alot better than the Top 64 which is what the P5 is today. Moving into 3 tiers of 44, while allowing from some movement between tiers, would lead to significantly more money for most of those in the P5 today. The bottom of the P5 would (e.g. Vanderbilt, Rutgers) get relegated but they would be in the minority. For the Super League being proposed in soccer, those 12-15 clubs are going to dictate the terms from the rest of soccer. The upper crust of the P5 could, and likely will, do the same. If there is more money to be made, the elite schools will find a way to make it.
