  1. Is Bill Moos going to give me a year off my donations?

    #1 reason Kenya left is security. He's "starting over" with another coach at year 1 and will likely have 3-5 years minimum as long as he performs OK. He is probably making more money as well. But I think the uncertainty here is the #1 reason for leaving. Heck, Miles understands I'm sure. He gets how the business works. He tried to make it worth Kenya's time to stay but it was a good opportunity.
  2. Let me get this straight...

    All of the below, just my opinion: The 1 year contract extension looks bad. Now, who knows what was going on behind closed doors with Miles' agent and university representatives. Who knows how honest everyone is with each other about the situation and how they're leaning during negotiations? If they could be, and I was Miles, I would ask to extend the contract 2-3 more years, but reduce the buyout by 1/2 per month or 2/3 per month were he to be terminated. Essentially the university would owe the same total amount of compensation, but there's more of a chance of an appearance of commitment (both sides could even "sell" it as such) and it makes it easier to hire an assistant and recruit ... or at least maximizes the chances of success in those areas. I think what happened is Moos went looking to see who was interested and didn't get a lot of positive feedback regarding interest OR felt he didn't have an adequate amount of time to sell the job to anyone. He's probably leaning toward terminating Miles after next year, so he makes the fiscally prudent move by only extending a year. It just seems like all parties could've gotten together better and "sold" this whole thing better to where it doesn't at least appear to be such a gap in commitment between the two parties. As it stands, it has all the appearances of Miles being a "lame duck." That's never a good look. Again, just my opinions ...
  3. What to do with Miles contract?

    Which players matter? The ones that leave or the ones that choose to stay? We need a new "5 year plan" ... Miles doubled down on the transfer game (which yes, is a big part of college hoops today) rather than building a culture and program imho. He sells playing time and freedom to play in a less structured offense. He has had blips of success with that so far, but it's not a sustainable plan long-term. All just my opinions.

    Didn't Daum already come out and state he was staying at SDSU?
  5. Coach Miles

    Ya, me too. I think he'll get a 3 year extension likely.
  6. Coach Miles

    And that's kind of where I'm at ... I feel like we are delaying the inevitable. If Moos wants to make a hire it might be now.
  7. Coach Miles

    All of this, and this is why I feel the way I feel ... would suck to extend and then have to fire (like it seems like we've done with football coach after football coach the last few times). If it was true Eichorst wasn't "allowed" to fire Miles last year due to not being allowed to make any more major coaching changes for the time being (a rumor that had been going around), then maybe Bounds and Green already had a sentiment about Miles that they have passed on to Moos. I think it's possible we are slow playing Miles thinking if he leaves for elsewhere, he leaves ... or maybe Moos is seeing what he might be able to work in terms of candidates he'd like to ideally hire if necessary.
  8. What to do with Miles contract?

    I am very pleased with our number of wins but let's also remember we play 3-5 more games per year "these days" versus the glory years.
  9. What to do with Miles contract?

    It might be strategically encouraged on Moos's part ... not saying it should or will ... but he could slow play or offer a lower $s and/or time extension on some level, encouraging Miles to leave.

    I will bet that we don't make it. I would love to be wrong, but fear I'm not. I will donate either way!
  11. NCAA or bust.

    I didn't say they were program changers ... and in essence you are partially making my point by saying they weren't that great of recruits in the first place.
  12. NCAA or bust.

    I'm saying his HS recruiting has not panned out very well over the time he has been here. Go look at the list ... Nana, Jordy and Xavier the verdict is all still out on these players ... I am talking about known quantities that have been recruited and stuck around out of HS. Glynn and Tai SO FAR and yes Roby was a good get and a nice pickup as a diamond in the rough.
  13. NCAA or bust.

    If you would read, I said that Glynn and Tai are about the only contributors that will have completed their eligibility here while being HS recruits.
  14. NCAA or bust.

    I'm not comparing him to Doc and Barry. That was the past. So, just checking ... our HS recruiting has been awful for forever, so it should just be OK that it sucks ongoing?
  15. NCAA or bust.

    A crazy statement unless you look at actual numbers. I'm not saying the B1G isn't tougher and the schedule wasn't tougher, but that was a lot of pretty bad basketball and underachieving imho.
