    1. Most (nearly all) of the Board of Governors seem to feel that way.

    Um, yes? That is how they wanted it, and why they changed the rule. Most feel it’s a good thing that most transfers aren’t forced upon the players, and that they don’t have to sit out a year after...

    I don't know if I said that on here or not, but I've felt that way for a while.

    Yeah, the one person that seems rather unscathed in all this, at least in the long term, is Brannen. All signs point to him being about to get paid $5 million to not work. There is a word for...

    I'm anxious to see who they get next. If an AD pulls a stunt like this, it's usually a good idea to be pretty sure who that next person is going to be. Richard Pitino is available!!
