    Bz was most definitely not the first and only choice when Mike White would have logically been under consideration; when Bz was hired, Mike White had no head coaching experience anywhere

    and there have been several who have posted over the years that Bz was not the first and only choice
    And many other posters and #sauces over the years that strongly suggested [name redacted] was the man Wellman wanted, and got.

    I understand the sentiment that the Furman coach doesn’t have the experience but I’d love to get a coach who coached like this.

    It's like we picked the only bad choice of Wojo White Howland Miller Smart etc... I know they weren't all real candidates, but they got a lot of discussion on that thread.
    I saw Miss St play the other night against South Carolina and was intrigued that Howland was now the Miss St. coach. If I remember, his detractors on this board were worried about a slow style and too much emphasis on 50 point slugfest games. Well, in my sample of one game, Miss ST has a bunch of racehorses that fly up and down the court and 4 out of 5 starters are money from 3 point range. South Carolina pulled off the upset in OT in a wildly entertaining game, but Miss St is ranked 14th in the nation and they looked NOTHING like the board worried that a Howland team would look like.

    Personally, I would not at all be bothered by the lack of experience. We need to roll the dice on a young, aggressive coach.

    Nate Oats is my favorite but I'm fearful he'll make a run in the tournament and Ron won't have enough money to match UCLA or others

    Lol, Google "Gaudio Fired" and "[name redacted] hired Wake Forest" and click a few articles...1 minute max.

    presumably nate oats will be one of the hottest names in the coaching carousel and as a result, i don't think will be within our reach

    Other than UCLA what other job openings will be better than Wake Forest?

    That's one minute more than most posters myself included do in research before posting

If anything, it sounds possible that Wellman could have reached out to [name redacted], found he was interested and then made the decision to fire Gaudio.

    I'm sure others could have been contacted in that time, possibly by concerned folks in the AD or boosters, or just as a matter of due diligence. But Wellman was the only person with [name redacted] on his list...if [name redacted] wasn't at the top or damn near it, it makes zero sense that he was finalizing negotiations two days after Gaudio was fired.
    Pretty sure it took considerably longer to hire Manning and Clawson. Obviously the postseason was still going on after [name redacted] and Grobe resigned but it was still a much longer process.

    is the adidas trial officially a huge stinking pile of nothing? because some folks in addition to Pitino deserve to get fired over all of that

    The tapes implicating head coaches won't be made public until April. If they lead to people being fired it will be mid-April, presumably after schools like UCLA and Wake Forest have already made their hires.

    Yep, and you know who hired him? The same guy who got us Clawson.

    I didn't realize Mike Buddie was there.

    Like, almost any other job in America.

    Pretty bad take. Wake Forest plays in the #1 conference, has brand new top of the line facilities thanks to Shah and CP3, has a history of players going on to have NBA success, is in a state with an abundance of basketball players to recruit year in and year out, gets national TV exposure when ranked, and has a good program history prior to this decade. Most schools cannot match all that.

    At this point, not sure what separates us from Depaul or Rutgers as a job. Good conference, a decade of shit results.

    Does all that come out on top when weighed against Ron Wellman?
