    we still have recruits tweeting out stuff like this, from the days when we were relevant with an exciting atmosphere:

    Public call out: For the handful of the people over the years, including today, who have sent PM's and left Pos/Negrep implying that "we" don't know the whole story, aren't privy to the truth and should stop opining; spill the damn beans. It's been 9 years, two massive failures at coach, a program on life support, and an AD on the way out. The statute of limitations has probably passed. What's keeping you from coming forward with the truth? Put up or shut the hell up.

    Edit: This needs it's own thread:

    An incoming coach would see that Ron Wellman has a history of keeping coaches too long and allowing them to fail. If anything him being here also provides a sense of job security to an incoming coach.

    I see why that would appeal to a loser coach. I would think a competitive coach with a little moxy would prefer someone competent and who was not a huge twat to work for.

    Not sure how Rod Strickland ended up being a big help to Depaul, but whatever.

    The program has proven it can win and compete -- and win big at times -- in our current conference. DePaul and Rutgers have not proven that

    Grobe resigned on Dec 2 and Clawson was announced as the new coach on Dec 10.

    Bz resigned on March 20 and Manning was hired on April 4.

    March 2, 2005 to be exact. That game was Senior Day for Downey, Levy, and Vytas. The next game was the nut punch game and the rest is history.

    I think we should take a guy that has had success at more than one place regardless of size and has moved to a bigger school with each stop. Not exactly sure who that is, but he is out there.
    Bingo. You win the board today.

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.
    The only logical thing here is the rumor of Dino sleeping with students was true. Why else would you fire Dino and then hone in on a loser like Bz? He was either a Les Robinson hire or Wellman is the biggest idiot in the history of the world. Both are equally possible I guess.

    They didn't fire Dino for the purpose of hiring BZ.

    If they hired BZ without firing Dino, you would have had 2 head coaches.

    YOU CANNOT HAVE 2 HEAD COACHES!!!!

    WHY DO YOU LIE???? WHY DO YOU LIE??????

    I didnít realize that. Thatís basically the end of the golden age of Wake basketball.

    Could argue Bz had that resume, to a degree.

    The only resume Bz had was that of an established, perennial loser. Anything else is revisionist history.
