    Like who? Which ones did Wellman have a problem with?

    Keep in mind Dino didnít recruit that many players after Skip passed.

    I really have no idea , Tony Qoods had some trouble, but he was a Skip recruit, Clark and Teague where both Skip guys. Rhe only players I remember having any trouble was J.T Terrell, was Melvin Tabb a Dino recruit? I do not know if it holds water but but I did hear Dino was well liked.

    It is ridiculous more people won't admit that firing Dino was a mistake after what we've experienced the last 9 years. There is a reason we don't have other coaches you all think we should have hired instead. They didn't want to be here.

    The mistake was hiring him full time which compounded into more mistakes.

    Thereís a reason why he didnít have a coaching job until his buddy got the Louisville gig.

    I donít know why Wake fans settle for coaches nobody else wants.

    Dino was better than what came after him. But that's faint praise. We need a better coach than Dino was.

    Sure, if you just want to be a dick. People making decisions, I am going to go out on a limb and say aren't weighing assclown arguments, they are weighing football, soccer, tennis, facilities, fundraising, etc...

    So you can have the assclown discussion again, it just has no value other than venting. Repeatedly.

    My argument is that it doesn't matter whether Wellman is or was shit, good or great. The question is can he get his first choice hire at the end of the year. Let's say he goes after the Buffalo coach. How likely is he to say yes? I don't think very likely. Oats has never had to recruit 4-star recruits in his life, or even had the opportunity to - can he get them? Sure. Would he want to try his luck at Wake Forest? In the ACC? And recruit against the big boys? With a dead man walking AD? Possibly.

    But if I were Oats, I'd look at other jobs too where the relationship I started with the AD was going to matter 6 years down the road because s/he was still going to be there. ..

    This is why I HOPE Wellman pushed the decision to fire Manning out a year. He knows this and wasn't ready March 2018. My FEAR is that he's not going to be ready 90 days from now either. We have zero indication he is even leaning out the door. That said, Wellman has been old school no transparency for decades. Even when our football team has been exciting the last few years, our stadium looks like a tomb. Almost as bad as Duke. That's because Wellman has focused on corporate and afluent sponsorship. I have no doubt the new press box area is popping. But he has essentially ignored the general fan. It doesn't seem like we have any strategy to fill the corner seats. In basketball, Prosser took that role upon himself, which in hindsight is pretty remarkable. Clawson simply doesn't have time, and it may be the reason he leaves should we get a 9 to 10 win season going and we still can't get fan momentum.

    Anyway, my argument for Wellman going has nothing to do with what he has done to now and everything to do with how likely he can knock a home run next hire vs. his replacement. Wellman's job is way more intriguing to a young AD than our basketball coaching position. IMO. Fill that one first.

    Firing a coach coming off an NCAA bid who had a 67% winning percentage was dumb. I said it at the time and said that we risk having a decade of irrelevance. And here we are...Ö.

    Which is why Wake needs better people making decisions. Unfortunately that extends beyond athletics.

    And lol at sexual assault allegations not being tolerated at Wake.

    I didn't but you were correct. The whole thing is just Shakepereanly awful. Prosser makes us totally relevant - a top 10 program. Not the very best bench coach in the world, but the very best coach Wake Forest could want if mentoring, success and enthusiasm are three of the most important variables. He literally took it upon himself to gin up student enthusiasm and create our environment that competed and was more geniune than Duke's (which I have always felt was fairly lame with their chant sheets,etc.). He was an absolute threat to Coach K because Prosser was fun. Coach K is everything you want in a college coach EXCEPT fun.

    Anywho, if I was the AD, I'd want to find a guy who can coach, run tight practices, and had a personality that can at least play in the same arena as Prosser's.

    Incredible.

I mean a job to forget it all happened. Two classy men right there... (or a completely fabricated story hmmmm)

Skip was pretty witty and intellectual (and Irish) which covered up any issues they may have had with it, plus he fit Wake's intellectual culture. Dino did not and likely accepted some actions from players that the WASPs disapproved of. Without Skip there to smooth things over, things unraveled.

    IMO Wellman fired Dino and found the most WASPy coach he could find.....[redacted]. There had to be major culture issues under Dino which is why Wellman kept stressing culture, but no one seems to know any specifics which is odd. We've never been given a rationale, other than lack of post-season success. When [redacted] didn't work out, Wellman started to attack Skip because a lot of people were then questioning the need to fire Dino if what we ended up with was worse. There were no real complaints from Wellman about lack of success either and a longer leash. Wellman then blamed the culture problem on Skip, which was pretty disgusting, but that fits the narrative.

    I don't know anything but I always felt something like that happened.

    Great another Dino/[] thread full of speculation and conjecture. Ball State Deac needs to go ahead and post the facts.

    Pretty obvious there are no facts. Just more conspiracy theories to feed the gullible. Need a full investigation anyway.

    Some of the boosters didnít like that Dino lost each of his ACC tourney games. You know that wasnít fun for them. He didnít seem to care about it enough to suit them.
