    Most of those tunnels are already in place.

    At the moment that space happens to be occupied by the baby blue clad team from cheater hell.

    In all fairness, the NCSU administration nuked the program after his first year with respect to admissions and academic progress.

    Yes. Les Robinson presided over a program on double secret probation. He had no chance, as he wasn't able to recruit good basketball players because they wouldn't be admitted to school. He did what he could. That is also why he was kept on as long as he was.

    So, Wellman has put Wake on triple secret probation with first the firing of 30 games over .500 Gaudio and then the disastrous subsequent hirings of [ ] and DFL.

Then if Danny doesn't like being 2nd on the bench he can quit and we avoid payout?

    With the amount we are paying I would hope we would have the ability to hire an Exec. coach to put him over the program, but that might be a hard one for a new coach to deal with Danny boy whining and moaning if he isn't happy.
    No fire his ass

    If John Currie doesnt fire Manning things could get really UGLY for him, it wont be as bad as the UT fiasco but does Currie really want to be hated by the Wake fanbase? does he want another situation like that on his hands? he knows whats at stake and if he does the right thing he can become a hero to Wake fans instantly.

    I want to believe this, but is it actually true? At this point, it seems like it would be met with helpless indifference and apathy from fans who used to care.

    Meanwhile, the influential moneybags continue their blind acceptance of whatever drivel the AD, including Currie, wants to serve.

    Not sure about that. Checking for tickets at the Notre Dame football game site, i was surprised by the number of tickets sold. Actually I know many former college basketball fans who have simply lost interest in the game the way it is now.

    Let's back up. Can you remember any time a HC was demoted and stayed to be an assistant?

    WFU vs. GT tickets going for $1. We have hit a new low.
    We're at the threshold of hell.

    I think this is spot-on unfortunately.

    Wellman let it roll on for a decade and got a retirement party and a street named after him. Currie doesn't have jack shit to worry about, nothing is going to get ugly for him no matter how bad we are, the last 11 years are proof of that.

    94 x 50 would fit on the Quad without even taking down any trees. And we wouldnít even need bleachers. Students can watch a minute or two of games as they walk to class.
