Re: '17 NY PF - Obadiah Toppin (Offer)

I wonder if its not so much that he's "better", maybe its a different skill set that he brings to the table? If they are projecting that he's better at this point, they may have missed big on last years big men recruits.

He looks good in the clip, but a 1 year grad transfer would leave 5 ships to fill next year. That's a large percentage of the roster to turnover in one year...if you are not KY and that's your model.

Re: Possible Wichita State move to the AAC

Duquesne actually left the A10, I believe in the early 90's for 1-2 seasons and then we let them back in! I thought that was a bad move then and nothing has changed.

All we can hope for is he is more similar to his dad, and Mark Few, who looks like he makes about $1.3m and has not been poached in 17+ extremely successful seasons.

I assume TBR means pony up. Wichita State pays their coach $3.3m! I know that is extreme but it looks like the going rate is $2m+ now for the top coaches. I believe the $1m we are paying Hurley still puts him in roughly the top 75 highest paid coaches. In fact according to this $1m would have put yo...

This does pertain to the topic at hand, as that we can hopefully look forward to snubs like that (real and imagined) ending.

But all the things mentioned here will only happen with sustained success...if we don't go back for another 5+ years momentum will be lost.
