    You're right, he is terrible. He should have either cleaned house and taken the financial hit at the beginning or ride Dana until the end of 2017 and cut ties while bringing in his guy. No financial hit. Recruiting may have taken a hit in 2017 but not as much as it has now. Depending on that Elite coach you seem to think No Balls can bring in here, maybe there would be no hit.

    You keep mentioning a pro WVU contract. I'm assuming you are talking about the buy out clause which is not uncommon. Charlie Strong is getting paid to sit on his ass for 2 years, but I'm sure the hit isn't as bad since he has taken, or getting ready to take, another HC gig.

    Agree but how is he going to do that with his year to year contract mandate? Or, has the contract landscape already changed back to a multi-year contracts?

    Title 9 was STARTED in the early 1970s, just as was the EPA, both kept the target moving, with a patchwork of enforcement. Title 9 enforcement was ramped up in the early 2000s with lawsuits threatened .....

    The uptick in recruiting after the 2011 season was due to a ten win season, BB, not because of a contract extension, and recruiting stepped back since due to poor performance on the field, winning brings in kids, not fine print on a contract........kids aren't stupid, with the short sight on both sides, the kids know it is a crap shoot whether the coach that recruited the will still be there when they graduate.
