  1. From my understanding you aren't tied down until you enroll in the school. We've seen some commitments back out and re-open their recruitment, meaning they got a last minute offer and hadn't enrolled yet.
  2. I'm surprised the MWC is able to keep its players better than some power leagues. NIL money or is the west just not heavily recruited? It's clear our league has a lot of standout talent, but not enough $$$ to keep them at home.
  3. He doesn't take over until June, he can't start flipping tables before he's even officially in. The main message I see is he wants to sell this conference and get revenue up, that's the only way to compete, and he's willing to explore any avenue to do that. That's a pretty astute and positive thing IMO. https://frontofficesports.com/tim-pernetti-aac-contraversy-private-equity/
  4. I see teams like Memphis and others are already making portal moves, I'd wager we are a week or so away from stuff trickling down to us.
  5. No way of knowing until we see who Hodge can get to transfer in.
  6. Ah thanks. I thought it was some old transfer since he weirdly entered the portal since January. Seems like a strange thing to do.
  7. Memphis has 4 Pierre Young Cherenfant A. Hardaway 3-4 players seems normal, I don't see a single team up at 7 or more outside of ECU which I mentioned.
  8. ECU is the other team sticks out in our conference. 7 in the portal, and it seems like they are cleaning house because that's a lot to lose for a team that didn't do well. We are losing 7 plus 1 commit, and more importantly 5 of those were our heaviest minute players. Looking around the conference: Charlotte-3 ECU-7 FAU-6 lost coach Memphis-4 Rice-6 fired coach Temple-2 Tulane-4 Tulsa-3 UAB-2 USF-4 UTSA-3 WSU-4 We and ECU are definitely the outliers, and what I've read from them it sounds like they asked their players to leave so they could start fresh.
  9. Players leaving due to coach leaving makes sense to me. You like that coach and he recruited you there, maybe you don't want to play in an unknown system. I understand those reasons. We are not in that situation, our coach is still here.
  10. True. I guess we'll see if the gif is accurate or if I should have posted someone writhing on the ground instead.
  11. How much is it though? And are we at least competing with our conference peers? Those are the questions I'd like answers to. I find the turnover pretty concerning. The only other program I can think of that's going through the same thing we are that didn't lose their coach is ECU. They've lost 8 players.
  12. We did choose RV to run it so.... Joking aside I know someone on this site knows some insider info. I'd like them to at least say if those numbers are close or way off. If you have the real numbers let's see them?
  13. FIFY I feel like a broken record. The NCAA has tried to enforce rules and has lost anti-trust suit after anti-trust suit in the courts.
  14. Not if this is accurate: https://nil-ncaa.com/aac/ Bottom of the American by a good margin.
  15. Extensive work at ESPN/ABC and CBs, got Rutgers into the B1G, and most importantly: The AAC needs someone to sell it and create sponsorships to continue to raise its profile. This guy looks like he knows how to get that done. For those worried about the Rutgers scandal: Seems like he should have fired the basketball coach instead of suspending him. He wasn't involved in the incident.
  16. Yeah the flip flopping is pretty embarrassing. It's a coping mechanism.
  17. Following. I hope we can capitalize on the portal since losing so many starters should open up a lot of opportunities for play time.
  18. Yup, sometimes being the only ticket in town has it's upsides.
  19. They have a pretty hardcore and loyal fanbase.
  20. Neither the amounts raised or the amounts paid to players are required to be reported. Correct, they are not employees.
