    As for Mike White ... I'll follow with casual interest. If he succeeds, great. If he doesn't, no sweat off my back.
    I don't see any AAC school giving him the top job. I also cannot imagine he could get a better job in CUSA. I suppose an Asst AD job at a P5 might be possible. Assuming the money is better than here at Tech perhaps that might provide his exit. Personally, I do not have confidence he can lead us to the top of CUSA or get us in the AAC. As I get older I have less patience in seeing Tech reach what I perceive as our full potential.

    Well rules may have been broken. I see it almost like when an employee wants to leave, sometimes you can take it personally, but the bottom line is if they feel like they would be happier going it is usually best to let them go. Also, these are kids we are talking about. I usually feel the players are committing more to the coaching staff than to the school. Lastly, I feel we have gained more recently than we have lost with transfers. I can appreciate and respect your point of view though.

    He's 0 for 10 when it counts the most. It always ends in heartbreak for Mike White's teams.
    That's a bunch of crap. Winning a first-round, second-round and Sweet 16 game are all bigger wins than any NIT victory. The man led his team to being one of the final eight standing in the entire country. That's a huge, huge accomplishment. Knocking somebody for losing in the Elite 8, like many have done to Bill Self and you're doing to Mike White, is simply asinine. It's incredibly difficult to make it to the Elite 8, and even that much harder to win that game.

    Does Mike White winning a SS game help Tech? No? Then who cares?

    We probably are pretty much in agreement here. I'm generally of the opinion that kids should be able to go to school and transfer wherever they want. I don't like putting transfer restrictions on student-athletes, and I think that they should be let out of LOIs if they request it. However, when malfeasance is the reason an SA wants out, that's when I support the release with restrictions as in Stapleton's case.

    Pretty serious accusation to make when you have ZERO proof.

    Those are the facts, like them or not. White was the favorite in every game in this tourney. He was gifted a clear path to the Final Four with other teams knocking out the 1, 2, and 3 seeds for him. He got to play the 1st and 2nd round games as home games just an hour and a half down the road, and then he got to play 7 and 8 seeds in the S16 and E8. It couldn't have gotten any easier for him. The fact is that White has lost the game that would've sent him to the Final Four each of the last four seasons. He lost every conference tourney, including 3 years as the 1 seed at Tech. Sorry he left you heartbroken again. I said he is a great coach (maybe you missed that). He just loses the biggest games every year.

    Thanks, Dusty.

    And actually there was proof that Stapleton and his family lied to Tommy in the emails that were FOIAed by TNS.

    Heck; there I thought you were accusing mw of malfeasance, and you were really accusing "Stapleton and his family" of malfeasance.

    No, I said Stapleton and his family lied, which was shown in the FOIAed emails.
