Just a follow-up to my earlier post.  I just read an article that NKU is nearly doubling MBB ticket prices mainly in center court and courtside.  The article also mentioned that NKU has cancelled a GALA and golf tournament because the financial return just isn't there.

I asked coach Faulkner at the Curbstone Coaches event...all the info I get is from that event.   Including the big schools we are in contact for game this coming season.  Ohio St is close to reality.

Green Bay's coach Sundance Wicks is moving on to Wyoming after just 1 year. That's a big loss for that program after what he accomplished last year.

How much better would college athletics be if the NCAA had ruled decades ago that coaches and institutions must abide by contracts. For example, a coach that signed a five year contract with a school could not be dismissed for the duration (unless he was convicted of a crime.) Likewise, a coach would have to honor a contract for the duration before moving on to a higher paying job.

They need to do something about this NIL nonsense, and coaches not abiding by their contracts!  College basketball is not the pros where essentially teenager are free agents to who pays the most financially.  They have ruined college sports with their greed!

Dan Patrick interview with Green Bay's new head coach Doug Gottlieb https://x.com/dpshow/status/1790797762633551994

Very weird. Hard to imagine that's going to work.

I saw a site on line that said 56% of transfers are still uncommitted.   I think YSU still has two openings and it was this week last year that we received two commits that finished out the roster.  Not sure the timing is going to equate to last season however I saw back on the 8th a reporter said that YSU would have a few commits in 72 hours .  That predicted timeline has not happened but I would think there can be some movement by this Friday.

It almost seems like a joke. I can't imagine what Green Bay fans are thinking.  Got things turned around last year and your coach leaves and now this.  Seems like it could be circus.

Hope that it works out for us.

I'm wondering the same thing.   I saw that 54% of transfers still are uncommitted.
