Title: Heres the Deal
Post by: Wi11ieBeamin on April 05, 2019, 02:42:21 pm
Like PRJ alluded to, Beard has been and still is #1 with Mussleman waiting in the wings. No one and I repeat NO ONE has been offered the Arkansas job, Sampson and Marshall included. HY set out to get Beard from the beginning and did not expect TT to make it this far so things have changed a little including the price tag. We are willing to spend the money though to get him. $5million to $6million is gonna be thrown around to get our guy. We are not messing around this time. The PTB knows that this is our chance and they are gonna swing for the fences. HY has done everything the right way and all the rumors like Alford, Mcafferey are just him doing due diligence in the case something goes wrong. However, Musselman is the clear cut #2 and is just waiting for the phone call in case Beard says no. NO matter what we have ourselves a pretty good ball coach. Go Michigan St.!

Well if we're NOT going to pay more than what we pay the football coach (around $3.5 million), there's no reason to wait for Beard.  We won't get him for anywhere near that.

It's gotta be Musselman or another mid-major.

Sampson was offered the job and if anyone thinks otherwise it's because they dont want it to look like he backed out.

If EM is the floor to this whole thing, then I'm good with swinging for the fences on Beard.  Musselman is a good coach who in the right situation could be very good.  Beard looks like the guy who could come in and have you on a 20-25 year run a la Dean Smith, K, Boeheim, etc.  That's the dream scenario.  We need that kind of impact because we have been in a near 20 year rut and only something sizeable will change that.

Itís all about semantics.  They can come on here and say coach x,y,and z were never ďofferedĒ the job.  Now they could have gone through discussions and been courted but when they werenít interested the narrative becomes they were not offered.

I find it laughable that certain posters want to continue to pound the table with it has always only been Beard and Muss. 

KS - not enough interest in whatever we pitched. Laymen translation: turned down.
GM - same
Beard - TBD.
Muss - ? Probably interested but waiting on follow up call.

So, if that's the case, then Marshall was always further down the list behind Musselman? That's a little disappointing... I just don't think there is any chance of landing Beard, and I would rather go after GM before EM.

GM wasn't available when EM was.  It's also entirely possible we had no plan to approach GM given his history with coaching searches, but he reached out to express interest, so we talked.  It's all rumors and innuendo anyway.

Fertitta was quoted after the Arkansas job came up saying they wouldn't let Sampson leave for money, then he got a raise and they made his son coach in waiting. Out of all the noise we have heard, it seems very likely that HY went after Sampson first, and Sampson used it as leverage. Did he have an official offer waiting to be signed in hand? Maybe not, but no doubt he had discussions and used it as leverage to renegotiate with Houston.

If the PTB and HY think they can get Beard, I question their ability to lead the university. Delusion and entitlement are clouding their decisions. History and common sense tell me that we shouldn't wait on Beard. In my opinion, we seem a little desperate if waiting on Beard is still an option.

The problem with that is HY had been courting Sampson for months. There are even those on the former staff that were aware of it. Sampson was offered the job and it was expected to be a done deal. Of course many will say he was never offered so if and when we hire a new coach they were our first choice all a long.

Would you STFU and let the guy fix the fat boyís Frank ups? We get it, you hate him, let the guy clean up the mess from the last three jack legs first though you pedantic ass.

+1 for using the word pedantic. Iím sure you had him googling it.

Thereís no doubt about that... And I completely understand that people are pissed about last year but they are trying to change the culture, roster, etc and feel he at least deserves the support to get the job done. All of the points have been made ad naseum, anyone with two brain cells to rub together understands the litany of well established problems this coaching staff is trying to solve. Even Mods have asked this clown to dial it back to no avail... Itís moronic to continue to incessantly kevetch when people a hell of a lot smarter than him are actively seeking solutions.

HY isnít hiring Beard. He is maybe messaging the offer.  If Beard does or doesnít come, that isnít on HY.  Itís on those setting the terms.

Plan and simple we wonít pay what it takes to get Marshall or Beard.

So we will be getting Musselman.... if we are luck. If we arenít lucky Alford

if this corner we've painted ourselves into nets us Beard for $7 million, it'll still be worth it.
No way Arkansas pays 7 mil for a basketball coach.  Those are message board only numbers.

Sampson was offered the job and if anyone thinks otherwise it's because they dont want it to look like he backed out.
Exactly.

Under threats of landing Alford, I certainly hope this is accurate. At this point, Musselman as a 2 gives me a little comfort.

Unless we change our mind on Musselmanís background check, I wouldnít look for it.

Yep, I agree the I do not think for one second we are getting Beard. People are just hyping it up more and more and setting themselves up for a big letdown.

Alfordís body of work suggests he is not a championship coach and while we are at a lowly point of striving to get back to a Sweet 16, I really want us relevant on a national level
