    Not worried one bit. We never even met with him. Our AD doesn’t have anything leak either.

    If anyone is talking about the big 10 in that way they need to stop. It has decent depth in some years, but the teams at the top can't compete. Can't go 20 years without a title and be taken seriously in that conversation.

    It’s probably just that most Cbb coverage are grads of those schools so they tend to focus energy there.

    The Big 12 (and Big 10) do well by this metric because there aren’t bad teams in those conferences, whereas in the ACC there have tended to be one or two teams that are low major-level absolute butt. The middle of the conferences tend to be about the same; I think the median Big 12 team is better than the median ACC team this year but that’s often close. The ACC - this year and most - tends to have the most championship-caliber teams, and that shows in Final Fours and Nationals Championships over the last decade.

    Wofford alum and season ticket holder here. In 2008-2009 Mike had a handful of recruits turn out to be better than expected that elevated the program and led to our first NCAA appearance in 2010. From that point on, with more name recognition, he was able to recruit a better class of player and the results have been strong. 5 appearances in the last 10 years from a very strong 1 bid conference

    Two years ago a new arena opened up that is undoubtedly a top 5 mid major facility and is just off the charts. Recruiting picked up further and though this year was our best ever team, we return a team next year that will have great depth and compete in a historically loaded SoCon. It’s really sad he’s leaving because we are on the cusp of making a leap as a program and he’s the main driver of that.

    He’s going to coach a great offense and they will play strong team defense. They will play with an identity. As a fan of his personally, I struggle with will he be able to recruit ACC caliber players and will he be given enough time to get the full machine working. He has a job for life at Wofford and his wife is the PWC partner in Spartanburg so while millions of dollars are millions of dollars, I do not think money is even in the top 3 of factors for him. Bigger factors are he’s from Virginia and our incompetent AD has somehow found himself butting heads with the best football coach and basketball coach in school history in the last 3 years resulting in both leaving.

    I wish him the best and will cheer for his teams more or less as my own. I love the guy and I think he’s got a better chance of success than most give him credit for.

    F- hire. Can't recruit at all, will fail miserably in such a difficult conference without star talent.
