  • Staff turnover

    Other administrators across the country think pretty highly of Miami; at least compared to our peers in the MAC.  Miami only ranked behind Buffalo in this recent survey.  Not to say that we don't lose staff to P5 jobs from time to time.

    I found it very interesting and re-assuring. I am surprised that football’s potential was worse than basketball. My view is that football has all it needs to be a top 3 program in the league with better facilities, better recruiting opps (no football for X or UD) and rural setting may be less of an issue while basketball has more competition and a worse facility
  • Phil Steele Preview

    Per FBS future schedule website. Ohio State was added in 2017 and Iowa was 2013 - the UC series was recently announced (maybe last year) as was the FCS
  • Hockey Coaching Search Thread

    It is unique to me that in almost all soorts the BG and Miami job would be viewed similarly but in hockey we can steal their coach? I guess it helps that he is an alum too

    More than doubling his salary helps a bit, too.
    Thats the part that is hard to believe.
  • Coaching Carousel 2019

    What job does Oats take?

    None.  Given he hasn't actively floated his name out there, I think schools watch him next year to see what he does after losing 80% of his scoring from the senior class and make sure he's not another Keno Davis at Drake situation.
    I am going to disagree a bit on this. Keno Davis coached one year at Drake. This is Nate Oats 4th year at Buffalo and he has been to the tournament 3 times. Secondly, I read Oats already turned down the UNLV job and he got a serious raise at UB. Finally, I think Keno Davis is a pretty good coach. I think CMU is a hard basketball job and CMU has competed well under him
  • Nike Sibande Transferring (Likely)

    I think it was mostly one poster who was non-stop critical of Nike. Most others had mixed reviews and appreciated the talent
