    Re: OFFICIAL POSTGAME THREAD - Bama v. The Hogs...

    It's time to move on from Avery. I was excited when we hired him, but the results speak for themselves. It's the same song and dance every year. Without Sexton bailing us out last year, we would have zero tournament appearances in four years.

    It's also time to stop using the next recruiting class as justification to keep him. Everybody was excited about that 2017 class that had Sexton, Petty, Herb, Galin, & Reese. Those guys (obviously excluding Sexton) are the core of our team now, and look where we are. We should be past "the next recruiting class is the one that will get us there" in year 4.

    EDIT: Also, did I mention that Avery makes as much as Tony Bennett and more than Jay Wright?

    Yes, thank you for the statement about salary. We overpaid to get AJ, and where did that get us? Some seem to think that throwing money at the problem will help. We're not going to get a proven big dog who is already at a blue-blood program. We need a solid basketball guy with some energy. That's it. A million and a half or two should be able to get us a very, very capable coach.

    College basketball has been so dirty for so long that I don't know we could get anyone who hasn't been tainted by the filth. I don't know that it matters much at this point because everyone is dirty. Everyone has known about this mess, including everyone in the college game and the NCAA, for years. It's not a secret. It never was. And the powers that be turned a blind eye and let it happen and now it's completely out of control.

    Getting the NBA to fix there issues will help, but CBB has to stop making excuses and clean up the mess. Either put a stop to it all or at least bring it above board and make it transparent instead of pretending your poo doesn't stink. It does. Bad. The daylight and some antiseptic will help.

    I'm fine with giving him next year but that's it. I would not be mad if he found another job this offseason though.

    As for coaches pay you can't always go by what is posted. According to the 2018 payscale by USA Today Bennett does make more as he has a lot of stuff added into his contract in terms of pay, etc. It even has Avery well above Roy Williams at North Carolina which is a joke, I promise you Roy makes just as much or almost as much as his ratfaced rival at Dookie who leads at almost 9 million. Williams has contracts with Nike and others as well as he pockets the money from his camps and other speaking engagements.

I didn't think it would be possible for us to fall this far this year, but it is clear coach Johnson has lost the team. It is time for a complete reboot. Unfortunately economics will come into play unless coach finds another job. If he doesn't, don't expect a move this year.
    That is certainly the perception...but I really think they only have one tangible advantage to us right now: The Auburn Arena. Obvioiusly, that's a HUGE advantage, but if we are just comparing talent and even results (wins and losses) it's not like they are suddenly a top team in the nation and are even basically mediocre even this year.

    Other than the arena, the biggest other factor is they do seem to be trending up and us down and if that's what you meant then I agree. Their fans certainly feel better than us as well.

    I'm shocked Wright hasn't gotten a raise and even more appalled that that much money can't get us to at least one S16 in 4 years wit AJ

If the answer is yes then chances are that program will be successful. Unfortunately I don't think that's the case with this current basketball program and great talent alone does ensure winning.
    One of the best posts on the thread! I agree that at this point (way beyond 2 years) we should be seeing major progress but instead it's the opposite: regression.

    It may seem that way, but no. The original point was about finding a new coach that is "clean". I don't know if it's possible because CBB is so dirty and has been for so long. It's a real problem.

    He might not have been at the championship game (know the assistants were there), but he was at the semi-final game.
