It's a discussion board...the team sucks and it has sucked for three straight years. What do you want people to do....sit around and say "shucks, lost another"? The only topic of discussion possible right now centers on some derivation of "oh no..we suck again"

I totally understand that Flipper. I'm not happy with this season or the last few. We should be better. But I think part of the discussion needs to be what precedent will be set if a donor steps up and provides the money to buy out her contract. Now who is calling the shots, donors with cash or the AD? But I also want to be able to attract the best coaches possible and knowing who has final say on your job should be a deal maker or breaker. If the department wants to start a fund for buy outs that people can donate to without tying the funds to any specific coach, then fine. It can be kept at a certain level and be used if and when the AD deems is necessary. But short of that, you are staring down a very slippery slope.

Often times in these situations, the AD will ask certain donors to "contribute to the cause" which is completely different from a "donor" initially offering money to get rid of a coach. No different from trying to get facilities built, but a little more subtle!

That I don't have a problem with because the AD is in complete control of the process the whole time.

Goldsberry is my favorite former Falcon. As you stated, she always gave it her all. She was always responsible for guarding the opponents #1 player. Put the team before individual accolades.

I still remember her taking a shot, heading back to play defense and she's crossed midcourt. All of a sudden the ball is loose back in the front court and somehow there were three opposing players and Goldsberry on the floor fighting for the ball. She was back over the line so fast....

She earned last night. Glad to see the appreciation shown by the fans.
