He will lose 4 players to the NBA next year again and he will not make the NCAA tourney. Ses that the AD finds lots of excuses to not fire his biggest mistake.
    He doesn't have the #1 class. Duke has signed the top three players in the entire 2018 class. So it's not even close as to who has the #1 class this year.

    That said, he does have a really good class coming in, but that's the case every year and he hasn't been able meet the lofty expectations that UCLA has so far in five years. Next year things may get pretty serious if it's status quo.

    Remember, that whole China thing messed up their roster, so not like they had a stacked deck. Although, they had plenty of talent to do better than they did.

    for UNM that might seem like a lot, but not a school getting 42.5+ mm per year in licensing/rights fees and total athletic revenue of 96.9mm and that was a year or two ago. Probably over 100mm by now. You think 6.2mm would keep him there if they wanted to part ways? Not likely.

    He has a great incoming class, including Shaq's son Shareef, so I just don't see it happening. They have 5 top 75 players coming in next year. They will be loaded.

    Now, if next year they don't make a deep run in March, then yeah, the ground under his feet will be very shaky.
