A man's got to know his limitations.

It hasn't happened yet.
Can we wait and see if it happens, this like a 5star kid that is going to come, but at the last minute he goes to KU.

The key word was "Perhaps".

At St. John's nothing is over until we decide it is! Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? Hell no!

Or a bit of pressure, external or internal, to produce soon.

If additions to the staff do occur, perhaps he was asked to stand pat to help pay off Slice without incurring additional costs.

Does anyone know why we are still paying Slice?.. Anyone?

Just to be fair, and I do love your posts, not sure if this Matt's limitations or just the staff as a whole.

Because he had a better lawyer than SJU.:)

I'm going to take a while stab at this without knowing. Slice originally had a 5 or 6 year deal. When something like that gets terminated, usually the separation is not spelled out in great detail. Both sides then begin to negotiate that. Slice's attorneys likely begin at full value, immediate lump sum payment at 100% value, and a release to allow him to seek employment elsewhere. SJU begins with termination with cause and no payout. The school would then want any payout to be stretched over years, and likely want a discount on the full value. Going to guess that the payout, whether discounted or not, has been stretched over multiple years.

Just based on my experience with this stuff.

Originally I was against the Rice hire given the negative publicity we would get, but honestly I think this program is in such desperation at a critical point that we have to do it if he is willing to come. If we don't, UConn will pair him with Hurley and we can kiss 90% of the top NYC area recruits goodbye. Hurley was the right hire at the time. We took a hail mary and it appears to have fallen in the end zone incomplete. I'd hate to see us lose another potential game changing coach to a rival. I just don't know if Matt A is worn out recruiting or if recruits are staying away because of our ugly record every year so far. Maybe both. Whatever the reason for all the failure is, we know it's not working and we need to do something to at least try and change course. We are so desperate for recruits that we need to hire Rice even if it's just to land a 5 star player or two. Ponds is possibly gone next year and definitely the following year. We need to go all out to try and win with him as the leader. If not, we just wasted 3 years of one of the best players we've ever had. I know it's probably way easier said than done, but I have a hard time believing we can't do anything.
