Agree with this view. Again if we had an old school AD still in that seat I would be more concerned about JB doing something like those are expressing. I think Wildhack has a gameplan for JB sunsetting and I think he will hire a search firm to run it. For those of you who think the relatively new AD should be jamming the legendary head coach, who already has a retirement timeline great thinking. Ride the wave out, its almost over and then we can look forward to new blood.I don't agree -- I think he felt that way about Hopkins, which is why they engineered the coach in waiting arrangement. And I think he's inclined to also want to recommend Autry and / or GMac, but ultimately those guys don't have the same resume that Hop did, which is why I'd expect the AD to be inclined to shoot that down.
I stated above that JB is holding the program hostage -- he's doing it to live out one more fantasy, i.e., getting to coach his kid. The AD is waiting with the finish line in sight out of deference for JB's accomplishments, but he is equally as frustrated as every fan on this board with the status quo.
