    I feel like you are trying to take a shot at NKU fans on this board, but I have zero clue what point you are trying to make.

    There’s absolutely zero shot, that feels like a huge reach. It’s just a comment that the NKU chatter has decreased significantly on this board in the last couple of years.

    You couldn't be more wrong. The negative chatter has disappeared. If anything, the in season discussion of the team is higher than it has ever been.

    Decreased? That's an interesting take. Okay.

    Jeff Goodman tweeted that Frank Martin has emerged as a key contender for the job. I am a fan of him, Frank Martin that is.

    If Matta is healthy and wants the job, I don't see how UC could pass on him.

    And every news source I've found with any information about Frank Martin is using that one tweet and nothing has been provided to back it up. However, speculation from several sources say Martin is unhappy in Columbia.

    Martin could be a homerun.

    Martin has won 20 games 2 times in his 7 years at South Carolina. He has been in the NCAA tournament once at South Carolina. That looks like a big step down from Mick.

    Looks like Frank Martin has a 12-14 million dollar buyout. Don't see that happening.

    There was a link to a Charleston, SC newspaper article dated 4/21/17 (so just after his final four run) that reported him getting a raise to $3.3MM total package and a buyout of $4MM. This sounds reasonable.

    The buyout everyone reporting of $12.6MM appears to come from a USA date base. That same date base has some numbers that seem a little suspect unless you believe that the Steve Pikiell has a $12.7MM buyout. That same date base has Cal with a $25MM buyout. When UCLA was doing their coaching search it was reported they wouldn't pay Jamie Dixon's $8MM buyout at TCU (USA Today date base doesn't have a buyout listed) and a $25MM buyout of Cal was never mentioned. KSR (I realize not the most reliable source for any info) has repeated over and over that Cal doesn't have a buyout any longer. All of which I only point out to say that I am a bit skeptical of the amounts listed in the data base that everyone is citing.

    Note: Two "MM"s above represents millions, which is the standard in my world.

    Not to beat a dead horse but the Courier Journal reported in a March 28, 2018 article that Chris Mack’s buyout is $6MM (decreasing by $500,000 each year through the 2023-2024 season) and the data base lists his buyout at $12MM.

    Soooooooo.... if UC wants Frank Martin, they can probably afford him and they can keep their dirty hands off my John Brannen.
