Great write up. Begging for Neal, Hasellwood, Stevenson, Bogle, Ingraham and Washington.
The boosters have apparently assured the University that they will be heavily involved in funding it. He would get a lump sum $15 million within 30 days of firing. The remaining $16-$17 million is paid out over 4 years. I read a bunch of stuff about this last night. It seems like Malzahn is literally 1 loss away from losing his jobMalzahn's buyout is $38M... saw someone post on twitter that the money would not be a problem. How the hell is $38M not a problem???
So if they get Neal that excuses all the others? They need alot on that list, I agree Neal is at the top......but they have to close on others to keep them away from who we chasing if not we will still be chasing no matter whos on the OL. Every kid on that list is important and we should close on most. Should.......key word but its unlikely do to evidence of the last 2 cycles........closing isnt there strong suit depending on who they are going up against......if bama and Ugay are involved those are the keys to weakening those teams. Close on home growns or find someone who can........I have given up on this staff but closing (since they wont get canned) is important. Im not expecting much though keeping my expectations low.If they ever needed to close on a kid badly it's for Neal. He could transform our entire line and offense next year.
