This is the only story that matters right now.

    Drip drip drip...
    Keep on digging. You know the local media won't.

    My conversations were 99% superficial talk that the media is known for.

    Zero conversations with athletes since Hud arrived, but it's not on Hud, this applies to all sports. My press pass was revoked.
    And we know why..

    But wait, you think asking a player if he likes playing for a coach plants a negative seed? Huh?

I hope the truth comes out and not someones agenda because if that did happen where TH got mad after missing one start, I'd say happy trails.
    Zeph, have you read any of this thread? Have you paid any attention to the lead up to this season?

    Anyone who believes Holmes quit over "playing time" is an outright fool.

    If I were a betting man, I'd go with what is usually the case...the truth is probably somewhere in between.

    How many times we as fans are gonna bury our collective heads in the stands?

    ACT scandal
    13 arrested
    Player retention
    Trump comments (video doesn't bother me)
    Rapid decrease in RCAF membership/donations

    The juice is no longer worth the squeeze. Hudspeth has done as much damage to the program as he has improved it. If you compare attendance from year two to last years attendance we are losing $500k a game. We can not afford to retain a $1M/yr coach when he isn't bringing in the revenue to pay for him.

    It's time to press the reset button...this is the first time I've ever gone on record saying this and I'm not one to have knee jerk reactions. Keeping Hud through his contract, at this point, will do us more longtime harm than buying him out/lawsuit.

    While all of what is brought up here is troubling, it will all go away when we beat TAMU again this Saturday.

    It will be a shootout, but they ain't Tulsa. They can't play up tempo like that, they have serious QB issues, and I actually think we have more bullets than they do.

    CN, with all due respect, there is a thread to discuss the Aggie game.

    I can assure you that this issue won't go away. I, along with plenty of others, will not let it. What is going on with our program is a lot more important than any single win. Trust me, I want to win. REALLY want to win, and EXPECT to win. But this issue, like many others that are not even being discussed here, are destroying our program long term. It's a fact, and we need to wake up.

    The best thing for all would be for HUD to have another 9-4 or 10-3 record and take a job elsewhere.

    We get a buyout, he gets a fresh start.

    It could happen.....

    Absolutely the best outcome. Still interested how you came up with your attrition numbers btw...

    The juice is no longer worth the squeeze. Hudspeth has done as much damage to the program as he has improved it. If you compare attendance from year two to last years attendance we are losing $500k a game. We can not afford to retain a $1M/yr coach when he isn't bringing in the revenue to pay for him.
    How did you arrive at the $500k per game figure? Total attendance in 2012 was 137190; total attendance in 2016 was 121,346. You're telling me that an a drop of about 2,500 fans per game means we lose $500k in revenue?

    I've tried to do the math myself, and your number is virtually impossible. Not saying you're wrong, maybe I'm doing something incorrectly?

    Season tickets sales, total tickets, concessions, etc.
    He may have the year wrong, but the figure is approx $500k per game. Yes.

    Math just doesn't add up with the numbers I have my hands on. Gameday revenue for all of 2012 season was just under $2,000,000. So by losing $500k per game, that means our gameday revenue now should be $0?

    I'm gunna try to do this quickly, busy today.
    Was just texting with Mel, and we kinda worked our way though those numbers.

    In 2014/2015, season ticket sales hit 13700+, but we'll use 13700. Average ticket price, low to high, came out to $213 a package. This number is not including corporate, family 5 pack, or suite sales.

    13700 x $213 = $2.91 Mil

    This year, we're right at 7100 ticket sales (which btw, is La Tech / Tualne bad)

    7100 x $213 = $1.5 Mil / 5 home games (we're extrapolating opening night over the course of the season. Atually could get worse.)

    The difference is approx $280k per game in losses.

    Also, considering modest number of walk up sales, tailgating losses, concessions (which we do not receive but maybe 20% of, I'm aware). Easily can add $130k per game.

    That difference is easily over $400k PER GAME. We still don't have all the revenue figures, but that $500k figure didn't just appear out of thin air.

    So, can we afford to buyout our HC? More like, can we afford to keep him?
