    Yes I think Roy's coaching of him has been putrid and held him back this year. But I would throw out today as a data point.
    To be even more fair, he left the court in the first half for a stomach issue and never returned.

    Couldn't stomach the way Roy has been torpedoing his draft chances.

    Or he couldn't stomach the restaurant Sean May chose for their pre-game meal.

    Wake Forrest's AD Ron Wellman should be fired... not for hiring Danny Manning, but for signing him to a 6 year extension at the start of the 2017 season. with the extension tacked on to his original deal. Manning is under contract until 2025. The monster extension was signed at Danny had been at Wake for 3 years. During those 3 seasons his team finished 12th, 13th, and 10th in the ACC. They made the NCAA once, making the First Four but losing before actually playing in the main field.

    I am sure Manning is a nice guy, but he is clearly way over his head at Wake. His original contract would be coming due about now and it would be an ideal time to let him go and try someone new. Instead, tanks to Wellman's ridiculous extension, Wake is likely stuck with Manning for a couple more years. Unfathomably stupid and Ron Wellman should pay the price.

    I don't know what you are doing right now, but if you aren't listening to the DBR Podcast, you're doing it wrong.

    If Wellman had a shred of decency, he'd resign and refuse any golden parachute. His stupidity is a devastating blow to a low revenue athletic department.

    Completely agree with this Jason. Wellman has been AD for 26 years at Wake. He has made some good hires, especially in football, but has enraged the fan base with his handling of basketball. Especially when he hired his old friend, Jeff Bzdelik (they were coaches together at Northwestern decades ago) in 2010, after firing Dino Gaudio.

    Wellman is past 70. I think most alums just hope he will retire at this point. Sooner rather than later.

    Wellman is pretty clearly a football guy at a basketball school. He hired Caldwell (semi-worked in NFL), Grobe, and Clawson.

    I was surprised that he's been there since 1992. Since he is 70/71 right now, he's not going to be fired or exercise a golden parachute.

    Wellman’s coaching career was mostly in baseball. He was the head baseball coach at Northwestern in the 80s when Jeff Bzdelik was an assistant basketball coach there, which is when their friendship began.
