Watts is a move or two away from check mating this thing. If he gets the conference worked out, it's all over for football.

The release read similar to things said when coach Clark was brought on board. Bama better not spend more on a coach than Hasse because that would be fiscally irresponsible based on how they treat UAB.

Still this is a shocking amount to offer him IMO. We only offered Anderson in the neighborhood of 600-650 when he left for Mizzou, correct?

And all this "committed spending" for upgrades, travel, etc., it seems like a thinly veiled disguise to placate angry fans. While I'm happy about all this, it also makes me nervous that they are digging in and football will not come back no matter what...

No doubt this is excellent news for the basketball program. This is the level of commitment that it'll take to have a program like Wichita St. If the contract is for $1M, I would think we're overpaying for Haase. I don't doubt he could command that salary in the future (and I'm happy to see we're willing to pay a salary at that level), but I think we're overdoing it at this point.

I agree though that committing to spending this level of money means the administration has no intention of bringing back football. Now even if football is shown to be viable they can say "Yeah that's great, but we've already committed all of resources to basketball. We can't re-start football without breaking the promises we made to the basketball program."

Does anyone know where one million ranks in CUSA. In today's market, if Haase becomes a hot target of P5 schools, $1 million is still low that a lot of P5 schools will top.

But Watts is spending money right now like a cheating husband trying to convince his wife he still loves her before she kicks him out of the house.

Hopefully when we kick Watts out of the house, we will get to keep the nice shiny diamond (Haase) he bought us (his scorned wife).

This is very much in response to the bombshell documents. They think they can throw money at UAB basketball and we'll shut up about Watts, the BOT, and Football. I'm VERY glad Haase got the raise, extension, etc... but we're not shutting up!

Excerpt:

Quote:University of Alabama at Birmingham President Ray L. Watts, M.D., announced today that Men’s Basketball Coach Jerod Haase has agreed to a new, six-year agreement, reflecting the university’s commitment to the program’s continued success as a strategic priority for Athletics.

PR machine working OT.

Don't think so.

There is legislation at work that is outside Watts control and the BOT control.

I'm happy for Coach Haase. Doing this makes our basketball a bit more secure, as well.

That said, this does absolutely nothing to displace my determination to see Watts run out of office or to get football back. If they think it's that easy, they're idiots. Well, they're idiots anyhow, but this won't split the fan base.

The generous (for UAB) contract causes me to wonder if the attempt to tie BBHC Haase for a term of years may be to assure he will stay no matter what level of BB program UAB winds up with after 2015. Are they anticipating an angry coach who might feel betrayed by current administration decisions in a year or two?

hopefully they anticipate a coach who's already gotten a call or two this season as 'the guy who beat fred hoiberg' and decided to lock him down.
