Josh Williams left Akron, word on the street is Robotham is leaving - and now Dambrot is leaving. Hope they enjoyed never winning a NCAA tournament game because those days are over.

Dunn-Martin too? Dang, I hope Sendy never leaves. Half our team will bolt. I notice Dambrot is offering Collins, Ballantyne...Collins was one I hoped we had a shot at.

I wonder if any of these guys follow him to Duq. Not really sure they're cut out for the A10 but coaches usually love their point guards.

Would John Groce be a fit at Akron?

That probably makes sense... because I can't stand John Groce and I can't stand Akron. Match made in hell.

Their top recruits from this year are bolting. If you're right about the salary, then that makes sense.

Article right now on Ohio.com (Beacon Journal website) states he'll make $1MM per season with a 7 year deal. He was making $600K I think.

RE: Dambrot Leaving??
I must admit that I never saw Dambrot leaving. Didn't Duquesne sniff him out once before? I doubt that the money was that much of a factor. At least not the biggest factor. Dambrot was already very wealthy and set for life. There has to be a bigger reason. I'm guessing that reason is simply that the MAC is not going to be getting more than one bid anytime soon.

If john Groce goes to Akron it would be a near certainty that they would have the best recruiting classes in the MAC but would underachieve.

RE: Dambrot Leaving??
Living in Akron I have friends with access to the programs.
Dambrot left for the following reasons
He wanted a new arena (akron has zero money after the football stadium debacle)
He is upset the MAC is a one bid league (its his own fault that he schedules cupcakes)
His son was playing soccer at Akron but lost playing time and transferred to Pitt. (he was a started but didnt even make the field some games at the end of the season)
He wanted to leave before a wave of transfer hit him (williams is the only confirmed at this time)
He does not have a replacements for Cheatham and Big Dog.

Rumors for transfers-Dunn Martin might follow him. Hughes and Dalton two freshmen should be leaving. Antino Jackson and Utomi might be gone. His Texas pipeline is leaving.

They might make a run at Groce but they will not pay what they were paying Keith. They need to trim athletics.
