Here is what's going on at Tennessee. At the start of the season, they looked to have two good senior post players (one a grad transfer), plus another senior leader in Meme Jackson and they had hopes for a third junior post player in Kamera Harris, who so far hadn't picked up. They had two stellar recruiting classes in the past two years.

Here is what reality looks like right now. Lou Brown, the grad transfer, tore her ACL before practice had even really got rolling. Harris *still* doesn't seem to have picked up on the program and seems destined to ride the pine. Meme Jackson was going great guns, then suddenly and inexplicably went into a shooting slump and now has a "lower leg injury", IOW a high ankle sprain. This leaves them with a team of nine...7 freshmen and sophomores, Harris (who has played in a total of 28 games), and Cheridene Green...to face Notre Dame. Now y'all can talk about how Notre Dame had 7 or 8 players last year, but I think they had a *few* more experienced players. Of course, I could be wrong. But ya know, sometimes it's not all the coach's fault. Sometimes it's just really bad luck. And I don't think Phil is going to fire her over that.

Ya know, that excuse might fly if they were just losing to Ky and ND and Miss St and Scar and so forth. But they still have six McD AAs and they're losing to the likes of Ark and Bama and UGA.

I don't care how young the are. The talent advantage is overwhelming and is being completely wasted.

Candice Jackson (College of Charleston)

This year, the team is 6-14 (2-7 in the CAA). Here were her previous years:

2017-18: 7-24 (2-16)
2016-17: 9-21 (6-12)
2015-16: 11-20 (5-13)
2014-15: 5-25 (3-15)

Back in April 2016, a former College of Charleston player sued the school, saying negligence by Coach Jackson and her staff led to Wallis collapsing during a training run over the city's iconic Ravenel Bridge.

As of January 2019:
A former College of Charleston basketball player who filed a lawsuit when she had her scholarship revoked after she quit the team because of health issues has settled with the school for $300,000.

In the two years before Jackson's arrival, Natasha Adair led COC to the following records:

2013-14: 19-15 (9-7)
2012-13: 16-16 (11-9)

Adair left for Georgetown and is now the head coach at Delaware.

So I posted about a bunch of schools one month ago. Here are some new ones and then some updates on some old ones.

Do people think Alabama is on hot seat? Year 6 and they are 3-9 in SEC and lost to Auburn yesterday by 39 points.

How about Cal? 5-9 in Pac 12 and this is with their best player in program history, Kristine Anigwe, who is a senior. Their backcourt is two seniors too. So if this is a non NCAA tournament team, outlook for post Anigwe years does not seem that optimistic.

In January I had UNC, but they have been playing well as of late and I think they should make the NCAA tournament? If not I think there are some questions there.

Penn State I had mentioned last month and well they have lost 6 in a row including by 30 to Minnesota yesterday. Like Cal, Penn State has a 2,000 point scorer about to graduate.

Oklahoma and Kansas are both 2-11 in Big XII play. Hard to imagine Sherri Coale on a hot seat though.

Wake Forest is 1-11 in ACC play. Duke is 3-9.

Hatchell's contract runs through 2019-20. I cannot see UNC buying her out with one year remaining.

Joanne P. McCallie has two years remaining on her contract; the extension announced in August 2017 keeps her under contract through the end of the 2020-21 season. Assuming the extension (which added two years to her then-current deal) was at the same rate of pay, her estimated annual compensation is approximately $900,000 or so. That means a buyout of the remaining two years would be $1.8 million.

In addition, Duke would have to pay a new women's basketball coach to take over for Coach P. Conservatively (given's Duke WBB status as a former national power), put that figure at $600,000 per year. This would mean that for 2019-20 and 2020-21, Duke would be paying $1.5 million per year for salaries of WBB head coaches and $3 million total for the two remaining years. This is just for the salaries of head coaches -- not assistant coaches, not staff, not basketball-related operations expenses, etc.

As a supplement to my previous post, here is a little backstory and data.

Duke - Equity in Athletics Team Information (2015)
Total Expenses (Men’s and Women’s Teams): $91,174,723
Total Revenues (Men’s and Women’s Teams): $91,688,202
Total Expenses (Women's Teams): $18,611,140
Total Revenues (Women's Teams): $15,897,197
Total Expenses (Women’s Basketball): $5,511,458
Total Revenues (Women’s Basketball): $3,194,313

Grand Total Revenue minus Grand Total Expenses (2015): +$513,479
Total Revenues for Women’s Sports minus Total Expenses for Women’s Sports (2015): -$2,713,943
Total Revenues for WBB minus Total Expenses for WBB (2015): -$2,317,145
(Source: Duke: Equity in Athletics Team Information (2015))


Duke - Equity in Athletics Team Information (2018)
Total Expenses (Men’s and Women’s Teams): $108,585,925
Total Revenues (Men’s and Women’s Teams): $108,585,925
Total Expenses (Women's Teams): $24,539,320
Total Revenues (Women's Teams): $19,732,911
Total Expenses (Women’s Basketball): $6,940,064
Total Revenues (Women’s Basketball): $3,810,612

Grand Total Revenue minus Grand Total Expenses (2018): $0
Total Revenues for Women’s Sports minus Total Expenses for Women’s Sports (2018): -$4,806,409
Total Revenues for WBB minus Total Expenses for WBB (2018): -$3,129,452
(Source: Duke - Equity in Athletics Team Information (2018))

***It should be noted that Duke added women's softball for 2018, meaning there were 11 women's sports for 2015 and 12 women's sports for 2018. For 2018, women's softball expenses were $1,344,166, with revenues of $807,718. If we just compare the 11 sports that were in existence in both 2015 and 2018, this is the result:

Duke - Equity in Athletics Team Information (2018)
Total Expenses (Men’s and Women’s Teams, not including softball): $107,241,759
Total Revenues (Men’s and Women’s Teams, not including softball): $107,778,207
Total Expenses (11 Women's Teams, not including softball): $23,195,154
Total Revenues (11 Women's Teams, not including softball): $18,925,193
Total Expenses (Women’s Basketball): $6,940,064
Total Revenues (Women’s Basketball): $3,810,612

Grand Total Revenue (not including softball) minus Grand Total Expenses (not including softball)(2018): +$536,648
Total Revenues for 11 Women’s Sports (not including softball) minus Total Expenses for 11 Women’s Sports (not including softball) (2018): -$4,269,961
Total Revenues for WBB minus Total Expenses for WBB (2018): -$3,129,452
(Source: Duke - Equity in Athletics Team Information (2018))


In other words...

--- For 2015, women's basketball was an incredibly large percentage of expenses for all 11 women's sports at Duke (29.61 percent), did not bring in a corresponding percentage of revenue (20.09 percent), and represented the overwhelming majority of the deficit when examining total revenues minus total expenses (85.38 percent).

--- For 2018, women's basketball represents an incredibly large percentage of expenses for women's sports at Duke (over 28 percent, for all 12 women's sports; nearly 30 percent without softball), does not bring in a corresponding percentage of revenue (19.3 percent, for all 12 women's sports; 20.13 percent without softball), and still represents the majority of the deficit when examining total revenues minus total expenses (65.11 percent, for all 12 women's sports; 73.29 percent without including softball).


Given all of the expenses for athletics at Duke, the lack of a large net margin/income (in terms of Grand Total Revenue minus Grand Total Expenses), the percentage of expenses for women's sports that is spent for women's basketball, and the overwhelming percentage of the deficit of women's sports attributable to women's basketball, I cannot see Duke Athletics spending an additional $600,000 per year for each of the next two years for a new WBB head coach while still paying approximately $900,000 or so for each of the next two years to Coach P, per her contract.

PSU finished 1st in the B1G in 2014 and made it to the Sweet 16.
2015: B1G tied for 13th, no post-season
2016: B1G 11th, no post-season
2017: B1G tied for 6th, lost in 3rd round of WNIT
2018: B1G 11th, lost in 1st round of WNIT
2019: currently tied for 12th with 4 games left - vs Purdue, at Illinois, at Michigan State and vs Nebraska. Overall record wouldn't support a post-season bid.

Unless I missed a contract extension announcement, Coquese is in the final season of the extension she received at the end of the 2015 season.

Mzonefan, 2 or 3 years ago I expressed the view that Barnes Arico was falling far short of the hype surrounding her hire and queried how long Mich would put up with that. You were strongly defensive saying she needed more time to build the program.

It's now six years, she isn't recruiting all americans (which is generally expected for Mich athletic teams across the board), she's not a B10 contender, and in the weakest bubble season in memory, Mich is very tenuously on the bubble and has not been a consistent NCAA team.

Is her performance good enough to keep her job when her contract expires, or will Mich try again to make a splash and move up the ranks? What's the take on her among Mich fans?

Given the lack of interest by most ADs, at most schools her performance would probably be good enough to hang around for decades. But I thought Michigan wanted to step it up and win B10 titles at least. Is she safe or is her seat getting warm?
