New season, new buns to toast.

Well we no longer have JPM to debate. But some folks from the past who have been on the list.

Stephanie White (Vandy)
Terri Williams Flourney (Auburn)
Sherri Coale (OK)

Question. With all the craziness of COVID, do coaches get a free pass? Is this a year where you try to make changes.

I was going to post this last week, but I wasn't sure if there was already a thread for it, so I didn't. But, thanks.

Sharon Versyp (Purdue)

Is it too early for Tina Thompson to be on the list? She has done a terrible job at Virginia.

Versyp yeah. But TT really has had to rebuild the program as Boyle was letting it stagnate so I can see fans ready for some signs of improvement but she really didn’t have a lot to work with.

Last year saw a little bit of cooling on Nikki Fargas but LSU looks really bad.

Versyp. Versyp. Dear God, Versyp.

Had last year not fallen apart, I think she would have been let go then. It has to happen this year.

I don’t know what happened at Virginia, but they have been playing with only seven available players.

I think COVID's pausing a lot of buyouts. (Unless you're Auburn football, I guess.) Handing out a sack of money to make someone go away is not a fiscally sound move in a time when staffs are taking pay cuts and schools are cutting sports. (Unless you're Auburn football, I guess.)

I also wonder what this means for the usual carousel. How much firing is legitimately going to happen if it means you have to spend money to hire someone new? And how many teams, and how many coaches, are going to have excuses revolving around player availability and game uncertainty and and and *gestures broadly at everything*? For example, I was unimpressed with Thompson at Virginia and her "we're going to run into you and either draw a block or get called for a charge" offense last year, but she can point at this year and go "I have no players, what exactly are you expecting me to produce?" Conversely, how many coaches can get themselves off the hot seat by promising pie in the sky next year with the extra year for their seniors?

It's going to be a weird couple of years on the coach watch.

UW Coach Jody Wynn at this point is always on my hot-seat list – so long as Oregon Assoc. HC and Seattle 'native' Mark Campbell isn't spoken for...

Virginia has 2 players with season ending leg injuries, another player that is out indefinitely with a leg injury, a player opt out for the season and another player that is listed as day to day. The only players that have been available for all 5 games have been 3 freshmen, a sophomore and a redshirt sophomore. They are currently trying to get athletes on other teams cleared so they can play on the basketball team. I’m not sure how many coaches in America would be able to do much better in the same situation.
