    Best off-season thread in some time! Can someone please explain why this appears to be such a high-magnitude issue? Other than the occasional Larry Shyatt references or "we've got a bunch of guard coaches" concern, I don't recall much attention given the assistant coaches. Could it just be that this individual found a better fit in Lincoln?

    Lol! It was quite a thread!

    I think this is receiving attention bc Gates was gone almost as soon as he arrived. The reasons as to why have been the subject of some wild speculation. In addition, news broke of his imminent departure over a week ago, but anything official was very slow to develop.

    Thanks Brent. That's about what I gathered from my limited knowledge on the subject. Was interesting to read how intent some were about it.

    Here’s what happened. White read this message board and came to his senses after reading that I said he needed a big man recruiter and developer. Ha ha, sounds as legit as some of the other scenarios on here so that’s my story and I’m sticking with it.

    Yeah, that's just a way of saying 'we don't really want to tell you what happened.' Whatever it was, it must have been bad enough to pull the trigger, because they had to know both sides would look bad here.
