Thinks North Carolina AD Cunningham will decide to make a change, expects longtime Kansas State HC Snyder to step down, thinks an experienced HC is needed at Maryland, gets feedback that former Terps HC Durkin could land as a DC at a low profile P5 & not cause many media waves, thinks UMass AD Bamford will make a change, more.

#3: Deadspin's McKenna with a super long look at the feud between former George Washington AD Nero & former Colonials MBB HC Lonergan that eventually led both out of Foggy Bottom. The piece includes pictures & video of Nero allegedly fraternizing with recently graduated GW student-athletes, reports of Nero giving some student-athletes nominal amounts of cash out of his own pocket, consistently being intoxicated on a MBB trip to Italy & much more. Further, Lonergan looks to have gone to former university Prez Knapp to complain about Nero's behavior & involvement as the piece also recounts details around Lonergan's departure, which happened before Nero stepped aside. Around a month ago Nero was communicating with Deadspin about a statement, which he indicated would need to be coordinated with the university, but no such statement ever came. There's lots of anonymous comments both defending & blaming both former leaders. (link)
