I've been wondering what will this season be like. We saw UNC put together a season that was alot better than we predicted last year. We all know that as of next year the program will be damn near dead for at least nearly a decade. That brings up the question: What should Coach Golden do this year?
Personally, if I'm him, I'd hit the school up for a raise to stay. I wouldn't susupend anyone until the NCAA comes down and forces me. He's not allowed to ask his players if they received benefits from, so the NCAA has given him deniability. I would field my team, tell them this is the last hurrah and kick as much ass as I could this year. He will need all the momentum he can get going into the NCAA's dungeon. Playing the players can't bring any more punishment than is already gonna be dished out, except that the wins from this year will be vacated.
Golden needs to channel his inner Leonidis. Yes, guys, we're all gonna go down in the end, but let's take out as many others as we can on the way out. Hell, we may can even cost a couple of other teams a title in the process.
What would you do in his situation?
