Does he know where the bodies are buried? How else can you make an argument that he shouldnt be fired? He's not going to want to hire a home run. He'll instead settle for someone he knows, someone who doesn't require top dollar or top control. So, I guess he'll hire Gus. Maybe he takes a look at Roof also. JJ really casts a wide net.

I don't think there are any bodies buried anywhere. This is a common misconception when people or staffs are not let go.
I just believe that President Gouge genuinely likes the man and is willing to give him the benefit of the doubt and another shot. With that in mind, I'm starting to wonder if JJ will offer the same consideration to CGC. I am praying for a change at all levels, but readying myself for the worse.
It has also been said that the BOT has much less influence in Athletics than in the past. There is obviously good and bad in that. Consider to the Univ Prez, is really ready to retire, and has been. Who can blame him, he has done "his time". But this creates a perfect storm of "powers that be" who really just seem to be disconnected. And likely could just keep the status quo.
Whether we like it or not.
There are a few BOT's and other PTB's that Gogue is listening to. But there are several BOT's that want Jay gone but in the end Gogue is really wanting to give JJ another chance. If the change comes at Head Coach, I don;t think JJ will have much in the decision except as an advisor like Texas A&M last year.
My thoughts exactly...get the feeling he doesn't want to rock the boat on his way out even if that is what is really needed.
