Griffin is sophomore stud at Taft, should be top 40 player at minimum if not all American. Peterson is son of former west high star Darryl Peterson, he plays up in Akron and basically already top 10 player on his class.

The saga continues for day 10,487......

Per Justin Williams,

Brannen's attorny Tom Mars, has taken the position that John Cunningham "had no authority under ohio law or Brannen's contract to place him on admin leave"-"with or without pay".

Mars is also arguing that suspending Brannen without legal authority would have significant ramifications as both sides attempt to solve this matter. Mars is working with Bennett Speyer, an ohio lawyer who specializes in sports contracts, and Erik Solverud, who works a law firm representing AD's, coaches and NCAA member institutions.

UC has declined to comment on the matter.

Sigh....

Pretty good podcast by B. Fox, Justin Williams and B. Fox's lawyer friend on the whole saga. Not a lot new.

Lawyer said it's in UC's best interest to remain silent (give Brannen and Mars as little ammo as possible). Mars seems to be trying to drag this out into public and turn the fanbase against them - with the idea that it will get them to settle quicker for more money to get it over with.

Another case of hopefully UC knows what they are doing. It was reported (by Chad among others) on last Tuesday that UC planned to put Brannen on administrative leave, but something in the contract prevented it. They put him on administrative leave on Saturday, so I would assume they found that they had legal authority and Tom Mars is just saber rattling to sway public opinion towards his side.

With each day that goes by itís another day of proof that there was probably nothing significant.

If there was it would be cut and dry.

Lol. Read this message board and his strategy is working. Cunningham, Pinto and the BOT knows what they are doing. They are likely screening replacement coaches as well.

I agree, there have been multiple reports than coaching circles have rumored Brannen is gone for the last few weeks. I assume because we have been in behind the scenes contact with coaches we are interested in. I expect a new coach to be hired quickly (likely within 48 hours) after Brannen is fire.

Interestingly the lawyer on B. Fox's podcast also said that his advice to Brannen and his team would be to shut up. The Tom Mars method may backfire, essentially piss the BoT off enough that they are willing to go to court and try their best to ensure Brannen gets nothing rather then settle.

They also said that Brannen will probably be fired pretty much immediately after the third party fact finder investigation is completed. But right now we are all waiting on the fact finders and we don't really know how long it will take.

I listened to that podcast also. A lot of what they stated made sense. They also seemed to indicate that the making the players continue to practice against the advice of the medical staff may be enough to satisfy for cause termination. They said it depends on the comfort level of the BOT and other decision makers with that being enough. They also did not foreclose other factors that have not been released publicly even though they have not heard anything from inside sources.
