    Why did he wait? Why didn't he ask right after Beard was fired?

    Why did the thread title change to thanks Beard? Is Holland going to Ole Miss now?

    Ole Miss doesn't make sense to me. It's likely he's a one and done, and I don't care who's the new coach they're not going from 3-15 in the SEC to FF contender in a year. They've picked up one decent player in the portal and none of the remaining uncommitted players are considering Ole Miss.

    Doesn't make sense unless the only thing he cares about is $.

    I think the point may be that the roster would not have fallen apart and Holland would still be in the fold if Beard had made better choices and was still the head coach.

    Maybe or maybe not. Kids all over the country are asking out of their obligation and going somewhere else. It's really hard to read these players minds.

    I did not realize there were that many kids wanting out of their NLI.

    Beard is a great recruiter of talent, but hasn’t always been a great retainer of talent. So in this wacky world of NIL, all bets would be off even if Beard had kept his hands to himself.

    Regardless of how you phrase Beard, he won on his own. Our new guy has not and now we have lost both top recruits. One makes sense for the NBA but the other doesnt. Like some of you have said, behind the scenes recruiting or negative comments caused this since Holland isnt going pro. Every team would love to have him so he will get paid for sure!!!

    But RT made it clear he was a big reason these guys came or signed. No point in blaming Beard now.

    Will he be released?

    Normally, very against holding students hostage. But, I really think the way this was handled is in poor taste. I'm sure there's more to this story, though.

    It is up to the new coach to recruit and retain talent, do not blame the coach that is longer here. As for better choices, we are where we are because of the poor choice made by the UT administration to fire Beard.

    Beard made the choice knowing what would happen to him.

    In the world we live in today, the UT Administration had no choice.
