    They must have edited out the part where he said, "unless another University offers me a pile of cash."

    Have you been living under a rock? Programs have offered him lots more cash than he's making right now EVERY season.

    You do realize that he's been offered piles of cash by other schools and turned them down, right? Both A&M and Nebraska offered him a pile of cash. He's still here.

    I'll be concerned if Kansas comes looking around. Otherwise, he's not going anywhere.

    I got this second hand from a mutual friend who spoke to Tad a couple years ago. No link, so sorry.

    Neither A&M nor Nebraska are better jobs than Colorado. Nebraska basketball might be one of the worst college basketball jobs out there.

    There are plenty of schools that are better than Colorado who have a lot more money to pay. Kansas would seem to be the biggest concern.

    If it ever comes down to a bidding war between CU and one of college basketball's elites, I wouldn't favor Colorado.

    Thank you for the link. No indication that any offer was made, however. Even the link provided indicates Tad should stay put unless it is "crazy money."

    And thank you for this link, as well. Again, no mention of any offer being made, nor any mention of the amount of money offered.

    Still good information. I would hope that when competition comes for Boyles' services, it is a suitor more worthy than Nebraska or A&M.

    Sorry Slade, but this debate is old. The man loves it here. Also, as much as I hate Nebraska, it's far from the worst job out there (aside of the whole residing in Nebraska thing). No, those aren't the greatest offers, but as long as he keeps winning (and thus being desirable), cu will keep ponying up enough to keep him around. ..

    Along with this, I can confirm that at least two other schools made Tad offers that would knock his current salary out of the water and he turned them down.

    Slade, no link, so feel free not to listen to me on this and continue your pointless bitching.

    The "pointless bitching" usually comes in March / April.

    Cal offered him the job this past offseason for over $2 million I think. Cal if a pretty damn good job in college basketball IMO.

    I just hope Oklahoma never offers him, that would be worrisome.

    As much as I'd rather not give the Nubs any credit, that new arena of theirs is ****ing nice. Might be a little sterile (I haven't been in it), but that facility has amenities we can only dream about (for now).

    He loves it in Boulder, but CU had best not get complacent or take him for granted. (oh ****, we're CU of course we will.)

    Lon Kruger is doing some nice things at OU, but I wouldn't consider that to be an elite level job.

    I can say that I'm not terribly shocked by this, given tad's a colorado kid and has mentioned MANY times how he regrets not playing for CU. I'd probably only be worried about KU at this point.

    He's got a boss that will basically give him whatever he wants, a solid team and his ability to recruit is only going to continue (given he continually puts kids in the NBA - and I think we can all agree that ahd spencer not gotten injured, he'd have 3 1st round picks in as many years.)

    I can only imagine the exploratory dialog between third parties and Boyle.

    A&M &/o Nub Representative: "Tad, I have been retained by a prestigious university that competes in the _______ conference to develop a list of candidates for their head coaching job. Are you interested?

    HCTB: "I'm listening. What is your pitch?"

    Agent: The school is _______ and they are wanting to interview you before talking money. It's safe to say that they will make it worth your while. Are there any specific number or terms that you have in mind?

    HCTB: I don't have a specific number in mind, but It's going to take a hell of a lot to pry my wife and me out of Boulder to uproot and move to __________.

    Agent: Would a contract that pays termination liabilities, gives you a guaranteed 5 year contract, has a base salary twenty percent higher than your current CU deal, and performance incentives that could double your income if you go deep into the dance be of interest?

    HCTB: Is that what is being offered?

    Agent: No. I'm not authorized to deliver an offer, but I would like to report back to my client with a range of reasonableness.

    HCTB: Listen. Let's not waste each other's time. I'm excited to be wanted. But this isn't the right point in my career to pick up and move to (Lincoln / College Station). But keep me in mind down the road. (Hangs up)

    ....

    HCTB phones CUAD. Hey Mike/Rick, an other big money school wanted to sell me on taking a job at (name of university). It's a 5 year deal with a 20% raise, better performance incentive. Do you have my back?

    CUAD: You keep filling the Keg, Tad, and CU will keep filling up your Brinks truck. Let's get your agent on the phone and we can work something out.

    That's all great - and I think what Tad is doing at Colorado is fantastic.

    But let's not kid ourselves here. If Bill Self retires in 5 years or so, and Kansas comes calling on Boyle, and offers him a long term contract with a substantial raise (Bill Self is getting $5 million per year, today) Boyle is going to seriously listen. I'll be extremely pleasantly surprised and I'll be happy to admit I was wrong if CU matches that type of offer.

    Tad is good and has a KU pedigree. But I'm not sure the Jayhawks fan base want a HC with zero sweet 16 or better experience. No way Tad is currently KU's top prospect.

    I don't know that and I'm not kidding myself.

    I do not know Tad and Ann Boyle to say what is important to them and driving them. There's evidence that they love this state, love the CU experience and aren't particularly motivated by money or bright lights.

    Tad may very well look at Mark Few as the smartest coach in college basketball.

    On the other hand, there may come a point when the competitor in Tad grows frustrated if he sees a success ceiling at CU. If that happens, he may want to see what he can do if he's got the resources a place like Kentucky or Kansas or North Carolina would offer. Or the NBA. Most coaches choose that path if those opportunities present themselves.
