Does it really hurt your feelings?

I think it’s moronic to give a coach a free pass coming off one of the worst statistically college football seasons of all time.
It has nothing to do with feelings or free passes superfan. Try using your brain. This thread is totally moronic in every respect because there is ZERO chance of Walt Bell being fired in the midst of a pandemic after only 2 years of a 5 year contract. This thread is totally moronic in every respect. Does that fact hurt your feelings?
I thought that maybe you would have used your brain and thought back to 2013. Umass bought out a coach after year 2 of a 5 year contract who had a 2-22 record. The total buyout was $836,000. The money was donated by a true Superfan.

According to Bell’s contract, the buyout during year 3 is 100% year 3, 75% year 4, 75% year 5. This would be a total buyout of $1,562,500.

Even though we are still in a pandemic, there are lot of new millionaires out there. I’m sure there are plenty of posters on here who would pay the 1.5 if they just won 50 million on gamestock.

I just can’t buy into your ZERO percent claim. Not saying it’s likely but it’s been done here before.

^
let's hope with the new staff hires, we can get to a .500 win/loss ratio, and go from there.
All due respect, and I mean that from the bottom of my heart, I'm gonna pass.

I would not guarantee that. If he puts up another 0 and whatever this year while getting blown out in every game I could see him getting the axe.

^ I agree. He's not getting 2 more years if the teams sucks this year (fewer than 2 wins). If they win 2 or 3, he probably gets another year to see if he's actually building something.

If the team scores three offensive touchdowns in 12 games this coming fall (after one out four games last fall), I can't see him coming back--he should just resign. :P

Seriously, hopefully the new staff, who look like real coaches over Bell's buddies and the transfers should lead to more competitive football. If the team goes 0-12, 1-11 and is blown out like the past two season, he won't be coming back.
