OK, so put yourself in the AD spot. Do you keep Paul on for another year or two and let some other school take Tripp as their coach or do you hand the reigns over to the next generation? There is no doubt they will be much better next year, but every AD has to look at the future of their program. I guarantee you that Tripp will be offered quite a few head coaching spots at the end of the season and he has been very patient the past 6 years.

I'm sorry but their freshman and sophomores are not the top freshman and sophomores in the country right now so they are not going to stand up to any top 15 team for years to come. At very best they are #4 in the Pac 12. That may cut it at some schools but not Stanford.
