While I would have preferred that Shaver honor his commitment to UCSB, it's difficult for me to care much when he turns his back on UCSB.  Was it purely because of Williams not getting renewed or is this just a convenient out for him now that his prospects have improved?  If it's the former, that tells me he didn't choose UCSB for UCSB.  If it's the latter, then his commitment to play here for 4 years was likely never in the cards anyway.

Yes, it's a loss, but it's not one that will cause me consternation or give me pause about not renewing Bob.  Whenever coaches are fired or not renewed, there will be committed recruits that might bail, and for me, that was always baked into the cake and part of the calculus when Bob was let go.  Bob had to go.
