Seems to me that you have a solid pipeline and some dead weight. Why not focus on allowing the young talent to develop and try to rid the deadweight, if possible? Not replacing it with more of the same (bloated shiny UFA contracts).

But feel free to endorse repeating the approach that, for the most part, has been the M.O. of the Sather era. Just remember Einstein's definition of insanity.
Do you realize why we've never stayed the course? It's the product that is assembled season after season, or the product we fail to keep season after season. If we had a legit contending team w/ pieces in place we wouldnt be going through these make overs year after year. Sather neeeds to go.
