pretty much this. given that they need someone to step in immediately and hit the ground running in time for the draft, summer, etc. it is quite plausible that MacT is best suited to just take over, rather than scowering the industry for an outsider. That due diligence should have been done last year, but, then that would have been too obvious they were looking for Tambo's replacement.

when you think about it, bringing on an old buddy that you trust can do the job, as another voice for the management (but, covertly, he is there as a backup plan for a late firing if exactly what happened happens) isn't such a bad idea. and clever chess.

but, yeah, it does smack of ol' boys nepitism. oh well. this time, i'm not so upset with it. Tambo had to go and Lowe was ready for it. not so bad, really.
