Why? The disqualifier for him not getting the offer eight years ago was, Ron did not have Division I AD experience. Oberhelman from SDS does not have D I AD experience, the PSU candidate does.
So, if that was Caly Polys disqualifier before, the guy from SDS is out of contention. Which leaves it between Chisholm and Prettyman.
So if all things are equal between those two for qualifications, which one of the two currently makes the least amount of money?
I'm just assuming the Portland State coach already makes more than Ron. So Ron has a leg up there, because Cal Poly can offer Ron a bargain basement offer, which will still be way less than what they would have to offer the guy from P-State.
So what's the next big edge that Ron has? Even though Ron may live a further away, I'm betting that it will be cheaper to relocate Ron that it would be move Chisholm. You know, everything being costlier on the West Coast, e.g. housing, taxes, transportation rates, etc.
If these last two items are a wash, it then comes down to diversity. Does Chisholm qualify for any Affirmitive Action points?
If not, Ron is going to get the job.
Of course Tea Leaf symbols being what they are, and this just being a hobby, and the fluctuations of Teaf Leaf patterns...plus trying to read the symbols from northern Indiana limits clairvoyancy. Consequently, the intuitive nature of such guesses may be wide of the tea cup, especially since it has to do with the unpredictablilty of sports, politics, and good ole brown nosing.
