The others were gently forced out. Tierney chose to go on his own


That's what I'm saying is the difference. Tierney could have stayed at Princeton, but he wanted more control over who he could bring in and Denver was willing to give him that plus a raise.

E.g. I know of at least one player who started for DU in recent years who didn't initially pass the NCAA clearinghouse, and there's absolutely zero shot that kid would have been accepted to Princeton even if he was Gary Gait, Jim Brown, or Tillman Johnson good on the field. I'm sure he's not the only one Tierney has pushed through there and that wasn't going to happen at Princeton.
