I think this is all about getting Skinny some info to make his decision with. I would imagine whomever the new OC is will have some discretion over KB (to a lesser extent Huff and Junior because of their recruiting).
On D – I think Gregory will be DAO’ed most likely. But I think it’s nothing urgent like getting Skinny the info. That’s why I think it’s gone down this way.
No proof in hand, but it’s just my thot.
