@Coachm - Thanks for the view on the closure. I completely neglected the 410 and it looks like it might the better way to go in order to get the pages out of the index quicker.
I had considered using 301 of every page to the homepage, but they really haven't moved, and I don't think it would be the right status. I may still use it on the strongest pages.
