I wish Coach Arth and the team well. I hope he can figure things out and turn it around. I also hope that this is a regrouping and rebuilding anomaly. And I also hope that he can prove his doubters wrong and prove to those who hired him that they were right. There's no point is stating the obvious about what I saw at the game today. He (and Kato) just laid a huge egg at Homecoming, against the rival team, in front of a really nice crowd and the new president. I am certain there will be a reckoning (but at what cost) for all those involved if this turns out to be the colossal fail that it "seems" to be at the moment. Who was on the search committee? My guess is that his looks, charm, and blue-blood St. Ignatius/NE Ohio background swayed them heavily.
Like someone else said a while back, firing Bowden and hiring Arth were separate decisions. I agreed with the first, but I'm really wondering now about the second. As for Kato, HipZip is correct, time to move on. He (much like I think Jimond Ivey was on the basketball program) is not a team player and has earned misplaced loyalty from the coaching staff.
