    That's why there are only a dozen or so of you left on here, tbh ;-)

    Is it building a program to have 6 recruits already having collegiate experience? Or is it someone looking to try and make an impact and get another big job. Fire away at me lol
  3. That was my confusion....if he is so good, why is he essentially going to be in school for what......5 years now?

    The continued results of poor decision making. This would not have happened if we would have made Tressel president (I got slammed for supporting him too). Who the f**k runs this s**t show?

    You question what is being repeated....either you didn't read what I have said or you don't understand. Can you explain this one to me....."We've got the coach who has shown he can take a MAC school where we want it to go." Groce went 14-18. Is that where we want to go? He had a .600ish record at Ohio, went to the regional semifinal and left the next year. Is that where we want to go? Also the putting lipstick on a pig thing you referenced (lighting, scoreboards, etc.) What do you do you mean by "given the circumstances". Are you referring to the financial distress the school is under? If so, how can you not understand my point? BTW - if UA would have kept the commitment they made to Huggie, he would have stayed much longer.

    So why was INfo built?

    I would ask the same...how is making the same mistakes over and over productive. I dont come come on here much anymore so my timing is bad. Everyone seems content with the direction so GO ZIPS!

    Appreciate the feedback. Basically you are OK with the investments and decisions UA has made and you are looking forward to "next year". That is awesome! I also hope next year is great.

    That is my kind of my point. Hug left because originally a commitment was made to him to make UA a basketball power. BUT then Gerry Faust became available and was given a blank check to make football the priority. Hug was pissed and left shortly after. It was a poor decision that has been repeated. KD wanted a new arena and would have stayed had it been built BUT a decision was made to build the INfo and hire another Notre Dame reject to take over the team. Not saying Hug would have stayed forever, I am telling you he got shafted and left. Ditto for KD. Not saying KD is as good a coach as Hug but I do believe facilities and attendance bring in better recruits. Add LBJ, we had a rare opportunity to make a splash on the national stage. Instead we have a giant football stadium 1/5th filled. Football is is too expensive and it’s futile to try and compete with what will ultimately be (or is) a 4 league D1 competition. We we should have taken the Xavier, Gonzaga, Wichita State, Dayton model. Which schools have more pride? Which schools are ridiculed for have the worst attendance/Gameday experience for football.
