The Captain is right on. When the product on the field or on the court is competitive and plays well the team(s) will be supported in the stands. The problem is that we have had presidents and boards of trustees who know nothing of athletics and could care less.

Yes and yes. It's a bit more than that though. You have to make the fan experience a good one and I don't mean bouncy houses. Who you play and when you play is critical to fan interest. They need to play good teams when people want to go to a game. They haven't been doing that. 

 

Your other point isn't the real problem. No presidents or BOT members know anything about sports at almost every school. I'd rather them take a risk on a visionary with minimal AD experience than the safe paper pushers they hire. We need a young PJ Fleck type as AD.

This is one of those times the University has to delicately tell a high profile alum, "no".

The runners still literally have indoor and outdoor track seasons, along with all women's running sports still there. Why do they need not 1, not 2, but 3 different seasons? I'd like to see what all is being including in the operating expense figure - maybe bus rides and hotel and thats it? Actually I don't even see how that could be under that figure. Maybe its legitimate, but clearly a misleading figure that is really splitting hairs considering it clearly doesn't even include coaches salary.

There are times when you row the boat and others when you bale out the water.  This period calls for the latter.

Those types of "rowers" are pretty damn rare too.  Guys like Fleck come along rarely.

Agreed that we need some enthusiasm and creativity in the AD position, but PJ Fleck himself wouldn't make a difference if everyone isn't in the boat.  This is much bigger than a one person issue.

People like Pj get the right people in the boat.

Some boats have drain plugs that drain water while the boat is moving. It's possible to do two things at once.

This administration is so incompetent it isn't even funny. The planning and logical thought process just is not there. What we need to demand as fans is a roadmap to success. We need a list of things we need to accomplish (one of which is a balanced budged), and a plan to accomplish those said things. Let's get uncomfortable, talk about things that are working, things that are not. Let's build on what is working for us, and come up with a plan to either fix or eliminate what is not working for us. Enough closed door meetings. Admin needs to put their thoughts on paper and be held accountable.

He took over a program with 3 D1-A wins the previous season, and who lost 9 of its 11 defensive starters. He began recruiting at a point in time when most programs had their full class committed.

 

How many games should he have won? 1...2...?

 

I hope he can turn it around. Like any HC, he gets 4 years to show what he can do. 

 

Defending mediocrity!  (I think that's the attack that was levied but in the opposite direction).  Sorry.  You can book it.  Arth ain't rescuing the football program.

Sounds like the Faculty Senate is unhappy about the President's plan.  I guess it all comes down to whose ox is being gored.

Do they ever like anything?  They are routinely negative.

Do you think we could have gotten Arth to come for less money?

 

 

If there an FBS program that set out to "save money" in their hiring of a coach and proceeded to have success with that coach?  None come to my mind.
