Idk about Judy. I emailed him yesterday, and he made it clear he couldn’t care less about athletic donations.
I think we are missing the point. Our past three coaches have been pretty much the three molds of where you expect a coach to come from.
A: Alum, fireball, adored by other alums, good recruiter, worked his butt off in this region to get here.
B: Assistant at high major successful program, experience in A10, Great recruiter
C: Celeb, Former superstar, knows shooting, and offensive coaching inside and out. NBA assistant, great marketer
None of them have been successful. They all share something in common. I’m beginning to wonder if Brad Stevens could win here. We have serious issues at the macro level. It’s time to stop complaining about our coaches. Our product on the field/court sucks in every sport. There’s a common thread. We flat out don’t know if our coaches are good enough, because they are being handed an impossible task. Aiming vitriol at Mark Price is not going to do good things for our program.[/quote]
Not wanting you to rehash the entire string, what did Phil say to indicate he didn’t care about donations? If thats the case, the reliance on student fees is that much more criminal. He should he begging for donations to relieve the student burden, not using them as an FU to the dwindling base.
Also- I’d love to repeat the lack of success Lutz had, won one of the best non power leagues 3 times, went to 5 NCAA’s. I think the A10 and his own petering out derailed him. Major and Price certainly had/have some things going in their favor, but the hurdles both internally (Judy/Phil) and externally (Downward mobility in conferences) have killed the program. Our coaches bring a strongly worded letter to a gun fight. [/quote]
He reemed me for not donating to academics, and didn’t mention athletics at all.
“Our coaches are bringing a strongly worded letter to a gun fight” is the most accurately worded thing I have read on this board. I don’t think it’s price, major, lutz, or lambert anymore. she’s gotta go.[/quote]
He really is a pompous SOB.
My wife is an alum too, she has been wanting to donate to the business school fora few years and I keep discouraging it becasue he’s such a dick… I should be less vindictive when it comes to the academic side.[/quote]
