Crickets


Recommended Posts

...In the past I and others have pointed out how hush the athletic department and director is when things are going poorly. The apologists usually rebuttal with the notion of that being unprofessional. 

So, I've been purposefully paying attention to other struggling programs. They almost ALL send out formal Twitter releases asking for continued support and/or vowing to see improvement through. I'm too lazy to go grab all the Twitter links to post, but go ser for yourself. 

Yet, here we are, 3+ years of incompetent football and....crickets.

The other programs -know- they are struggling.  We just came off a bowl game year.  So there's no struggle, right?   /s

We have two mindsets floating around Denton. Either you...

1) Acknowledge things aren't great, but no immediate action is necessary because - relative to our pathetic past - we have been doing some great things.  I know that Vito is firmly planted in this mindset.  This, or you...

2) think things are awful.  You don't care about the past because you only see our current spending, you see what other programs are doing, as well as worry about our future in the AAC, and how we are not meeting these new expectations.

Neither mindset seems to want to empathize or relate to the other.

As far as our AD, I like the idea of keeping this in house and professional, but I also realize this makes it seem like you are also of mindset 1.
