Nope- there are some on this blog that do not accept sub-mediocre performance and demand a quality program And then there are those who are happy with living in the basement and being a bottom dweller.

IMO- if you want your name on the big marquee then you have to step up and pay for replacing the burned out bulbs.

Anybody on this forum who is in business would never accept last years bball performance level from an employee and not take action. Real simple.

If you are in business your primary concern is not wins and losses, but revenue generated. Then you look at expenses. Firing a coach and then hiring another one can be a very expensive undertaking.

XC- with all due respect I believe that college athletics are big business (at least at most major universities) and wins and losses do indeed count. You might want to ask Chad M. about that.
I suspect our loss of revenue (season tickets, ticket sales, refreshments etc.) last year and this is pretty substantial when compared with the LB era. Less revenue effects the bottom line just as much as expenses do. In addition, I expect that tankovich's contract had an offsetting revenue clause so his buyout would not have been close to the amount often quoted. Anyway, that is all water under the bridge. If a change is not made at the end of this year I suspect this program will continue to sink further and Moody will be like a graveyard.
At least there is hope for the fball program.
