Added, a new Athletic Director that doesn’t want to go down Hadens way. And the reality Football doesn’t run our University, the University runs our football and it’s not a priority for them right now. They have bigger issues to figure out than one subpar poor performance season. To run around and react and try to get someone great in here in a unstable environment with no money to pay for him - who would really want to coach here, right now with all the restrictions and focus along with character and integrity of the Head Coach which we will never go down the path we did again for the University’s vision of character based leadership. Just sub par coaches and desperate ones - we are better than that and yes we have to wait it out till our Univesity is settled down and this gives a year lead time with no pressure on searching for that right person if this program remains the same. We were all spoiled for the dominance we had in the country of the game. We have had too many NCAA sanctions that have crushed our program, bad hires and bad management- take this as a positive - Clay is on the Hot Seat and we could suffer another year but that will be the end of it- we are not ready or capable to move on this year - deal with the reality Fight On” USCFAM, gubo&palanka and zitorocks like this.
