Re: AD interviews and candidates

Football was just one of the many examples. Yes, basketball does it all the time so the scenario could fit anyone. The athletic department just needs to be smart about where they are making cuts in their budget. You can't expect to be a DI school, but operate on a D2/D3 mentality then complain when ...

Re: AD interviews and candidates

I understand cutting cost, but if cutting cost affects teams and their ability to compete than the AD office need to figure out solutions. Ex: Football team travel the last game. How do you expect any team to be at their best when they need to be when they must travel on a bus for 6-8 hours. What is...

Re: Basketball coaching changes

Now would be the time to look elsewhere with Daum leaving. We were going to find out how good of a coach he really is next year. He inherited a lot of talent!

Re: AD interviews and candidates

Current leadership in the Athletic Dept has not been good. My question though, is that necessarily Danielle's fault? Or are her hands tied by the current Administration? If that's the case, doesn't really matter who get's hired until the problem is solved at the top. I agree, I also believe there h...

Re: At Sioux Falls

I feel so bad for the boys. Kobe was visibly upset before he even left the floor. This group has grown tremendously in the last 2 games. You know a week ago they would have folded under pressure against SDSU, and tonight when getting down by so many. They fought to the last second. All season long I...

Re: At Sioux Falls

Big LOL at couple JACK fans complaining about the physicality of the game and not getting the calls and referring to Gilbeck as a “thug”. Physicality is definitely not this team's middle name! What bothers me is when grown adults "fans" begin to call kids names personally. #1 it's a game, #2 do you...

Last 10 seconds of the game. South Dakota State with the ball and down by three.
Love the fact that you can here the great Danny Frey in the background.
I love listening to Danny also. He definitely knows how to hype up a game!

Re: At Sioux Falls

I am happy for the team and this win because they played well! Hats off to CJ Duff. It will not show up in the stats, but he does a hell of a job on defense. Flatten who was on fire last week when we played them was a non-factor tonight.

Re: Quasi-Official Tom Douple Summit Tourney Thread

I have a cheerleader in one of my courses. She said there are only three cheerleaders, so she won't be heading to the tournament. I am not sure if she is speaking specifically for herself or the whole squad.
