I know there’s a mega thread but this is worthy of it’s own discussion:
Virginia provost Katsouleas appointed UConn president
>>Katsouleas said he also understands the importance of UConn as an athletic institution and said he’s committed to keeping the Huskies as a major player in college sports.
“Yes, I’m committed to football,” he said. “I think it’s part of the identity of who we are as a major, broad-context university and I don’t think savings from cutting it are as great as people think.”
He said he’s also committed to building the American Athletic Conference and has no plans to try and move the school into a different one.<<
I believe in :He knows 1% of what we know on the topic. He doesn’t have a magical way to fund it short of eliminating other sports.
Looking in the way back machine wasn't it Lou Perkins who first was given the task of finding a way to fund the Athletic Dept. with no state funds? With the largess of the AD right now this has been lost along the way.One thing about UVA, it is largely funded by private and non-state sources. If the new president can lessen UConn's reliance on state government funds, athletics and other areas would benefit.
What else is he going to say publically though? "We're stuck in an underpaid halfway decent conference that'll never get paid as much as others, but we are actively trying to leave"?
I’d have a lot more respect for anyone in Storrs who has the guts to say our University and our fans deserve better than the AAC and I’m going work my rear off until that happens.What is suppose to say, seriously? You dance with who you bring to the dance, but if a better offer comes, then you leave with them.
I’d have a lot more respect for anyone in Storrs who has the guts to say our University and our fans deserve better than the AAC and I’m going work my rear off until that happens.
But everyone in storrs is an overpaid loser who only cares about their next job and not where UConn lands yet everyone pats them on the back for ‘saying the right thing’.
then tomorrow the football class is filled with d-ii transfers and the enablers will be like this is awesome
