Joel Nielsen Contract
Danny73, I am not doubting your info. I am just disappointed in it. It's a lethargic dept that needs a change at the top. Marketing, direction of the programs, endowments. Nothing is trending up. We are the third largest university in the state. We need to act like it!!

RE: Joel Nielsen Contract
Joel has had his ups and downs as well as controversies and big successes throughout his tenure. His youngest daughter committed to play golf @ KSU, so I would imagine he plans on sticking around for a while with his other 2 daughters current sophmores on the KSU women's golf team.

The facilities improvement has really helped a few of the programs take the next step, but some questionable hires & fires/forced resignation have been puzzling.

President Beverly Warren is a refreshing change from Lefton & Cartwright, who could have cared less about athletics or at least that is/was the perception. President Warren has been pushing for changes in different parts of the athletic department (facilities and other items), so I think the trajectory is pointing up as long as she is here.

I wouldn't lump Cartwright w/Lefton by any stretch ... She was quite involved with athletics both at Kent and nationally and spearheaded a lot of NCAA legislation beneficial to the MAC ... Lefton is the one who buried athletics in a hole KSU is still digging out of ... Warren and Cartwright spent more meaningful time on athletics in one week than lefton did in his career ...

I use to see Pres. Cartwright at the men's games but didn't notice Pres. Warren at the games except for ceremonial events-like UNLEASH. Maybe she had different seating and wasn't as visible to me.

Dr. Warren was at the majority of the men's games. She may have missed a few. Usually near center court, a few rows up in the chairbacks.
