RE: Chicago State Death Spiral
Chicago State has a ton of issues, but the issues can be resolved with good leadership. They have basic functions that are not working at this time: Accounts Receivable, Accounts Payable, Procurement, the ability to give leadership accurate month-to-month financial data. Marketing and a satellite campus might help. These can be fixed with good leadership.

According to Paul Vallas, Chicago State is “on the right track.” I don't know if Vallas is correct, but he was going to leave in July, so his leaving now to run for Mayor is just not a big deal. What is important, does the leadership exist to turn Chicago State around in the next 3-5 years?

The immediate problem for the WAC with regards to Chicago State is not about them leaving or getting kicked out. The immediate problem is their total lack of competitiveness. They are killing the conference RPI in every sport they participate in.

The non-conference "money games" are not helping their won-loss record, but they do bring in at least $500,000 per year in much needed revenue to the athletic program.

So how do they get back to fielding a competitive basketball program, which they did have from 2012-2014? Without sacrificing their "money games?" Or how do they field a decent baseball team or woman's basketball team? The WAC is not going to kick them out and they are not leaving. So how do they get more competitive in athletics?

That is the real question, not the "Death Spiral."

They need an AD, not an AD/HMBBC.

I would agree with that.
