Other than that... retain Montgomery at whatever cost we can, and decide if Haith is worth his paycheck.

Tulsa has a football attendance problem. I was surprised at the lack of people at the game last year. I have been hard on Tulsa in the past a laughing hysterically about Tulsane. Tulsa has separated itself from Tulane, but in order to take the next step must consider attendance.

Honest question: Did you all really think Tulsa and Tulane were on the same level? No offense to Tulane, but we've generally had the upper hand against them athletically.

Yes, my only understanding of Tulsa was from the first couple of years of league play.

We're 11-2 against them... and one of those losses came in 1968.

And the other came in the first 2 years of AAC play. So I guess it's understandable to have seen us on the same level. Historically we've dominated them though.

Correction: It was our last year in CUSA they beat us.

Basketball, yes. Football, we're on the right track. Not worried about that.

Basketball attendance should be better for the best home schedule in years (assuming the team is better as well).

Speaking of batting... we need to make a change in baseball, but when we hired Butler, he was the obvious choice. It turned out to be a bum hire and fans complain about the size of his guaranteed contract, but a coaching prospect like Butler wouldn't have come to WSU following the firing of the winningest coach in NCAA history without job security. He gets one more year, then we have another shot at hiring a coach worthy of the program's tradition.

How do think the baseball team will be this year?

My guess is really, really awful. But I'm an unabashed Butler-hater. I think he should have been fired after Year 3. I think it's beyond embarrassing that he wasn't fired after year 4. Not competing for championships in MVC baseball means we are going to get steamrolled in the AAC. I just hope it's bad enough that not changing coaches becomes untenable.
