RE: spring football starts
Wonder if JC will make an appearance, as he is here til 5/1.

Hope so, as I'd like to thank him for running a well-respected program that for the most part is filled with Student-Athletes we can be proud of.

You can choose to poke holes in some areas, but I will especially remember the time frame from the MACC/DD leaving/RC hired/the OB. He had to be going 24/7.

Definitely did a great job in regards to NIU athletic academics and running a clean program...which is saying something with all our University issues going on.

Tell him we want a 1 and 1 with ECU. Also remind him not to steal any pens or ashtrays (or coaches) on the way out.

Completely failed though in the biggest job of an AD, which is unfortunate.

I assume they are joking. What would be really cool is if some bigger scheduling annoucement about a home game could be made close to the spring game. Anything to get the fan base excited would really be welcome and help season ticket sales, even if the game is in 2015 or 2016. We just need something to latch onto.

I would assume that this wouldn't be done until we get a new AD who believes in scheduling higher-profile opponents.

Yeah you are probably right, what is the timetable on a new AD, I think its not good to leave that position open long.

I'm sure the new AD won't be selected until after we get a new President. We'll need to sit tight for a few months as one of the able-bodied Assistant ADs runs the show.

Would that be something if in those few month the assistant AD landed a decent home opponent, Id find it funny if that individual did more in two months than Compher did in X number of years.

I doubt they would do that...unless they were in the running for the position.
