Who's the Better AD?
Jiff Comphers or STF? Discuss based on the accomplishments of each. Right now, if you could trade STF for Jiff, would you do it?

Not sure how I would answer it, but I do know that I do NOT like STF.

RE: Who's the Better AD?
Well that STF guy seems like a real mope based upon his crazy comments about the AAC. I assume that his frustration was due to the AAC's P6 campaign and how it was creating a real perception image with the public and media. It seems like he should spend less time venting about the AAC publicly and more time trying to get NIU into the AAC privately. His priorities seem very flawed, but whatever.

Compher on the other hand just flat out sucks. That guy is terrible. ECU is firing him so NIU can have him back as soon as tomorrow.

Alright!! Here is our opportunity!! Let's bring Jiff back! With him will come Shelly Binegar back. His first move will be to fire Monty and bring back Ricardo Patton. And, Shelly will get on the phone and start screaming at the donors. Ah, the good times!!

RE: Who's the Better AD?
Compher admitted in a recent interview following the season he didn't go on the field for in-game ceremonies during this past football season in fear of being booed by the fans, and in turn, taking away from the guests ECU were honoring.

Will STF be in this boat come September?

ECU fans were flying "Fire Compher" banners during the football games while he sitting at the games. He was that terrible.

http://www.newsobserver.com/sports/colle...18036.html

The idiot literally fired the winning football coach for no reason, but kept the loser basketball coach. Not to mention that he gave the loser basketball coach a contract extension even though no other school would have hired that lazy bum. The basketball coach literally had to quit on his own, because the A.D. was to stupid to fire him. Compher was literally surprised that the basketball coach quit, even though the coach had not had a competitive team in years.

Sounds like the perfect re-hire for NIU! How's our friend Shelly doing these days? Has she yelled at any donors?

She is the punch line of jokes among ECU message board fans. She has taken to twitter in recent years to try to explain why we don't suck as much as the fans think. See if only the fans would have positive thoughts then this thing could turn around. Mind you now things didn't completely go to Hell until Compher got there.

RE: Who's the Better AD?
I honestly wonder what would happen if NIU just hired someone with more of a corporate management background. The whole "sport management" thing has some value...but would you rather have someone like Barsema running things or a guy that's experience consists of handling misc. athletic department work and shadowing another AD that could be incompetent anyway. Hire somebody that knows how to run a business with an emphasis on sales, marketing and team management. Are there many instances of colleges hiring more business background ADs rather than "sport management" lifers?

If schedules were manageable with the other AD then I prefer him. Frazier sucks

Being paid $250K a year to not work for 5 years?

It's good to be Jif.

Quote:The ECU Board of Trustees has approved Athletic Director Jeff Compher’s buyout, which will amount to $1,262,500 over the next five years.

The announcement came during a Board of Trustees meeting Friday.

The payments, according to the university, will equal 50 percent of what Compher would have earned had he been kept on.

Compher will stay in his role through May 1, which means he will earn a $140,000 longevity bonus that takes affect April 30, marking five years at the school.

If Compher gets a new athletics-related positions somewhere else, the university payments to him would be reduced on a dollar-for-dollar basis after he earns $192,500 per year at a new position.
