Re: All Time Low For Me
I certainly hear your concerns, but I think that it really falls to the performance of MBB. WBB is undefeated... Water Polo is in the NCAA Tournament... Tennis is almost always good... WVB seems to be making a positive turnaround... MVB should be outstanding... Baseball and softball should both be good. So there some positives, but I share your concern about MBB. Hope that we can get it turned around...!!!
Speaking as a person who went to LBSU during the golden years for almost all sports from 1968-1971 I don't think I've ever seen the overall athletic program at this low a level. We have had poor basketball teams in the past but the rest of the department was usually achieving on a high level. Our basketball team is at almost rock bottom. Except for the first half vs. UCLA we have basically played awful basketball. Except for Mens Volleyball we really have no sport that will achieve on the national level like in the past. Water Polo is having a good year and Baseball may be Top 25 this year. We used to ranked in the Top 20 year in and year out in many sports. Sorry to say but with Mr. Fee as AD I think this trend will continue. We need to get an AD that thinks outside the box and Andy really just kind of rolls with the punches. It's very sad to see the deterioration of our once proud athletic program. I had Fred Miller as an AD when I attented, probably one of the most innovative, pro-active AD's anyone could have. Last night put a cap on a downward spiral that looks like it will continue for quite a long time. Very sad to see!
