Re: Tomorrows Game - The New Beginning or the Beginning of the End!!!
Dennis, Thank you for being such a stand-up guy who is willing to shoulder his fair share and more.
I had sort of thought that I would just quietly skip tomorrow afternoons game, but I am now think that I will try to attend. I can tell from this board, and my own personal feelings that we are at a breaking point. If we somehow win, maybe that will be the beginning of the turnaround that all of us are looking for! But... if we lose, I want to see some changes and I would like to see them before all or most of loyal fans walk away from the program. I met with a member of the athletic department for lunch this afternoon and again expressed my frustration. I already make a pretty sizeable donation to the athletic foundation each year (based upon what I can afford to give). I told the person that I had lunch with that I was just worn out on MBB and did not really care if I attended games in the future. I also said that it was WAY past the time for changes in my opinion. I said that if we lost tomorrow, that I would probably just watch most of the rest of the season on ESPN+ if at all.
After some discussion of the topic of MBB, and a discussion of the real facts about what a change at this time would cost us, I suggested that not making a change now might be even more costly if we continue to lose fans because we are doing nothing. Although it is something that I really do not want to do, I told the individual that I would add $10,000 a year to my donation to help offset costs if we do make a change. This would be a drop in the bucket as to the $$$ that would be required, but we have got to start some place. Anyone willing to put their money up to help this cause???
