At first glance, I am surprised by this. I like TK and what he’s done. I have not been paying attention to what has been going on in regards to the AD, is this a surprise to anyone else?
Good point, Jive. Even though we are not consistently competitive in most sport outside of MBB, a few programs have fallen on hard times recently.I enjoyed TK personally, but when was the last time a team other than Mens Basketball competitive? As the AD you are responsible for all the programs (duh!) and the only one doing well is the one that was already on track when TK was brought in.
I'm of two minds about the addition of LAX, it was cool that in year 3 they improved quite a bit, but at what cost? Is LAX or whatever program you want to pick on becoming a money pit under TK? If it was a money situation, are the trustees being tight knowing they have to go hire a new president and that is going to come with considerable cost? I think there is a lot going on behind the scenes that only people in the room know for sure.
Thsanks for the explianation about LAX. Ibelieve during the Monmouth LAX game I saw an add that included water polo and thought that was strange but with you explaination it makes more sense now. Also that may be an intersting sport to add if Bonas gets to that point in the future.Lax is a very good enrollment-driving sport. Players tend to come from more affluent families, so it’s probably a good long term investment. Some schools are adding water polo for the same reason.
With Kenney, I think some info will trickle out. So far, I’ve heard it was a “death by a thousand cuts” situation.
