We have been a way station for young dynamic leaders. So we went the lifer route, That's not all bad. It has provided stability. But it hasn't done much else.Birdswin wrote: ↑Sun Mar 04, 2018 10:57 pmI can tell you, I hear the same thing from a lot of my old roommates and friends who are alums - and from alums who I happen to know from my work (which takes me all over the state) - they all say similar things as ChiRedbirdfan.
I am frustrated as well - I think it is clearly a lack of dynamic leadership in the Athletic Administration. The folks we have are very nice and hard working people - however, they are not leaders for growth and do not understand how to grow attendance and support. Sort of like Hein as a player - gives you everything he has, works hard, hustles, but lacks overall athleticism. - is a role player/contributor, but is not a primary/star player.
In the meantime others are passing us by.
We gotta get in the tourney. This was a huge loss for the program. I really thought we had a shot going in. Winning cures all else and there is plenty of talent returning, but waiting for next year never works out. It took new young bright management team to get the Cubs out of their malaise. Dan's the right coach to get it done. He needs the right support as in servant leadership with a vision.
