If this happens again... he'll have a really good path to the next level at ESPN... to have another "professional discussion" with them.

    CDD, saw that on SC and heard the fine "Lafayette" win.
    You are describing a situation when we lost a lead. I was wondering if there were any other instances other than Saturday when WE did so with only a few seconds remaining. Also, one minute to go is plenty of time to come back. Having 12 seconds to go after other team scores to go up two possessions is something that I never recall overcoming. I may die before I see it again. However, it happened against the right opponent on Saturday due to it being an in state game.

    So that's all it took? This has been happening for years and the new AD handles it immediately? (at least we hope it's handled.) How does that reflect on the previous athletic administration leaders?

    Which is the preferred logo as of today or going forward? Can someone with close ties inquire?

    In fairness, we don't know that Scott did not address it. We just know that if he did, it remained his secret.

    Whether it is is "handled" or not the big difference is that someone within the athletic dept. made a public statement about it and what they did. Communication!

    Now I don't think the A.D. has to be the one to communicate all the time with the general public but somebody within the organization has to and that wasn't happening. I think most people can take some bad news. At least you know. It s leaving people in a vacuum that has been the problem. Good start for our new A.D.

    By the way, RB just said he will have his call of the winning shot up on the KPEL website later today. He did just play it on the show which he is sitting in for Jay today due to the scheduled game in Hammond.

But this is not a habitual accident by ESPN.
    Good points... So it isnt the message its the messenger? If i say those things im tinfoil, but if u say it its an aha moment. Now same with new AD, he says it and its magically fixed? Hope its fixed but still makes no sense, it shouldnt take money or being in the inside

    Like every other business, sometimes having contacts that you have dealt with in the past helps move the ball along. In this case, it may very well be that Bryan Maggard has several people he has dealt with directly at ESPN while at Missouri. This is more common at P5 programs that at the lower levels of the G5.

    You probably have to have someone who's willing to pick up the phone when you call them.

    Well if you have relationships or contacts you have dealt with, that certainly would not be a concern . 😎

    My thoughts exactly. First, the motive to take action, second, the knowledge of who to speak to to correct it, third, the transparency of it all.

    I don't understand what you're saying (tinfoil and aha). As for the AD... I don't think he "fixed it". He addressed it in a way I think gives him the ability to step it up if it happens again. And no matter how we "feel" things "should be"... they are the way they are... until forces much greater than us change them.
