    I'm happy we're going bowling. I'm still concerned that Coyle's failure to do his job and support his coach hurts the University.

    As for the rest of your drivel, read the previous posts and you might find out why I mentioned Claeys salary. Just because he was let go, and justifiably so, doesn't mean we should re-write the reality of the situation when he's gone so we can feel better about the piss-poor way our jack wagon of an AD handled himself and the situation.
    First of all, your extreme hatred for Coyle makes you look mentally unhinged. It isn't healthy for someone to exhibit that much hatred for a person they don't even know. People who do know Coyle seem to like him a lot. That goes for the Board of Regents as well as the coaches who work for him. Coyle is probably going to be the U's AD for the next decade or two. It is going to be interesting to see if you can keep your hatred going for that long.

    Secondly, if you knew what you are talking about you would know the people at the U making the decisions about what to say about this matter and when to say it don't work in the AD's office. No college in America would allow their AD to make a public statement about student disciplinary matters without clearing it with the General Counsel's office. If Coyle isn't saying anything right now that is because his superiors at the U won't let him say anything.

    I certainly don't understand or agree with how PJ and Coyle have chosen to deal with this issue. "PJ will be available to the media on Dec 19th" That's signing day...let's just welcome the new guys with conversation on discipline and suspensions. That'll impress everybody.

    You can discipline players without punishing the innocent players and fans. Don't agree with not allowing these guys to practice, unless they are in fact off the team permanently?

    500 questions, we'll deal with them on signing day. Hey!!! Let's bring in Kool and the Gang and we'll all sing Celebration....thanks for joining our program.

    Thanks Mrs Coyle. I donít hate Mr. Coyle. I think heís incompetent. I think he was a bad hire. If the Admin at the U likes him, that only confirms my thinking - and Iím sure Kaler loves him given his boot-licking behavior to protect Kaler in the winter of 2016.

    What I do have for Mr. Coyle is a total lack of respect for him and have not seen him do anything that suggests he has integrity, or a clue. But hey, so far he hasnít texted anyone about mega-tongue (which probably keeps your home life happier, so Iím thankful for that) so thereís that. By lowering the bar so low early in his tenure, by being merely run of the mill incompetent he looks like heís improved.

    When he speaks he usually creates confusion, so yeah, keeping him under wraps is probably a good idea, but the public vacuum of leadership he displays is a problem, whether you want to believe it or not.

    You donít need general counsel to say, ďthere have been reports in the media regarding some of our student athletes. A handful of players are being held out of practice due to a violation of team rules. The discipline is being handled internally and weíll have no further statement regarding this situationĒ.

    Simple. Removes mystery and speculation that something bigger may have happened, and acknowledges media reports. It is basic PR

    Usually the AD or coach would do this. Assuming there is nothing substantial to this, and the timing, Coyle could put this to bed or allow PJ Fleck to do it and be over. Instead? We get uncertainty, arrogance, and speculation.

    The hallmark of every great AD is to let public speculation and the press define the story.

    Oh wait, no itís not.

    If we want to fix what happened, you need to fire Coyle and Kaler as well.

    Lucky Coyle! He's going to live forever! I knew that Highlander was a documentary! I wonder what Coyle's sword is like.

    How are the innocent players being punished? The fans are also being punished? Another what are you even talking about?

    I laughed out loud when I read that post.

    You're being punished because some college football players, unnamed, will be possibly suspended for a football game that you are going to watch on TV.

    Cant wait to see Coyle's face when the repo man shows up to take back the athletes village, new golf practice facility, new wrestling practice facility, new mariucci locker room, new track stadium. Gonna be awesome.

    This doesn't just apply to caliGirl. She's got about 100 close friends on this site.

    Smartest, most thought-out post in this entire thread. Nicely done.
