Leave it to the pros, ctd.

Athletic director at University of Louisiana-Monroe attempts to justify his school playing so many road games not by stating the obvious, which would be they need the guaranteed money from cupcake games, but rather, that the school’s fans  “…  can’t afford to pay for a season ticket with 6 home games.”  Way to build morale there, fella.

Somebody mentioned AD school in the comments the other day.  Sadly, that’s not such a bad idea.

    Hell of a recruiting pitch for players. “Join the Hawks, see the world.”

    Iggy Azalea is doing their Homecoming game, so there’s that.

    I think the biggest problem with most mid majors is that many of their alums are not the doctors, lawyers, engineers, accountants, etc. with the disposable income to donate and buy tickets. Too many school teachers, small business owners and farmers. The guy has a point.

    Yes, it’s too bad the Duck Commander patriarch is a LA Tech guy, their money would help.

    They already have AD School…

    Either can we.

    AD school, where making good grades means you’re not qualified for the job.

    Any of you here that send kids to a private school, or went to one, or teach at one already know the deal. The AD is really the development director. Everyone correctly assumes that an AD should be focused on the day to day operations of university student athletes, sadly, that’s down the list from raising money and coddling high power donors.
