Just pissin’ away money

Iowa’s athletic department has spent almost a million dollars on a no-bid basis with a guy to provide game-day video services because “Jim provides consistency for our department.”

It’s seeking new proposals now, so Jim’s obviously done a bang-up job.

Somehow these guys have convinced themselves they’re management geniuses.  In my next life, I’d like to come back as a P5 athletic director.

    I think brand awareness campaigns are the new thing everyone thinks they need cause everybody else is doing it even though they’re not quite sure what it is, what the deliverable should be.

      You sure about that, Chuck? Not to mention cost of services provided, you would have to watch every single play of every single Iowa football game for an entire season. I’m not sure 250 k would cover that….

    It may be too late for you to begin a new career as an athletic director, but with your legal background you could set up a pretty solid consulting firm and make millions telling existing ADs what they already want to hear. If you can’t join ’em, bilk ’em.
