If you wonder why I feel like most college athletic directors are generally clueless when it comes to hiring/firing decisions, here are just a few recent snapshots to ponder:
Hard to argue with this conclusion:
Does this really strike you as a pattern of guys who have the first clue as to what they’re doing? Colorado State’s probably the closest to being rational, but, then again, Corch as a consultant? Only thing he’s got insight on is that he had a couple of those guys on his staffs. I’m sure he’s gonna step right up and say he made a mistake hiring them.
Mandel’s also right about this.
Ordinarily I’d say clueless and pressured is no way to go through life, son, but this is college football we’re talking about. If things don’t work out, they’ll just pay the buyout and make the same mistakes again in hopes that they get lucky next time around.
