Now I know what the U will do with the extra $600 they squeezed out of me to renew my hockey tickets. More $$$ for athletic administrators.

First news conference question: "How much will we be forced to give this guy when the time comes to get rid of him? One million? Two million?" Meaning, his contract had better not have a buyout clause! And, saying that ridiculous contracts are required to get the best talent is a joke.

I wish him the best. The University has certainly had it's problems, especially with the long, long substandard record for the football team. Maybe he's the guy to turn things around. I hope so.

How can you only interview one person and be impressed with how prepared they are? Who did you compare them to, the guy you just fired?
