And for the thousandth time, maybe it will sink into the skulls of people sooner or later.... you can credit the boogie man Jeff Long for the increase in donations to "record levels". Actually, every year should be a "record level" or you're going backwards.
Anyone who thinks Pederson is an asset to donations needs their head examined.... and that's being kind. You can say the same about hiring coaches. Probably the two most important aspects of the job.
If you are directing that towards me, I'm not calling SP an asset to donations.
I'm just not prepared to blame SP until I see someone present some evidence to show that Pitt fans aren't just cheap.
And speaking to the larger issue: I believe there are enough legitimate things for which one can criticize SP that you don't need to whine and moan about an extension that, at the time, made perfect sense.
Nuttingberg doesn't care if she loses 50 in a row. HE JUST DOESN'T CARE ABOUT ATHLETICS
I was waiting for you to chime in.
Thank you for yet another highly comprehensive post. Your "Nuttinberg" moniker is so clever.
i don't know what we're yelling about and loud noises. anchorman brick
I'm not whining and moaning about an extension. I already said that I like Agnus, but she needs to be replaced. My fear is who will pick the replacement.
I get tired of the donations have been acceptable under SP mentality. They're not acceptable and the only reason they are where they are is because of the guy that came before SP.
Yes, Pitt fans are cheap. It's why you can't have a guy who is despised by so many leading the charge. Also, I'm pretty sure we didn't set a record last year so you can infer that they dropped if you're looking for evidence.
Donations have remained flat. he's done nothing in 5 years to make them significantly better.
the rest of the categories - stevie p has sucked.
carol sandt even sourced and basically hired the new volleyball coach. my feeling is b/c they dont trust stevie p to make any coaching hires.
there is no other explanation how coaches like Lux remain employed.
butts in the seats at football games? stevie p is a collasal failure - even from the tickets he "sold" - that's not a matter of pitt fans being cheap - that's pitt fans not supporting the product.
again, stop blaming the fans. its a freakin business you nimrod. if you can't market, can't sell, can't merchandise and can't make it attractive - then get the F out of college sports. you don't belong.
Yeah, because Nordenberg doesn't have more important things to worry about.
Even when PItt was going 11-1 and contending for national championships, Pitt stadium was not being filled consistently.
I suppose that was SP's fault too?
irrelevant. try for once to think about 2013 and not about 1976 when college football was just a fraction of the popular sport that it is today. apples vs oranges.
also, really? you are blaming Caz M for not filling the stadium back then? lets see any AD in America fill the stadium against the 70s Steelers playing down the road. Pitt was a victim of horrible timing if the truth be told.
