That Was a Thud
« on: February 26, 2017, 04:03:23 pm »

Lady Backs lose home finale vs Auburn.

And no one noticed or cared.

No hope on the horizon.

End it.

Brutal. The experiment failed. Time to make a move, Jeff.

The big question is will JL end this experiment next month, or will he wait till next season? He waits till next year, which will likely be worse than this year, you risk causing more damage to the program than what's already been done.

I care and there are many who care.  Look at what has been done at Texas A&M, South Carolina and Mississippi State with good coaches.  We have suffered with mediocre coaches since Gary left.  It is time to hire a real coach.

I would include Vic Schaefer (unrealistic, probably), Johnnie Harris, and Sytia Messer, and maybe the Associate HC at FSU, Lance White, on a shopping list, along with the other names in this thread - minus Matt Daniel, who is not having success at Marshall. They are 4-12 in conference this year - no thanks.

I think it is funny Dykes talked about missing free throws.........in the two losses recently against Kentucky and Tennessee the  team shot 7 total  free throws in the two games..our offense is so non existent other teams don't even need to foul us.  Get an offense before you worry about missing free throws...

Rueck is awesome, but he's not leaving OSU. It's home, his alma mater, etc. His dream job.

I think Porked posted that link because you quoted his post about giveaways, Hogtired. That's what he thought you were asking about.

The more I keep reading about FSU Lance White, the more I like him.

He is from the state of Texas and before coming to FSU under Sue he worked for Marsha Sharpe at Texas Tech. He is known for his defense and recruiting.

I agree; especially since it is hopeless. For 2017 we are getting 2 players and likely neither could get a scholarship at another SEC college; one because of injury and the other is not listed as one of ESPN's top 467 players. And, for 2018, already Christyn Williams has made a comment indicating she will not sign with the UofA.  It may be possible to sign Yo'myris Morris, but so few fans attending games, I wouldn't count on it.

I am certain we can get some coach for $25,000 per year and others will volunteer maybe as graduate assistants if given free tuition. So what if we don't win a game.  We can save $1 million a year.

You mean women's sports in general?
It's long past time to demand that women's programs become fiscally responsible or be ended.  The damaging effects of Title IX need to be reversed.

You two "male hogs" need to stop wasting your time posting on the Women's sports blog as you obviously have no interest in it.  I know that women's basketball fans from Connecticut, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas A&M, Mississippi State, Kentucky, Notre Dame, Stanford, Washington, Texas, Baylor, Oklahoma, Iowa State, etc. would strongly disagree with you.  Arkansas fans do not support anything but a winner - just look at the men's program at Arkansas.  We are averaging about half the fans that South Carolina women are averaging in spite of having a very good season.  When Gary Blair was here we routinely had over 5,000 at a game - not kids day either.  We would have close to 10,000 for Tennessee and had 14,000 for the WNIT championship game against Wisconsin.  Fire JD and bring on a coach who is a winner and see what happens.

What you are incapable of understanding is that first there was women's sports before Title IX and second that women don't have near the interest in sports as men do and men have less interest in women's sports than men's sports.  It should be up to each college to determine which men and women's sports they wish to have. Your silly belief that men and women have the same interest and to the same extent has been disproved in every valid study.

I'm not really sure how this devolved into a Title IX debate, but here we are! So I'll mention two things: one the question of title ix seems to hinge upon what you believe the purpose of college athletics is--Is it to turn a profit? Or it is part of the overall collegiate mission? Because if it were based on profit schools would pretty much just have football teams. But do programs like men's baseball have a place even if they don't break even? Men's basketball?

Two: schools do have the right to choose which sports they offer! They just have to provide roughly equal opportunities for both genders. But they can provide those in any sport they choose to, its just that most major schools have a pretty standard list which includes women's basketball. But Title IX does not force anyone to have a women's basketball program, it just says that if a school provides athletic opportunities to men (as part of its collegiate mission), then it must also provide access for female athletes. Which seems pretty cool to me!

Blanche,

What you're ignoring in your point is the demand for men's and women's sports is not the same.  As Logic points out, there is ample research suggesting many of the sports opportunities that exist for women were NOT created from the demand by women, rather the balancing act that Title IX requires between men's and women's sports. 

I agree with some of the points you make - most college sports - those not college football or men's basketball - are likely money losers.  And in fact, there exists evidence suggesting that amount of voodoo economics in play when it comes to the accounting of college sports makes it hard to determine (with any reasonable degree of accuracy) just how much (if any) college football and basketball actually makes in revenue.

What is largely wrong with college athletics is expecting the student body of pick up the cost of athletics with far too high student fees and charges.  If it were not for Title IX, many of the sports offered by colleges and universities would no longer be offered.  ...more on this later...

I would certainly be willing to see more of logic's research about the demand for women to have sports of their own play. However that seems like a chicken and egg situation a little bit. And of course if there wasn't enough demand there wouldn't be a team for that particular sport--and yet it seems like based on the number of women who participate in sports at all collegiate levels (many times for no or little scholarship monies) that there is certainly a demand out there.

Actually at Arkansas all the sports money comes from revenue generated thanks to deals with SEC Network et. al, ticket prices, and foundation donations. Indeed the only money a student at Arkansas pays for sports is if they buy a ticket to said sporting event--in this case it would be men's basketball and football. Students pay fees that go towards intramural sports, but none of our actual sports teams are supported by student tuition. In this situation sports actually makes us money because some students want the SEC atmosphere for football games, but didn't want to go to the SEC school in their home state (this is usually a Texan student situation).
