I will refute it. Caslen was fired. If you prefer to say he resigned that's fine. A huge step in the right direction. You bring back the most popular president at the University until we find a replacement. The football coach was fired and things are moving on a better direction by getting rid of Mus champAs the academic year ends, its hard to think of a lower point for the university.
Another lame athletic year. Football and men's basketball had absolutely terrible years and baseball was very mediocre and had the annual crap the bed trip to Hoover. Women's basketball is the only athletic program at the entire university that even sniffs elite status. Even our women's golf team, ranked #1 couldn't win the SEC and went into the NCAAs as the national #1 seed and didn't even make it to match play finishing in 12th place.
And on the University leadership side it has been a horrendous year. We currently have an interim Provost and interim President while leadership of USC (including the BOT) has become a total joke.
Under the direction of AD Ray Tanner, there simply is not currently a culture of winning and championship expectations across our athletic teams. You could see it in Kington's mid-game interview today....boldly making excuses on national tv because he knows its ok with his AD. Total embarrassment. I think its depressing.
As you stated the women's hoops team are a national power. The baseball team will be playing in the postseason unlike last year. Doesn't seem so bad to me.
