Funny how the AD is always the last person to figure out when a football coach should go. The rest of us have known for some time…

I remember back in ‘04, when the U of A thought it would be a great idea to nearly double ticket prices for long time season ticket holders…following a 2-10 season. It was at that moment that I knew this whole thing wasn’t going to work out.

The U of A hasn’t had a decent football program for roughly 20 years now. I hope the next guy can get it together and return the Cats to bowl contention (I mean bowl games that actually mean something and aren’t just filler)
