  1. Benson's Contract

    I was a McElroy guy. Fundraising was by far his biggest negative. You have to ask people to give you money, that is sadly a big part of the job. Dr. McElroy presided over the growth of the most successful athletics program in the America East. That athletic success was never translated into financial success. There was no GDAC until Benson got here. Other than that we have seen nothing but incompetence out of his reign. Mr. Benson does not have the experience or the personality to run a D1 athletic program. After five years here all he has to show is that he created a fundraising group that is mostly funded by forcing people to donate money in order to pay for their overpriced season tickets. Time for a change at the top. Let President Rodriguez know that we can do better and we expect better.
  2. Benson was NOT responsible for either of those pros. They were both in the works before he got the position. GDAC is his.
  3. What is the situation with Benson's contract? I assume he was given the full 5 years when he started. The five years is up in August 2019.
  4. Women's Basketball 2018-2019

    Yes - she has to sit this year out.
  5. Football, athletics resources (moved)

    Opportunity was there - the money and support of the president was not
  6. Who is going to pony up the $1 million plus that GG will be owed on the last 4 years of his contract? Sadly - not going to happen.
  7. 2018-19

    or the email is sent this evening - 7:25pm according to my inbox
  8. that was a stinking pile of $iena anyone still looking forward to the home opener?
  9. It is still deductible - it is just that the standard deduction is much higher so many fewer people will itemize. They have already been accepting donations at the same levels as last year. Let’s see what comes out on Monday.
  10. What “exemption status change” are you talking about? The new tax law has zero to do with accounting on the part of Athletics. Tickets should be on sale for the general public by now. The first home game is a little more than 3 months away. Benson has been a bust on professionalizing this part of the Department. The schedule has been out for months, the deadline to renew should have been set so any nonrenewed seats can go to new buyers. This is the time to sign up groups for games and sell new season tickets. It’s not accounting, it’s incompetence and ineptitude.
  11. Team is at 12 players now, including the 2 incoming frosh. 3 schollies open - we are losing a lot in Mac and Emma. I expect Coach Mullen to have this team ready to compete this year. The job will be much more difficult than it was for Coach Mac. There is no Imani Tate or even Jess or T-Jo. There are a lot of very good players left and it appears that only Heather and Chyanna will graduate next year. The future is bright.
  12. Cape Cod traffic should not be a big issue on Saturday morning. Friday evening traffic on the other hand should be wicked messy.
  13. What do you see on her Twitter? The only thing I saw was a retweet congratulating her sister Madison who committed to Bryant.
