I am not sure Pekarek vs. Raut, but for the other, coaches don't like drama around their teams. It's called the reverse mama.

I agree (as Ace drops the mic and walks away . . . ).

But seriously, there are several games like this every year, and have been every year for the past 25. It's disheartening, and it explains the lack of fan response. Good fans will stick with you through thick or thin, but they expect a little "thick" every now and again. We just haven't had that (Glenn Batemon notwithstanding).  Perhaps it's because there are so few fans, but the Administration does absolutely nothing to excite or engage their fans (hiring security guards to control their movements at games doesn't count).

Yes, a new facility would presumably build some fan excitement. But with the current Athletic Administration in place, I'm not sure. "The fans" or even  the concept of fans, has been missing from this program for a long time. I hate to say it, but the game day experience at Rose Hill this year is not notably different from that when I was an undergrad, decades ago.

I can only imagine how folks working at other Athletic Departments must view their counterparts at Fordham. "You're under NO pressure to put fans in the seats?" "You don't have to do ANY dedicated athletic fundraising?" Must be nice, but of course the Fordham folks are working at a dead-end program.

One almost expects to find the Athletic Department listed in the University Catalogue under the heading "After-School Activities".
