I'm a U of A alum, 1998. I experienced the national championship as a junior and I can't believe what has happened to our basketball program. I don't know how Livengood still has a job. Unfortunately I'm not a big booster, otherwise I would have done everything in my power to force him out. He has totally botched the basketball hire, no thanks to Lute Olson who stayed too long and hurt his legacy (JoePa and Bowdon, are you listening?). How could he not have secured Calipari by now? He could have had him instead he let Kentucky swoosh in and get him. This quiet search has not worked in our favor (meanwhile, we have no recruits). I like Pitino, but he's always looking for a better gig and he's older. Are we going to have another 75 year old coach collecting a paycheck in beautiful Tucson? I can't believe we wouldn't go after a younger guy like Jay Wright or Jamie Dixon? Livengood is a terrible leader and needs to be removed. He's done nothing to elevate U of A into the upper echelon of college sports.
Now, as a huge college football fan, if I were Mike Stoops I'd be salivating at having the opportunity to make Football the #1 spot at U of A. SO SHOULD LIVENGOOD! Which sport brings in more money into a school? Football! What sport, if you are good enough enough gets on national television more? Football! Now if only the PAC-10 and the new commish get out of this awful Fox Sports contract that gets no East coast coverage, maybe, just maybe U of A will have the national exposure we all want.
