For those of you who are not fans of big-time college football, Les Miles while Coach of Louisiana State University averaged better than 10 wins per season (an amazing record), his teams won two SouthEast Conference championships, one National Championship and he was selected College Coach of the Year and, after a 2 win 2 loss start to this season, his twelfth, he was fired. Arguably, Les Miles was the greatest Head Coach in the history of LSU. Again, he was fired.
Then, you have our woebegotten JFNA CEO, without a win in seven years, who not only keeps his job with the apparent enthusiastic support of three successive Board Chairs; his contract was renewed.
Class Assignment: Les Miles/Jerry Silverman -- compare, contrast and try to explain.
Meanwhile, all of you understand why we find ourselves in such a pathetic mind-boggling circumstance. To paraphrase the New York Times Frank Bruni:
"(The JFNA of today)...has shown me many things that I never thought I'd see and others that I'd never seen so clearly, including the readiness of (the) power hungry...to trade dignity for relevance and swap pride (and values) for a place at the table..."Maybe that explains so much...
