Can either of you guys share some of the things they have talked about? I'm curious...
I didn't see the email but apparently it said his wife is sick and is receiving treatment somewhere in Massachusetts.Curious what the school email said about Woodward’s whereabouts. I happen to know from my sources the truth, but haven’t shared. That said, I very much dislike the TCS stuff. I think they make me angrier with every post. I think some topics are interesting, but giving pet names to people makes them appear as a sophomoric, completely bias and makes the entire thing feel like they just have an ax to grind.
Making fun of the stuff on top of a new building, that young, environmentally concerned prospective students may actually find interesting is so tone deaf because our dear athletics program is getting destroyed. Insinuating we’ll become UConn West Hartford, even though UConn WH just pulled out a few years ago is stupid. It positions me to wonder why they even went to the school in the first place. And trust me, I left my city 5 hours away to come to UHart bc it was a D1, connected program and I got to intern in athletics. But I stayed at the school because of my dear friends, most of which (outside of two of them) didn't go to any athletic events. I did not stay at UHart because Lebo was a decent coach. I did not stay because baseball won one or two games a year back then. If I had not had good friends, I would have left after a year.
Athletics lucked into Gal, and into letting him grow as a coach. He was bad his first few years, honestly. Because he had time to grow, that has grown the school’s visibility to the country rather than the region. But that doesn’t make us hot shit. And to dump all over the way the whole school is run makes the whole school look like a joke. We should want more kids to come, not just more voices pointing to declining enrollment and money being pissed away. If they said that about either of their two normal career locations, wherever they are, whatever they are, I’m sure that wouldn’t help recruit great talent to make their companies better.
Give me specific, attributed, impactful stories, documents and facts and I’ll listen. Until then I’m always one step away from clicking the block button, but haven’t on the off chance they break something interesting (which tends to happen better on here anyways). They’re not tackling college sports, they’re getting off on whatever “atrocity” has been levied against them.
I’m also interested to know their investment in the school and athletics. What have they donated? Are they season ticket holders? Outside of the successful programs, do they have a clue?
Been holding that in for a few weeks, glad someone finally asked lol.
Summed it up perfectly my friend. And yes, that’s where Greg has been the last year or so. Did they walk back all their absent president comments at that point I wonder?I didn't see the email but apparently it said his wife is sick and is receiving treatment somewhere in Massachusetts.
I do agree with you that at times they come across as bullying meat heads and say some really dumb things, such as the UConn WH and the name calling is pretty pathetic. I also think they try to report things, such as saying that Hillyer College does not exist anymore without all of the facts.
It's also sad that they are the only ones around here that are talking about this, but at this point they are just yelling to yell to a few hangers on and themselves.
Maybe.The biggest FU to the current administration is if the the men’s team goes back to the tournament. It would look so embarrassing on their part.
If I were a plaintiff's employment lawyer, I'd feel great!We’re grasping at straws here. I sincerely hope everyone can look in the mirror if they are in a position of leadership. “Hey, you’re gonna have to bury your spouse soon, we suggest you just leave rather than take FMLA” - how would you feel about that?
I don't think this will be the last.The men's lacrosse team is withdrawing from America East competition in the spring because they don't have enough players to meet the conference's requirements
The University of Hartford's Department of Athletics leadership, in collaboration with coaching staff, has made the difficult decision to withdraw the University of Hartford men's lacrosse team from America East Conference competition for this coming season. The team does not have a sufficient...www.hartfordhawks.com
What confuses me is what sort of walk-on tryouts they had. I find it incredibly hard to believe they couldn’t convince former hs lax scrubs in the student body to try out and have them on the team w/o scholly. It may have looked ugly as sin team performance wise, but something doesn’t add up that “there’s not enough players.”So much for the plan of getting students to pay full tuition to play Division 3 lacrosse when you can't even come close to getting the necessary players for D1.
