Welcome to The Weekly Audible, the first of what will hopefully be many articles focused on the feedback and commentary we get regarding the articles and news published on College AD. We’re almost ashamed it took us this long to realize that the chatter we see in our Twitter feed and inbox is just as important as the articles themselves.
So, without further ado, here is what you had to say this week.
“Wow. That’s a game changer. #Priorities” – Former Baylor Head Baseball Coach, Steve Smith, @HardBallCoach34
“@HardBallCoach34 @collegead I’m sure it’s to raise money for more baseball scholarships.” – High School Coach, Ben Basden, @CoachBasden
“@HardBallCoach34 @collegead Priorities?
1. Money 2. Money 3. Money 4. Money 5. Money 6. Money 7. Money #9,0000, Athletes” – Former Kentucky Baseball Coach, Keith Madison, @KeithMadison32
“Who is putting the Athletes interests FIRST?” – Former College and Professional Women’s Basketball Coach, Lin Dunn, @Coach_Dunn
“I thought TopConnect was great. I really enjoyed listening to the head coaches talk about their career paths, how they worked themselves up to becoming head coaches and the challenges they faced during their times with their teams. I also gained a lot of insight from the AD panel, specifically what they are looking for in candidates and how they conduct their interviews and some of the pitfalls applicants fell into while they were interviewing. Top Connect was great experience. Look forward to seeing where this goes and staying in touch with everyone I met.” – Email from anonymous FCS football coach
“How about polling the current student body??” – TCU Facilities/Operations Intern, @Selje3
“Well that’s dumb” – @CBBNewsCenter
“@CBBNewsCenter @collegead @AuburnTigers Know the rules Get better security. 100K would buy a lot of books.” – Wichita State Nursing Instructor, Patty Beamer, @PattyBeamer
“Damn, don’t see Yankton in there…. ” – Assistant Sports Editor at the Yankton (South Dakota) Press, Jeremy Hoeck, @jhoeck
