Benign neglect is defined as an attitude or policy of ignoring an often delicate or undesirable situation that one is held to be responsible for dealing with.
Yes, that’s a photo of Tom Bowen and the San Jose State men’s basketball program in the dictionary below the definition.
Basketball coaches are being dropped right and left but no, not at San Jose State, now back to the future known as JC U.
28-82 and one win in WAC games, well, that’s cause for inertia.
These enchanted records
2005-06… 6-25…2-14 WAC (8th of 9)
2006-07… 5-25…4-14 WAC (8th of 9)
2007-08… 13-19…4-12 WAC (8th of 9)
2008-09… 13-17…6-10 WAC (7th of 9)
2009-10… 14-17…6-10 WAC (7th of 9)
2010-11… 17-16…5-11 WAC (8th of 9)
2011-12… 9-23…1-13 WAC (8th of 8)
and it’s more, yawn and more who gives a shit from TB who will probably hand out another extension.
No freshman-sophomore or junior-senior banquets FOR THE PLAYERS, well, it’s never been ABOUT THE PLAYERS.
Players leaving because they are sick and tired of losing, well, it’s never been ABOUT THE PLAYERS.
Just like Chuckie Bell and his lavishing contracts on his buddies Johnson and Barnes, SJSU continues to be a personal fiefdom employment agency because, well, it’s never been ABOUT THE PLAYERS.
Being the laughing stock of Bay Area basketball is the result because, well, it’s never been ABOUT THE PLAYERS.
Benign neglect because, well, it’s never been ABOUT THE PLAYERS.
Tom Bowen’s allegiance is to his clan, his guys. That triumphs what he is supposed to achieve in his job as the San Jose State AD.
His culture of champions mantra is and always has been simple catchy BS.
His omerta of late tells us everything.
Tom Bowen won’t even rearrange the deck chairs on the Titanic, let alone call the captain on to the carpet. No, the blood oath to DeLaSalle supersedes common respect to everyone connected to the men’s basketball program but his chosen basketball saviour.
To SJSU President Mohammad Qayoumi:
Your Office of the President personal page at the SJSU site contains this quote “The tremendous opportunities and boundless possibilities of SJSU are only limited by our imagination. I look forward to working with talented students to ensure they have a rich and rewarding college experience and to prepare them for future success.”
Take action so that the SJSU basketball student-athletes enjoy tremendous opportunities and boundless possibilities, ensuring a rewarding college basketball experience.
FIRE TOM BOWEN NOW for benign neglect to the student-athletes on the men’s basketball team.
FIRE TOM BOWEN YESTERDAY for benign neglect to the student atyhletes on the men’s basketball team.
Do it FOR THE PLAYERS.
It’s ABOUT THE PLAYERS.
