So Marie Tuite is not going to pursue the open AD position at SJS
Because Gene Bleymaier has the job nailed down
For the cave dwellers and Kool Aid bathers, GB was fired as the AD at Boise State for his lack of institutional control after violations across several programs
There’s baggage and then there’s a caravan of it
From Boise President Bob Kustra: “After a careful management review and discussions about the future of the program, I determined that new leadership will be needed as we commit ourselves to the highest level of attention and enforcement of NCAA standards, and also continue to move Boise State athletics to the next level of success.”
Boise showed its colors — following the rules being the golden rule — rather than ignoring reality because of fame and fortune
SJS is now doing the same
Bleymaier has been successful, there is no question
But at what cost?
Does SJS desire to sell its soul for the glimmer of success?
Cause Dick Vermeil says so
Actions have consequences
