Sandy is being shown the door!

Sandy is being shown the door! Post Rating (2 votes)



"I won't have to wear any pantsuits

again! See ya later, alligators...er...I mean...bears!"


Rumor has it that Sandy Barbour is being asked to step down as Athletic

Director of Cal post haste! Personally, I'm all for it!


If this occurs, I read it as not good news for Cal's football program. To me,
it could possibly mean the academia big shots and Deep Blue (wealthy

alums) have had enough. I think Dykes' hire and eventual first year coaching

performance in some (big or small) way has contributed to her leaving at

this time. Oh, there are other non-football factors I'm sure (like financing),

but let's face it Cal is in for a pretty rough up and coming football season.

Many of you fans may argue "Nye, Nye", but the Deep Blue is of opposite

mind.


So, let me be the first to say, "Goodbye Sandy!"

Go Bears

I would say that I'm astounded that anyone is surprised by this news, but then Cal fans have always had some strange need to convince themselves all is well.  You waste people's money over and over and you will eventually pay for it.

Dirks is terrible. He would have hired Ms. Barbour for her "diversity" characteristics. Financial disaster forced him to do what is politically incorrect. It took way too long.

SF Comical: H. Michael Williams to be interim AD Post Rating (4 votes)


I just read a two paragraph article in the SF Comical to the effect that the interim AD is going to be H. Michael Williams. According to the article he was a member of the class of 1982 and a member of our defunct wrestling team. He got an MBA from UCLA and is chairman of the UC Berkeley foundation.

While I have never heard of Williams before, I have high hopes that he will be a good choice. It will be infinitely better to have the perspective of an athlete whose sport was eliminated by Title IX as AD than to have an AD who wants to expand TitleIX, eliminate rugby and baseball, and feathers her nest with 15 deputy, associate, and assistant athletic directors.

The jury is still out on Dykes. If he can make a substantial improvement this year I would want to give him a third, but no job security until he puts a real winner on the field. In fact, winning the Big Game this year would get my support for giving him two more years.

And the most typi-CAL part of the whole thing?

We still lack the guts to fire her.  We just keep paying her to do some other BS job that doesn't need doing.

Cal will never change.  The new person won't be any better and we'll continue to waste taxpayer money on people that we refuse to fire.

It's football money that will be wasted unless and until bills come due that football money is inadequate to pay. I want to see the hierarchy of the athletic department trimmed to, say, five deputy, associate, and assistant athletic directors. We have a combined total of 28 men's and women's teams. That would be one worthless bureaucrat for every five teams (both men's and women's) instead of one for every two teams. We seldom have more than ten sports in season at the same time. Actually this would be more like one worthless bureaucrat for every two teams in season instead of two worthless bureaucrats for each team.

I think it is brilliant that they canned her but are forcing her to still work to collect that pay check. That way she is given the opportunity to resign if she is foolish enough to think anyone else would want her as their AD.

Maybe she can take over for  Bob Bockrath at Yucaipa Valley JC.
