There is so much going on (very serious problems)at UR this academic year regaring building names, equity, racism, etc that athletics is just shadowed by real deep rooted problems.I have for some reason been thinking about this some for the past couple weeks and I am not convinced UR is committed to excellence in sports(primarily thinking of Basketball and Football). From and outsiders view it feels like the powers to be are fine with "just good enough". Just good enough facilities to keep the conference happy. Just good enough records to keep donors giving. From my perspective, Mooney is doing exactly what he was hired to do. Don't tarnish the name and be just good enough to be acceptable to most people. Now for those that are more fan than alum its a tough pill to swallow but at this moment it is what it is...just good enough
I wonder when Randolph-Macon's coach Josh Merkel will make the move to D1. He was D3 National Coach of the Year and has a great record there.
