Friarfan,Yes,Mr.Tranghese completely "lost his cool" as reflected in his remarks to Mr Weis and in remarks at the BE meeting.He then apparently "vanished" from public view.Do you really believe that this ACC expansion is the worst thing that has happened to NCAA during Mr. Tranghese's lifetime?
So the ACC wanted to conduct their busuness in private,hey Friarfan,not only is that the normal way that American business is conducted it is perfectly legal,notwithstanding the frivilous lawsuit brought against BC,Miami and the ACC by certain BE schools.
Hey,I understand that he has Providence ties Friarfan,but hey get a grip.In my opinion he acted in a totally unprofessional way.If he had worked for me I would have "fired his butt". I will gladly repeat any part of my response that you do not understand.Comments?
Friend, rather than repeating anything you've already said, please answer my basic question: What did you expect him to do?
Let me ask you as well whether Mr. Swofford distinguished himself with his leadership skills when he totally misjudged support within his own league for the expansion plan that he proposed? Or when he dragged a once proud league through the mud with one foolhardy proposal after another? Is this how he does business in private? Or was it when he"led" the ACC to a "solution" of 11 schools & NO post-season championship game when the goal had been 12 members with a post-season game? Is this when he was "part of the solution" rather than a part of the problem? This "solution" meets none of the stated goals & objectives & reduces the revenue for every conference member - including Miami. Only VA Tech will benefit from this.
Oh, yes, I forgot . . . he did all of this in a "cordial & gentlemanly manner." In the real world, failing to achieve any of the goals & objectives for which you were hired is what gets you fired. And competent leaders are not threatened by a little honest show of emotion as that which we saw coming from Mr. Tranghese.
