What is that Jesse Ventura quote in The Predator ? It applies to FT : "He's dug in deeper than an Alabama tick. "No other football coach could survive a 1-10 season followed by a 7 game losing streak ended by eking out a win over one of the weakest teams in the country and obviously the worst in the conference. In place after place they are firing the football coaches even where they are adequate but not successful enough.

Crunch time is over Franks resignation announcement will come after the Colgate game.

Would they really continue this believing another year of scholarship players will prove us all wrong. I unfortunately think the answer may be......yes!  Confused  Mad

Since his contract is up for renewal, the AD will have to make a decision.  I suspect that, in the eyes of the administration, Frank's only  negative is the recent W-L record. His positives are his strong relationships with major alumni donors, his longevity and the stellar off-field behavior of his players.

In the end, I suspect that Frank will be given a one year extension. Frank will then conduct a mild shake-u of is his offensive staff.

Frank can't shake up his staff as gainfully employed coaches aren't leaving to work for Frank for one year.  He is stuck with who he has.

From his demeanor on the sideline, Frank looks like a totally beaten down man both physically and mentally.  I certainly think it is time for a new coach who can bring renewed energy and a different voice to the program.

I wish nothing but the best for Coach Tavani, and I would like nothing better than to see him win these last two games.

Winning at Andy Kerr is usually a long shot in up years. It's really unlikely this year . Beating a strong Lehigh team is probably off the chart - even though it's a home game.Also although they peaked last year Colgate is still formidable.

By delaying the dismissal of the coach for several years, the school now has a bit if a conundrum.  What do they do if he wins (by some miracle) both remaining games?  What if he loses both (likely)?  What if he wins one of the remaining two and it is Lehigh (remotely possible)?  If anyone in the administration has a scintilla of sanity or objectivity, they would say time for Frank to step down and become Coach Emeritus, name the practice field after him and let him be the head fund raiser for football.  

Let's honor him for turning the program around in the dark days of Arthur Rothkopf, winning championships and being an all around good guy.

Wow

EASTON, Pa. - Lafayette announced that it will be engaging a consulting firm to conduct a review of the athletic program and make recommendations on improving the College's competitiveness in the Patriot League.

"We will conduct a thorough review of our intercollegiate athletics program and develop precise recommendations for a shared strategic direction that ensures the athletic program's resources are aligned with the mission and goals of the institution," said Bruce McCutcheon, director of athletics.

A committee made up of staff, faculty, and trustees is being formed to work with the consultant. The project, which will begin this month and conclude next April, will include interviews with athletics personnel, College administrators, faculty, students, trustees, and other internal and external constituents. It will benchmark the scope, costs, and outcomes of Lafayette's athletic program with programs at other Patriot League and Division I FCS private institutions.

The committee will make recommendations to the President of the College, Alison Byerly. "I look forward to hearing the committee's recommendations about how we can best use our resources and commitment to develop outstanding student-athletes, and to be successful competitors in the Patriot League," said Byerly.

Lafayette, a charter member of the Patriot League, fields teams in 23 sports in NCAA Division I athletics. Some 540 students, about 22 percent of Lafayette's student body, participate in varsity athletics each year.

Worth posting twice.

Your reputation for veracity, already on shaky ground, is at stake here, my friend. Sorry, the trip to the bank with your info is on hold.  Wink

Consulting firms and "strategic reviews" at many schools usually point to sports getting cut. Won't be football, but other teams may be in the spotlight.

Frank will pressure Bruce and talk his way into the job in 2017... Bruce will cave... Frank will get a three-year extension... watch...

Had the same thought, but the wording "make recommendations on improving the College's competitiveness in the Patriot League..." gives me hope.

Anyone want to change your vote with the announcement on the new "competitiveness committee"? You think this helps or hurts the chances of change going into next season?

Or is BillS right and we'll get an announcement after Colgate... Rolling Eyes
