Feelings Shifting on Neinas' role for our Conference

14

First things first. I think this conference needed a stern, cut and dry decision maker to follow up the mess Beebe left behind. Neinas has been refreshing in that regard. We all know I've been a big proponent of the 10 now, 12 later plan. To me, its two-fold: preserving max funds (to be competitive among other leagues) with our current tier 2 contract supplementing where the tier 1 lacks due to other renegotiations, plus it gives us time to get it right as far as adding #11 and #12, though at this point I think that's essentially Cinci and Louisville. I also think the 10 teams playing together help build relationships between institutions (i.e. more ADs in booths at halftimes with all ADs vs the former split scheduling helps get everyone on similar pages). Anyway, the sentiment in this article I think I agree with. Neinas may be starting to over-step his bounds and speaking for a whole too much with his 'just stay at 10 public talk'. He also needs to either stay quiet to preserve some dignity among the conference if he knows not everyone agrees with the position. I think staying at 10 is crucial to his tenure since he IS serving on an interim basis. Leaving open the other two slots gives the next guy the opportunity to work with the conference membership to get it right. Rather than have a guy who fills a roll for (for the sake of a number) 10 months setting up a situation for everyone else to deal with as he heads back to his sunny AZ retirement house or something.
