The athletic department is living on borrowed time at the moment. They can't afford to have a losing basketball program. The BCS payouts are the only thing that has kept them from a total collapse the last couple years. Being realistic, you can't keep expecting the football program to get a BCS game year after year, they have done great things but in reality it's not sustainable every season.
The more I look back, the more I dispise Nancy Zimpher. She destroyed this program, and now I'd say rebuilding it back to the level it once was is going to be nearly impossible.
The whole thing is very sad.
