This just gives further credence to the suggestion that Tom Jurich is one of the best, if not the best, ADs in the nation. This will be the third sport that has gone from nothing status to championship level (also women's bball and baseball) under his leadership, to say nothing of the success of other sports, like track, golf, and tennis.
TJ is the greatest AD in the country. It's a shame his only bad hire had to come in the highest profile of NCAA sports. Maybe Strong can get this thing turned around sooner rather than later. Go Cards!
