Ok then...

...why did your dd sign her NLI to play here?

She must have taken a tour of the Park escorted by either Schmidt, Miller or Heidi and seen the crappy UHall makeshift clubhouse and if she was looking at any other P5 school you both would have known where UVA stood both competitively and in coaching competence.

What a lot of casual fans of OS don't seem to fully grasp is that Title IX creates a huge artificial demand for sports like this that there aren't nearly enough competent bodies to fill both in coaching staffs and players. Given the state of the program and facilities when CL signed Jo I don't think he had a ton of other resumes to review. A lot of college coaches are both horrible coaches and people, what ever else may be said about this staff I do find them to be decent hard working people.

I couldn't stand to be stuck sitting next to a parent in travel ball who did nothing but complain about the coaches but at least they were paying their dues, not getting their kid favorable admissions standards, all benefits associated with being a college athlete and MONEY to be here. Guess what, you don't get all that and also get to be the AD.

Speaking of AD's, we now have one that played a women's sport at a very high level where the coaching and recruiting element is absolutely crucial to success. If Carla agrees with you then you've got nothing to worry about since she didn't sign Jo and therefore doesn't need to justify buying her out and moving on. We also have a $10m new facility to go with a top 3 public university in an picture postcard college town to attract coaching talent.

What I'm certain Carla wont do is take the pulse of the Sabre community before deciding on the future direction of the program.
