From ESPN.com's Mark Kriedler, in the aftermath of Rick Neuheisel's "victory" over the NCAA-
This is also a man who will be running another major college football program. Because Rick Neuheisel, generally speaking, winds up winning a bunch more games than he loses.
There is no vindication here for college sports, put it that way. The college game, so much higher-stakes than the highest-stakes NCAA basketball pool could ever be, now pivots almost solely on the concepts of W-L, bowl participation and attendance. Neuheisel, again speaking generally, delivers on all fronts.
Ahhh the dictates of the game-win, and the rest will follow. This creates a lot of problems, ones that can be mitigated with more active and intelligent leadership from athletic directors, coaches, current players, the media, and the NCAA.
