It's probably a good move long term for the program. Although, it's
going to take $$$$. But excuse me if I'm a little bit skeptical on their
argument that it's going to bring increased exposure to the programs.
Especially in the press. They've had great basketball teams over there for
a decade. National contenders with rosters filled with good local kids and they
get what, one or two articles a season written about them here and in the Trib?
They rarely even get their scores included in the "state colleges"
section. Even the photograph attached to this article is from a year ago!
What, none of the local papers could get a photographer to shoot any of the
current teams at home this year? Or even ask the SID for a current action shot?
How often does NCAA DII Dixie State get covered here. Probably not even as
often as the JC's. And they have a football team. So again, excuse my
skepticism that this is going to bring great media exposure.
