    Congratulations Aggie Women...

    Unfortunately, BYU Women's BB is following the same path as BYU's FB and even Men's BB to some extent... BYU athletics is in steep decline. The revenue generating sports are circling the drain the past few years. and Tom Holmoe needs to be held accountable.

    We have been unable to gain membership in a P5 Conference, which has severely hurt our Recruiting. We have been unwilling to pay Market for solid and experienced coaching We've been unable to demonstrate any clout with P5 Commissioners and other P5 School ADs. And it is questionable whether our Athletic Leadership even has clout with out own Administration and BOTs.

    All of this will impact our ability to generate the revenue to be competitive.

    I lay this at the feet of our Athletic Director... These symptoms are not good signs for future Revenue Growth... In fact, they could spell major trouble for us in the future. What if we end up losing the renewal on our ESPN contract? Do we really think that Ticket sales will be able to hold? Will donations begin to fall. All of this needs a close analysis and perhaps some very tough personnel decisions that need to be made... soon. Just an opinion.
