Podcast: Fan Apathy and Grant Gunnell

Brad Allis

The podcast returns with a look Football Spring Practice. With the team coming off of an uninspiring season, the fan base seems to be mostly disinterested with the program. Is it just because of the lack of success, or do the issue run deeper.

On the second dog walking edition of the podcast I take a long look at just what other than wins and losses may be contributing to the lack of fan interest. 

I also look at what few reasons there are for optimism, take a deep dive into Grant Gunnell and a quick look at the rest of the offense.

I liked it. To answer your question, I care but not enough to renew. I hate the carpet bagger coaches that come into a community and have no interaction with the fan base, as all. It is obvious that KS doesn't care enough about being here, so the heck with it.

In reality Sumlin should have taken a sabbatical after his debacle at TAM. His record there sucked with good to great recruiting classes, and he should have stepped back with his 10 Million, well, probably 4 million after he settled with his divorced wife and attorneys and regrouped instead of taking the first offer to come along. What a joke, Arizona has a pieced together group of coaches most of whom have never worked with one another all playing out the string.

The fastest way for Arizona to get better is to get over another horrendous season and plan to get better with the right hire. Good luck with Dave Heeke and Robbins making the hire. They couldn't close the deal with the best candidate from Navy.

Color me not confident.

Glad you could mine some nuggets from my ramblings.

OH and "...ace recruiter who didn't bring in any ace recruits...", "...Cecil is still around and helping out..." (why on God's green earth is he not the DC or HC?!)

SO MANY NUGGETS!
"...even in the Mackovic era...", "...there was SOME support for Rich Rod...", "...Kevin Sumlin, atleast on paper...", "...take out one really good October by Kahlil Tate and this team has not been good in 4-5 years...", "...just bad enough to be totally uninteresting..", "...my level of optimism is low...", "...trying to carve out 5 wins..."(sorry, Brad, thats not gonna happen), "...hoping Marcel Yates was just that bad..." (he may have been but the guy they replaced him worth is way worse).

Early "Line of the Year" nomination from today's podcast went something like this, "I can enough about Arizona football to at least talk about it while walking the dog."

Nice work, Brad. Great listen on a Thursday afternoon.
