The public perception on him has gone up and down, and it really depends on who you ask, but I think everyone (even Spaniolo) can agree that he can not afford to let this project fail .... just no way, he made the committment to it, the first real committment to a project that he gave, he just cant afford for it to fail .... not after the hall of flags incident, the raising of tuition, and everything else .... I think he has done a good job, I dont like the new colors, but it is not like UTA was a HUGE success before, so trying something new is better than just sitting there ... Hopefully we will get some good news about the arena ...
