Subject: Re: Loyola an attractive place for a coach?

I don't know if I'd go so far as to say that the administration wants to win. If they do, than they don't have the first clue how to do it. It's not enough to hire a guy and tell him to win, or to take someone who won at Albany and expect him to just win here (to all of Lou's points).

I think all the other reasons for Loyola's attractiveness are valid. But the glaring inattractiveness is the empty stands. And no one has done a thing to put more butts in the seats. How do you convince a recruit to come there, when no one is there? And how do you convince a coach to come when no one is there?

I live in Annapolis now, and the people in my neighborhood support Navy basketball, even though they know it's not great basketball, they know that there's a better chance of watching a loss than a win, and they know that even if they won the conference they'd get their butts kicked in the first round. But they go, because it's local, it's college hoops, etc. Why can't Loyola do that? I think they can, they just have to make an effort.
