    Asking for a friend: Is having a great new facility really going to make CDM a better recruiter?

    I am all for having top notch facilities, but I hope you have all mentally prepared yourselves for recruiting pretty much being the same after the new complex is completed as it is now. Hate to be the bearer of bad news......

        So sorry to hear this. I know exactly what you mean. We had a couple of foster kids that were doing really great with us for the 7 months we had them. Grades had drastically improved and they were extremely happy. Once DCF decided they needed to be adopted, bio-mom started manipulating anything she could to move them with somebody else, since we wouldn't let her see them when she was high, and wouldn't let her call to make them feel guilty if they didn't want to talk to her.

        Anyway, mom's new strategy was to convince them to be adopted by their paternal grandmother. The younger of the two didn't want to do it because she lived in a ****hole. But the mom convinced the older one and partially got the younger one to go along with it because she said she convinced them they would have almost no rules (which is true, and its the reason dad has been to prison so much).

        Of course, we didn't try to convince or pressure them one way or another because we thought it was wrong. Older one told DCF she would prefer to live with grandmother and that was it. That was two and a half years ago now and we have only been able to speak with them once since.

        That was really, really tough on us, I can't imagine what it would be like if they had been our own. My point is, these situations are fu**Ed. You will always be dad and the older they get the more they will start to see the truth about it all.

          I too am surprised that Sankey is commissioner when Fooley was available

          Who wouldn’t be impressed by the guy that has hired 5 football coaches in less than 20 years?

          Not to mention 4 women’s basketball coaches and Mike White

            Well, maybe a little. Probably not.

            But at least we are less of a dumpster fire for the next coach and hopefully we will be more attractive.

            Assuming the AD isn't dumpster diving again.

            Yeah, it seems to have really helped in 08 and now.

            The funny part is this includes a couple of Meyer classes and a decent class that Muschump somehow landed.

            I mean, Bammer is one thing. I knew we'd be behind them but not 800 million behind them. Let's look elsewhere. Surely the comparisons get better.

            Kentucky:

            2014 120mil stadium and football offices renovation

            [​IMG]

            2019 45 mil football training facility

            Locker room upgrade wasn't just paint, new carpet squares and led bulbs.

              The problem is the slower you do this-- here add a few dollars and see if things change next year. Didn't work? Try hiring two recruiting assistants, one is a HS basketball coach. Didn't work? ok hire some 70 year old dude who shtts himself-- the more it hurts.

              We are stuck trying to convince kids that we werent always a laughingstock program. We were elite back when they were 8 years old..... 6 years old.... 2 years old.

              The AD's office still isnt acting like there is an emergency of any sort. Just ho hum slap some paint on it and maybe we'll get around to something else later.

                Don't worry. I was told our $50mm all in one (but not really) was going to be THE BEST FACILITY IN COLLEGE FOOTBALL.

                It makes sense because it will house THE BEST COACH IN COLLEGE FOOTBALL. /Jboss81

                  Just checked - no ceiling tiles visible in those pics. Must be what attracts the recruits.

                    Lol... oddly Bammer can build their stuff in 10 months.

                    It takes us 7 months just to start bulldozing.

                      This will be their SECOND facility (or upgrade), while we haven't even STARTED our first!

                      Yeah, Foley's the great AD ever...but he ain't gettin into no damn arms races!!

                        :lmao2: The second upgrade since we ANNOUNCED in 2015. They had one in 06 and 09 too. :lmao2:

                        Dont worry. I was assured once ours arrives, if it ever does, it will be THE PREMIER facilty in the country.

                        If not, blame covid.
