Really, you're ok with a guy in a 2nd tier sport at a 2nd tier school running what should be THE preeminent sports power in the NCAA into the ground? (I know he's made UT alot of $$$$)
The only reason Doods became AD was because he was in the NCAA enforcement division during the late 70's early 80's. Why do you think SMU got the death penalty and UT got off scot free? UT was just as dirty as SMU and this comes from a long time Longhorn fan.
Other than that Dodds had no business running a prestigous program such as the Longhorns. Since you asked the question, tell me what were Dodds qualifications at the time he was hired?
K-State is a major university? We have a different definition of what a major university AD is, obviously.
