Another good hire. Used to providing entertainment to small div 3 crowds.

I mean... really? You guys know you have a major problem with your marketing and promotions. And this is the answer?

Not much experience, but we needed someone young for this position. Could end up being a Home Run.

IMO, fire in the belly, creativity, customer service orientation, and ability to develop effective relationships with all components the fan base are the keys to success in this position. Those factors matter more than length of prior experience or whether it was in D1 or D3 athletics. As with the MBB coaching selection, Willard is getting a late start and doesn’t have an M&P assistant yet (that position also vacated several months ago), so he has his work cut out. This is a critical hire given the trajectory of MBB attendance over the past several years, and I’m anxious to see what this young man can do.

Oakland's head of marketing is the Director of Game Day Experience and Fan Engagement, whose background is two years as a graduate assistant at OU and two years as a student working in the Athletics Department.

+1 Centre College is a private College strongly supported by its Alumni. Centre has quite a history and has held many cultural events. I am sure that an Oakland alum would not have any idea about culture or cultural events.

I dunno. I was able to find video of an OU alumni gathering. Seems they know how to have a good time:

does this mean the flydogs are done for?
In Greek mythology, the Titans were greater even than the gods. They ruled their universe with absolute power! Well that basketball court out there tonight, that's our universe. Let's rule it like Titans! (with apologies to coach boon)

If they are, he should be fired immediately. We love the Flyball Dogs!

If you were paying attention you would have noticed that attendance fell off a cliff when they stopped bringing in the Fly Dogs, even more than when they stopped bringing in Professor Titan and Sem Cycle (the uni-cyclist AND National Anthem on a saw guy). The winning stopped then too.

Maybe they could put the curs on the catwalks. That would enhance the excitement level. ;)

This could be a very good hire, BTW. He's young (which most of us are not) and might have insights into how to generate interest among the students. That's where the growth needs to come from.

Sem from Semcycle also played the National Anthem on a saw. Pretty cool. I couldn't find a video of him doing the National Anthem but did find him playing the saw here: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=jPG9igBXCc0 I did see a video of Semcycle performing at OU.
