This pisses me off. Buried on the third page of the sports section is the bad news. Our men's and women's swimming coach got poached by Ohio State to be their women'sswimming coach. Wisconsin hired our women's soccer coach two years ago.
This pisses me off because it's about money. There is no reason to lose good coaches to other programs in our own league in any sport. It's a commitment to winning issue. Ohio State is willing to pay off a diving coach to win, and we just let it happen because we're cheap. We have one of the most successful women's soccer programs in the nation, and we let Wisconsin poach our coach? That's total BS.
I can live with not winning, but I get upset when I see other teams that are more committed to winning than Penn State is. I know, it's swimming who cares? Well, we only pay our football coach $500,000 grand a year. If he wasn't 82 and totally committed to Penn State in an almost irrational way, whose to say he wouldn't be the next coach at Indiana?
