Leadership and Integrity?

Isn’t this the same award that was bestowed upon Gene Smith in 2008, the Ohio State AD? …and Gene Smith’s predecessor as O$U AD in 2003, amid the Clarett scandal?

Integrity? Sure. I guess it’s the thought that counts.

I don’t really have anything against Curley, just sort of think that running an athletics program with one of the all-time icons of college football (one who has kind of made it what it is today everywhere, and certainly here) makes it kind of like running a company like one I worked for that had $10 million in expenses and $50 million in revenue. Kind of hard to tell if we were doing anything right, we had a great product by the tail.

However, I like that he stuck with ED for so long. Kind of practicing what we preach.

What? Cling onto mediocrity? :wink:
