win,lose & Drew: No more Sonny days
It's the end of an Era. Sonny Lubick was, without a doubt, one of the classiest coaches in all of college football. He put the CSU program on the map, gave the university something they could be proud of, and gave young men an education, both on and off the field. Apparently that doesn't mean much in Ft. Collins anymore. A new athletic director feels the need to leave his mark on a football program that, until Lubick, had not known much success. It's unfortunate. Lubick showed CSU loyalty many, many times, turning down multiple job offers through the years. And now CSU has chosen to show zero loyalty in return. It's the way of the world, I suppose, but don't you wish that Lubick's career could have ended differently. Why aren't coaches, who have served their schools successfully for long periods, given tenure like professors are? Why is it easier to get rid of Lubick than it is Ward Churchill? Somehow it doesn't seem right.
