Sadly my fellow members of the Illini Nation, that is not a misprint. Was it not back in December that the News-Gazoo reported that the Football Guy would stay through the end of 2008 and groom his successor? What changed? The lousy men's basketball program that Guenther allowed to go to pieces under the mid-major LOYAL coach he hired? And of course, leave it to friendly East Central Illinois scribe Loren Tate to praise the move. Hey Loren, why is it that you treat Ron Guenther with kid gloves but waited until the very end to hammer my friend Neale Stoner? Shame on you!

This is just awful news on many fronts. First, it means that Bruce "Mid Major" Weber is as safe as kittens, despite taking a team to the NCAA title game and turning it into crap in just four years. Second, expect the Football Guy to renew the contract with WIND and its lame signal in Chicagoland. Third, more lousy marketing. Fourth, he'll probably renew that dumb football game in St. Louis with Missouri. I could go on and on.

But one bright spot-this blog will still be here to make everyone aware of how bad an Athletic Director Ron Guenther is for Illinois. As Warren Carter would say: "Board of Trustees-YOU IDIOTS!!!!"

Well, we can see the impact your blog has had. Looking forward to more delutional rantings.

The fact that you consider Neal Stoner a friend explains quite a bit. The guy stole money from the University and hired a coach that put the football prgram on probation. That's the integrity we're looking for.

Coach Guenther hired Ron Turner. It was under Ron Turner that we also found ourselves on probabation to the tune of a MAJOR violation for the Mason fiasco. Guenther had neither the balls to fight it nor the political clout to win a reduction in severity. No way that was a major violation.

Poor "Fire Ron Guenther". You mean Jim Phillips won't be the U of I AD in 2008?
