18.Jun.2015 Todd Stansbury — Oregon State AD
I need you guys to sell me on this one.
To me it looks like OSU afraid to leave their comfort zone.
“Karen and I have spent a large part of our lives at Oregon State and we look forward to returning to Corvallis. Without a doubt, we will be Knights fans from the West Coast.”
I mean that could be a Riley quote…once he is fired from Nebraska.
I’m not for or against Stansbury…just confused. Why keep bringing guys back (Massari, Stansbury)? Seems like Massari would have been the better hire of those two since USCB was a more difficult job and there’s more continuity (e.g. Do we know if Stansbury and Andersen have ever even met?). I’m not against him. I don’t even know anything about him. It’s just puzzling since there’s a guy in Massari who seems equally qualified, based on the credentials I’ve read, and is already there. I also don’t like this idea of bringing back guys from the old guard. Is this a move to appease certain donors, or is it truly the best hire? Sell me.
