30.Aug.2012 Off Kilter Thought Regarding Nicholls State
A lot of people are blaming Bob D, and I think rightfully so since the agreed upon date to call this game was Thursday. That means he could have told the N. State AD, "I hear ya, but let's wait until tomorrow to officially decide."
Question is, why didn't he?
Is is conceivable he saw the opportunity to take the easiest win off Riley's schedule and put more pressure on him? An opportunity to reduce the likelihood of 6 wins, and thus shave another year off the lifetime contract?
I don't know, but when the AD cancels the game a day early, it makes you wonder…at least it made me wonder. Just thought I'd throw the idea out there.
Of course, it's more likely he's just an idiot (Occam's razor). Also evidenced by his wanting to reschedule this game Championship Week (nothing like those at the top setting expectations high). /sarc
