    "Bruce comes to Tech with a wide array of administrative experience at all levels," Dooley said. "He was a part of significant growth and change at both Iowa State and Kansas State, and we are looking forward to having him join the Tech family."

    What significant growth was he responsible for at ISU?

    What significant growth was he responsible for at ISU?
    None, he killed some programs, namely baseball and fired one of the most successful basketball coaches ever at ISU and replaced him with a guy that set us back even after he left. The only thing that might have grown was his own ego.

    One of my friends in college was watching a soccer game and BVD called him out of the stands and chewed him out because apparently Bruce's wife thought that she overheard them talking bad about Bruce. They weren't even close to saying anything about Bruce, he said the conversation had absolutely nothing to do with him so he told Bruce he needed to quit being so uptight just because no one likes him at ISU. Bruce apparently asked him why he thought that and he basically listed off such things as cutting baseball, firing Larry, and something to do with the student seating at the time I think.

    The biggest difference between him and Jamie is that Jamie is not scared to interact with the fans. Bruce would not answer emails or be passing out McDonalds at tailgates on a cold morning. Heck he avoiding giving out recognition at games a lot because if he did he'd be booed.

    I'd love to hear VDV's side of all the happenings in his tenure.


    Forever trying to find a cure for the Dunning-Kruger Effect.

    As much as I hate BVDV (and that's a lot), I have to argue this one. I called him the night he announced he was firing Larry and left him a message telling him how stupid he was and left my number. Within 10 minutes he called me back and wanted to know why I thought this. It didn't make me think any more of him as an AD, but I was impressed that he called a random college student back to discuss it.



    Im just glad I have Homan as my bodyguard, Eustachy joked. If I ever make it real big and get to drive a limo everyday, hell be driving it. I thought he came off the bench like somebody was stealing his cow or something.
