    Dan Beebe, Redeemed?

    If Beebe has somehow managed to pull this thing back from the brink at the 11th hour, and potentially doubled ISU's tv revenue, what measure of redemption do you think he's acheived?

    Hell no. He is the reason why we are in this position in the first place.

    i'll give him credit for the save, but it likely should have never gotten to this point in the first place.

    He gets to resign instead of being carried out by an angry mob.

    Had the guy been more like Delany instead of Monty Burns, Nebraska and Colorado wouldn't have jumped ship.

    The position to have a better tv deal and less schools to split it with?

    We wouldn't be in this position if a few years ago we started the Big 12 Network like the Big 10 did. I don't know if Beebe was in office then, if he was..then I agree with your comment.

    He crammed and barely passed the test at the last minute. That will get you through but you'll have an average GPA.

    Re: Dan Beebe, Redeemed?

    Beebe would equal Marmol last night. Almost blow the game but come back and save it. I would still not like him and not trust him but he did pull out a save.


    Hooray for Metaphors!

    Re: Dan Beebe, Redeemed?

    I give him credit but he is still an idiot.

    He is completely held hostage by The University of Texas and it took him losing 2 schools to finally come up with a TV contract where people are getting paid.

    I don't credit people for luck unless they put themselves in a position to benefit in the first place (a la Clint Dempsey and his goal on Saturday). Beebe is strictly lucking out that his incompetence isn't going to cost him everything as a result. This should have been done months ago. You know, back when Beebe was proclaiming a new TV deal DIDN'T need to get done...
