I think the UAA made some nice strides over the past couple seasons as it relates to marketing efforts. Anyone on these forums has read my rants relating thereto. But I have seen some real effort and improvement in recent years/ The media access is less about apathy or auto-pilot, and more about a mentality that came from the top. JF always had a very tight circle -- and that approach, in my opinion, -- permeated the culture. It was kind of an "inside access" only policy. I have always argued that such mentality had been ok for football, but basketball needs to be almost force-fed to the fan base. The UAA should be tripping over itself to reach any writer willing to cover the program. IT'S FREE MARKETING!!!! Don't get me wrong. . . JF, and specifically Mike Hill did wonderful things with our program and reached heights I never thought possible. But I also think a "closed circle" mentality and a notion that basketball can be marketed/sold like football --- are mistakes. I do not think Mike Hill's spot has been filled. That is odd - as it is a very important hire. Scott - if you are reading this, I am available!
