    Jurich's name getting thrown around with AD offers is a lot like Cal and coaching jobs. Every time one comes open, he is going to be mentioned. That's the price you pay for having the best AD in the country.

    I respect the heck out of Tom and what he has accomplished across his entire program -- you can't help but respect it.

    Love him and the Cards? Umm...no.

    To paint a contrary point to the litany of posters above me, I think it is a terrible time for Jurich to leave. He has his #1 program on the rocks right now, and to leave looks like he abandoning the ship at their moment of need. Really bad look, in my opinion. Jurich has earned the right to do whatever he wants, but as one of (if not THE) the highest paid AD's in America, he has a very good situation in the Ville which would be hard to leave.

    He has done so much good for Louisville (the city AND the university), I'd hate to see his last move be exiting stage left as MBB dangles in the wind with the NCAA.

    Hope he stays, rides the wave through the Pitino stuff, and makes the next hire. Then, when everything is solid footing, leave for a really GOOD job if he is hankering for a change, not a dumpster fire in Watts.
    The campus is on the south edge of downtown. The areas that get bad are about 6-8 blocks away from the Coliseum.

    I've been on campus many times, it isn't good.

    So, is Clifton good or bad?
