  1. The new AD should take a look at Adam Ward’s comments and take them to heart. That’s what’s holding the athletics program back in most sports, the lack of equitable spending to improve the athlete’s experiences and improve facilities. AU athletes have no facilities that make any of them want to come here to play. Most are here for the education side. Good luck coach Ward.

  2. It’s a shame that AU made such a pathetic offer to keep Ward here. He’s done so much with so little support. They’re going to regret losing this wonderful coach. Keel has done a lot of good things but he’s missed out here.
