    #USWNT - 2019 World Cup

    True but you also have to determine if possession on the defensive end is better than a 50/50 ball you are trying to ping over the top. Good to have a varied approach but both have risks. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    Ha funny how DD likes to point out he lost his best player to injury most of his last years coaching but doesn’t allow any grace here for Romeos injury. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    What was the tweet last night? I can handle a little DD here and there while driving around at lunch time but I had to unfollow as well. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    #USWNT - 2019 World Cup

    One of the articles mentioned the TV deals were bundled - Men’s and Women’s - so it was hard to know who pulled in what. I would be curious to see if the values of broken apart. I will go out of my way to see the women play but could currently care less about the men. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    #USWNT - 2019 World Cup

    I saw this posted as well and am not surprised as I prefer to watch the USWNT. However, I wish they would have included all revenue instead of just gate receipts. Does TV, apparel or other streams look different? Also, what is the gap and how has they been tending over this same period? Is the gap closing rapidly, slowly or not at all? Lastly, does the success of the USWNT hurt them? As dominant as they have been over the last few years would it be wiser to spend there or spend on the men’s side to catch up? Does the USMNT have more earnings potential if they had similar success? A lot more to this discussion than just gate receipts but those are probably an indication that the pay gap should be shrinking. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    It could be but I am still convinced we were in a really good spot until we had our terrible mid season losing streak. That opened the door for Cal to come closer. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    2019 Off-Season IU Roster News and Moves

    Just curious. How many Dayton games did you watch? I watched a couple the year he made his run and then watched the following year when they played here in Indy. The Indy game was not that exciting but the tourney run games were. Still I would not presume to think that watching that tourney run and deciding that was any more indicative of what his teams can do than making that decision based on how we played down the stretch this year (2 wins vs MSU). I am curious if you watched more than a couple of games a year while he was at Dayton. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    2019 Off-Season IU Roster News and Moves

    If you are drafted in the second round and have no guaranteed contract do you still get to come back. Seems a good risk if only for first round but if it extends through round 2 then it would probably be a little too risky for me Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners
  12. I think this is a fair point. It could very well be that he wanted teammates to do something differently. Also very possible that while the coaches would have agreed in general his approach to fixing that problem was the incorrect approach. That might have caused him some locker room friction with players and coaches Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    Left Field Candidate for a Job

    The position in question is to run a college career placement group. My experience is in key account management/sales/origination. On the surface they may not match up but in both roles you need someone that can connect with commercial and industrial people. You need someone that can sell ideas, products and people. Having had success as a key account manager in a sales role will be key but it is not enough. In addition to this I coached for about 10-15 years and many of the kids I coached in MS and HS are now entering the workforce. I have worked with many of these kids to understand their skills, how to interpret postings and how to make the translation. Surprisingly many schools have not really been coaching kids well on making this transition. Or at least the ones I have worked with have not been well prepared. As a result, I have developed a bit of a passion helping kids bridge into a career. So many qualified kids read a job posting and eliminate themselves (and dont apply) assuming they have to have all the requirements listed in order to even apply. Similarly, many kids think there is one spot out there for them and they narrow their search. Sales is a great background to help here because you have to research a company well and be narrow when you are talking to that company but you also have to use a wide lens to consider multiple opportunities. I think having the background in sales, the ability to manage key industrial relationships and the passion to help kids bridge into their careers makes me a great left field candidate Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app
  14. I could use some help/suggestions for a job I would like to apply for. The thing is I would be kind of a left field - non traditional candidate but I posses a lot of the same skills needed. I have the passion and experience (albeit in a different arena) to excel in this position but I want to embrace the idea that I am non traditional. Anyone have any suggestions? This would be for an executive/VP level position so it would be a great opportunity. If any of you have cover letter, resume or other strategies I should consider in order to get some serious traction despite having a different background Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app
  15. I don’t follow baseball as much but didn’t he win with kids recruited to play a different style? If so, it is really impressive to win early even though you had to adapt your style to match your roster. Hopefully he can maintain this level of play and success Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app
