    Don't Worry, be Happy?

    Heard an interview of a FCS athletic director today. The gist of the exchange was that programs that know what they are, understand what their limitations are, programs that are "comfortable in their own skin" essentially, can go out, try to be the best of the group that they are competing in. And the declaration was that programs that have this self-awareness and are not disgruntled with it, are the programs that are most successful in the environment in which they compete. Is this something that we should aspire to? We need to know what we are--and what we are not, what we proactively CHOOSE NOT TO BE. Then, once we are good with that, we just forget about the conference championships and strive to be the best institution of high academic quality and integrity that fields a team of principled young men who are also admirable student-athletes. Is that what we need to do?

    That's a great attitude to avoid dissatisfaction. Surrender to reality while striving for being the best you can be. Pretty good outlook for life really, very zen-like.

    Jeez, foggy is coming after you with private messages now? Man, what's wrong with that guy? But I guess that's what it's all about. Making emotional, asinine comments to try to get replies rather than using logic and bringing solid points to the discussion.

    Seems to work on you pretty well my friend.I would let this one go since its private matter between two but to each his own.Since he posted its fair game.Shoot the blog is about emoitions and asinine comments...if not who would even respond.Solid facts are not viewed as solid by many here thats why its a blog.
