Genius Update: Fred Glass


We've give IU's new AD a hard time for a lot of what he's done in his short time at IU. But finally, he's done it- he's out-awesomed himself!

Glass, in his infinite wisdom, has decided to give up an IU home game in favor of playing Penn State at FedEx Field in 2010. It makes a ton of sense really- IU's fanbase is powerful in the DC area, so selling the 7,000 tickets shouldn't be any problem. Plus, it's a lot easier just playing some place else because finding a neighborhood kid, band booster or parent of a football player to run the concession stand at Memorial Stadium is sometimes difficult in Bloomington.
Glass calls FedEx Field in November a "Bowl-like atmosphere"...DC in November boasts of weather like the Humanitarian, Sun, Motor City or Emerald Nuts Bowl and is just an "afternoon's drive" from most IU fans*.

"The Whores....errrrrrrrr...Hoosiers will make a cool $3 million just for abandoning their fan base for one afternoon. That will come in handy as they will be paying off Lynch's buyout clause at that time...and will help them update the lousy press box that doesn't go along with the beautiful new endzone seats at Memorial Stadium (that clearly they don't want to use).

In a move my brother compares to making IU into the equivalent of the Washington Generals of the Big Ten, Glass continues to innovate and create unique opportunities for the IU fanbase to enjoy their Billy (Lynch) Ball.

Hats off, once again, Mr. Glass.

*An afternoon is defined by Mr. Glass as a 9-hour period

IU just needs to go join the MAC. They'd fit in much better. Still wouldn't have winning seasons, but would fit in better.

Good take from mgoblog on this:

I don't know...for $3 million I think I would whore myself out as well. If you think about it, after subtracting travel costs, that would be more money than the team would actually make in 2 seasons. They need to make some money to pay for Crean's paychecks someplace.

At the risk of sounding like an IU whore (well, whore of convenience anyway) I'd welcome a Purdue - Delaware State game. I'd stay the weekend in Wilmington (on the client's dime) and enjoy a Purdue game.

Not that I'm an advocate of selling out home-field advantage. Far from it. But this year... eh, what the hell. What do we have to lose. Only at IU is that a permanent mindset, I suppose.

For the record - I voted 10 win season, since that was the stoner vote. ;-)

Purdue-Delaware State would be fine. But if Purdue said that next year's already scheduled game with Michigan was going to be moved from West Lafayette to Windsor, Ontario (but don't worry! Purdue will still be the home team!), you might have a problem with it.

Good interpretation of the "afternoon's drive" remark. I've never been there, but based on the comments of my friends that avoid it like the plague, one alternative would be to explain to Mr. Glass that it's an "afternoon's drive" from any point immediately outside DC to some points within DC.

Windsor? Dude! Strippers, casinos ... so much more fun when you could actually cross the border easily. (Except the one time I was there, we couldn't find either. No, really. It was in '88, and we had some free time because of this one basketball game I'd rather not go into detail about.)
