My thought process (with pictures) on the Dana Altman hire


After going with this approach for six weeks…

…Pat Kilkenny decided to change course — dramatically — and hire Creighton’s Dana Altman. My immediate impression?

WTF.

My sister’s name is Dana.

I didn’t even know who he was until I heard “Creighton coach.”

Now, after first finally figuring out where the hell Creighton is (not a good sign), reading the local writers discuss Altman’s need for a change of scenery, hearing the local Eugene writers on their high horses say “this is the type of coach Oregon should have been going after all along”, reading a poster on ATQ compare Altman to Bruce Pearl, and just about every other person with a keyboard desperately talk themselves off the ledge and into Altman simultaneously, I’m finally climbing on board.

It shouldn’t take that much to rationalize a hire.

I don’t think Phil Knight built Matthew Knight Arena to be the home of women’s volleyball.

On the bright side, no matter how Dana does here at Oregon, we’ll always have these girls to keep us entertained:

No matter how old we get, they always stay the same age.

  1. I think you’re being way harsh here. Altman might not be a big name, but he’s got solid numbers behind him. Should be interesting to see what he can do.
