Gross missing swim meets
In dealing with the Syracuse University Athletic Department, I have learned that hostility and disappointment are virtually guaranteed. Rather than venting my frustrations, casting blame, labeling people, saying that some didn’t do their jobs, anything of the sort, I just want to ask a question: Why has Daryl Gross, director of athletics here at SU, never attended a swim meet?
In case you missed it, Gross is a ‘swim fan’ who attended many a meet while at the University of Southern California. He used those words in a teleconference concerning the elimination of the SU swim team. During my tenure here at SU, Gross has made it to one Saturday morning swim practice. I have even seen him at many other athletic events, but never a swim meet.
For informational purposes, our next home meet is Feb. 2, 2008. Diving starts at 9 a.m., swimming at noon. Admission is free. Incidentally, this is the final dual swim meet to be held on campus – ever. Let this serve as an official invitation to Gross and to the members of the Syracuse community to witness the end of a ‘tradition of excellence.’ Once again, admission is free.
