And my last 8 words address your point.

You're right, what we do can sometimes be tough. I believe we make it tougher by obsessing over things like a coach's perception of our stance in between...

And the UIC or assignor should consider the validity of the coach's complaint. I don't expect that from an AD.

I pretty sure this wasn't an "NCAA" decision but one made by a group that apparently thinks it must change something every year to justify their positions.
