FYI, if any posters see a crazy man running through the streets of New York this afternoon screaming "We're free!! FREEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!", make sure to introduce yourself as he'll be Twisters Tavern.

I'm stunned. I surely hope she was forced out. Any coincidence with the TV schedules coming out this week? I hope so.

Who would you like to see replace her?

Oh glorious day.

I predict this thread gets 100+ posts easy.

I would think one name would have to be Rich Ensor from the MAAC. Some Charlotte 49er fans are suggesting Doug Elgin from the MVC, which I think would be a step down to the A-10 based on where the MVC has been recently.

It would be at best a lateral move for Elgin, at least at this point in time. Are the A10's bottom feeders willing to put up a financial package that might lure somebody like that?

December 5th should become a holiday for all A-10 schools! :lol:

Don't let the door hit you in your big fat ass on the way out, Linda.

This event will be looked back as the catylst to the resurgence of the A 10 as a relevant conference.

I haven't been this happy since Ratface got shitcanned.

The resignation does not take effect until next June 30, which suggests she wasn't shitcanned. Maybe nudged toward the door is more like it. My guess is they'll take as much of that time as needed to find a new commissioner. Hopefully she won't be able to do much more damage as a lame duck.

The Philadelphia Daily News is reporting in tomorrow's edition that it was Kosty's rants that finally led to her decision to resign. 8)
