Don't disagree with you regarding any of the points you make regarding Pasqualoni's dismissal. All I am going to say is that Pasqualoni allowed all those things to occur under his watch. That and keeping DeLeone ten years more than he should. Pasqualoni should have looked to go elsewhere if he wasn't getting what he needed to be successful at Syracuse. The bottom line is that he started the decline that has lasted for way too long. Go Orange!!!!!!It was a horrific decision.
The individuals who pushed for the dismissal were not football people and did not understand why the program was having difficulty.
The basic problem was financial - the University's failure to sufficiently invest in the program - outdated training facilities, outdated weight training facilities, outdated locker rooms - the Carrier Dome AstroTurf and on and on.
By the time Marrone got here we were still way behind.
Robinson and his staff revealed just how effective Pasqualoni and his staff were.
