I didn't care for 2 statements Staton made and I've given him benefit...


...of doubt, but this first one quoted below galls me.
"We’ve got a lot of things we have to do, but at the end of the day, all of this could really have been plotted out, and should have been seen in some cases, once the decision was made to leave Conference USA and join the American Athletic Conference.”

Terry Holland had it plotted out and left a sum sufficient to pay the AAC dues had that not been squandered.

Second, he comes across arrogant and dismissive in this one.

"They don’t know me and most of the time I don’t know them,” he said. “But they’re important; they buy tickets, they’re butts in the seats and we certainly depend on that for our financial stability in athletics. A lot of that (negativity) is just the nature of athletics. They really don’t know me.”
Petty.
