Coach Houlihan gets unfair flak

I don’t know Mr. Black or coach Houlihan, but I do recognize inflammatory screed when I read it. I believe it was irresponsible for The Union to print tirades of this nature.

Before getting off on coach Houlihan, perhaps we should the examine 2010, 2011 and 2012 records of NU’s JV and frosh teams. As I recall, they were mediocre at best. Athletic talent runs in cycles, and NU was pretty iffy until coach Blankenship showed up. And as I recall, he caught a lot of flak until the program turned around. Coach Humphers had a great run and got out just in time.
