LTTE: from a Ram Faithful

Oct 082007

I have been a Ram faithful since moving from Chicago to go to CSU in 1990. I worked in the equipment room when Sonny started in the spring of ’93.

I have a tremendous amount of respect for Sonny and the culture and spirit of winning that he has brought to CSU athletics and the university as a whole.

After his arrival and successes, we saw great things happen in women’s basketball, women’s volleyball, lacrosse, and women’s swimming.

Why? Because he established a winning culture.

As a result, the university and its alumni have higher expectations for our sports teams and our university in general.

However, as we all know, that spirit and drive to win has declined over the years with our football team.

With all due respect, it is time for Sonny the Great to step down on his terms.

Sonny helped us raise our game, be winners, and be proud to be Rams.

Before that becomes a distant memory and university athletics become satisfied with mediocrity again, Sonny needs to step down. If he doesn’t, it is time for him to be fired.

We all respect what he accomplished over the last 14 years, but now it is time for him to leave to protect that legacy and allow someone else to take us to the next level.

We need a new stalwart Ram to lead our football team back to greatness and uphold the high expectations and the culture of winning he helped established.
