Having covered a couple of Western Illinois games in the past, I got to know Coach Don Patterson, at least a little bit. Coach Patterson definitely deserved better than he received. IMO I weighed in on a column on him last year after he began his recovery from cancer.
I agree with our old CSN friend Dave Coulson that WIU handled this situation about as poorly as they could have.
I wish the Leathernecks well but this really tarnished their program IMO.
Here was some more information on the situation for those who haven't heard. http://www.wgem.com/Global/story.asp?S=11767809
