An interesting comment Scott Woodward made today in his announcement that he would not pursue the AD job permanently is that he worried there was maybe an "acceptance of mediocrity'' in the department.
"I worry about some complacency and some acceptance of mediocrity,'' he said. "People were assuming that doing the right thing and winning were mutually exclusive and they're not. ... Winning is a very important core value of what we do. The other things --- being compliant, doing things in the best interest of the student-athlete --- are underpinnings.''
Meaning, those things should be taken as givens and not as things that detract from the effort to win.
Former UW athletic director Todd Turner had said he thought there was too much of a focus on winning after he was forced to resign in December.
