We as a program are striving for success. As the club President, I can say no student drank alcohol on the charter bus. This setback from non students is practically crippling the growth and progress of the organization. Let's look at the facts though... I should not have let the coaches have a few beers.
The Athletic Director at the very beginning of the year said the school will NOT put the coaches under a contract. So when it comes to things like this, If the grown man wants to have a beer he is going to have a beer. But it is still a university event. There should not be alcohol on the bus at any point in time.
The club is participating in many community service events and other volunteering events in a plea to get the season back on track. (If) Next season is eligible for WIU we are going to do things differently. We are working on re-structuring the organization from the ground up to keep the club's forward progress. We apologize for the inconveniences we have caused. We hope to be competitive and orderly for seasons to come.
