This was just one bad game; SIU will be back. Right now, there are few athletic teams that have done as well as Southern, and SIU athletics is at a renaissance.

Given all of the bad press SIU always seems to get with regard to academics (easy school, no admission standards, poor retention rates, plagiarism by administrators, party school, worthless degree, etc.), the athletic program is the highlight of the university. I only wish the focus could be more on improving academics and less on sports. After all, a meaningful degree is what we paid for, and what we should expect.
