POINTING FINGERS: In Orlando, Mike Bianchi writes Hitt is “considered a man of integrity, and you could hear the hurt in his voice when discussing Tribble's role in this sordid, stinking mess.” Hitt said of Tribble, "As the athletic director, he has a higher responsibility. He's the one the president and the chancellor count on to make sure the bar (of compliance) is raised." Tribble not only “failed to raise the bar, he lowered it into the sewer.” His regime as AD “can only be described as an unmitigated disaster.” Bianchi: “He did not have a close relationship with the big-money boosters. As a fundraiser, he was a flop. As an administrator, he presided over a dysfunctional athletic department.” Bianchi writes there is “one bright spot: At least it's not Penn State” (ORLANDO SENTINEL, 11/10).
