Credit to tk who first posted this on another thread but I felt it was worthy of its own thread. Without knowing the financials, I think on the surface, this is a great deal for GW. IMG's connections in the world of college athletics is unparalleled and this clout should only work to GW's advantage. Kudos to Nero and staff for recognizing that this program, while on the way up, is a tough sell at this moment in time. The only potential downside is that GW marketing, as a priority, falls by the wayside as more prominent programs receive more of IMG's attention and resources to the point where GW marketing is all but neglected. However, with a dedicated individual working on GW's behalf, I would not anticipate this being the case.
