But losing Cobb allowed our university to gain IMO the very best AD we have ever had. The numerous accomplishments Doug Gillin and his staff have achieved in such a short period of time has been incredible! But what really impresses me about DG is the personality he brings which Cobb never had. It is not unusual for DG to stop by your tailgate to shake hands and thank everyone for attending. His visit takes 30 seconds but means the world to us ASU followers. I never once saw Cobb at our tailgate. Public speaking is another talent DG scores heavily over Cobb. Cobb brought no energy, no enthusiasm once he stepped to the podium. That is definitely not the case when DG speaks to a large gathering. I will never forget the last Yosef Spring Tour that Cobb attended. It was at the Rock Barn Country Club and he never spoke to us. He had Rick Beasley emcee the event. Nothing against Rick, but that was pitiful for the AD not to at least say "Thank You for coming out and supporting ASU Athletics". Great looking stadium, but I wouldn't give Cobb too much credit. One person's opinion

I'm not sure how much they can fill it up (gut says somewhere around what UNCC does with Richardson Stadium) but having their own digs should help that program out a lot I'd think.
