Comparatively speaking, Fritz has had a pretty sweet ride compared to other K-State coaches as it relates to facilities (when Snyder first arrived, the tennis team, the rowing team, etc.). Many didn't even have facilities for years. Or, in Mike Clark's case, he had a junior high field and then had to play on the road for an entire season (which, literally, included a series against Maryland on a middle school field).

Fritz's facility issues/complaints pale in comparison.

Holy hell is this ridiculous.

No, it's really not. Historically speaking, K-State facilities have been quite poor. But, Fritz/VB haven't been nearly as poor as the vast majority of the other sports.

Even if this is true, how in the world is it relevant? Is she recruiting against other college volleyball programs or the K-State baseball team?

It's relevant for several reasons - other K-State coaches have had worse facilities and, arguably, performed better than Fritz (Snyder in the early days, Rovelto, etc.).

Setting aside the sports that virtually nobody historically cares about (including our athletic department) such as golf, tennis, rowing, etc., the athletic department has actually fired coaches for lack of performance in the middle tier sports (VB, women's b-ball, baseball) as well as the upper tier (football, men's b-ball). Fritz's past three years are as bad (and it's pretty easy to argue it's worse) than anything under Wooly, Asbury, Clark, Patterson - all coaches who were pushed out despite not having "great" facilities (b-ball was still in Ahearn for practices/offices and Clark had a couple of years with a stadium that was middle of the pack the second it was built, while ceiling tiles were still falling in Brandeberry).

As for VB facilities, outside of the top 25ish programs, the vast majority of VB facilities across the country are high school level or slightly higher. No dedicated VB practice courts, sharing time with basketball teams for court time, etc. By that measure, Fritz should be able to produce a fringe top 25 program. She did for a while, but her program has fallen off the rails. A new facility will give her a boost, but it won't fix the root problem, which is that Fritz is past her prime and it's time for her to go.

Anna Dixon transferring to Mizzou.  Horrible look for the program considering her KState bloodlines.

Even with the proliferation of transfers nationwide this, along with seeing local talent go elsewhere, is troubling to say the least. We'll see what Gene does, if Currie was still here, she'd certainly be gone.

Why don't you white folks ever talk about Gene hiring a black tennis coach? He snatched the one decent thing about ndsu he doesn't want anything to do with that cesspool, it's why he got out himself for a regular person job.

Jus sayin, hiring a young black man to coach women's tennis isn't something Fargo Gene would do.
