Demons doing the right thing

Kudos to Northwestern State for trying to do the right thing by giving Mike McConathy a multiyear contract.

Why is it the right thing?

Let me count the ways. First, it sends a statement as to his value to the athletic program. Second, even though contracts are broken all the time in sports nothing is easier to break than a one-year deal. And third, it should ensure stability for the program.

Two trips to the NCAA Tournament in the last five years. Two wins (yes, one was a play-in game) in those two trips speaks volumes as well.

This is a program on the rise among Southland Conference schools.
