I called for a simple question and was treated as if I had ran over this lady's puppy. No one deserves to be treated that way or talk to on the phone in a disrespectful manner

That Netflix documentary didn’t work out too hot for your school, did it? If you gave the football program its own google listing you could probably avoid some of the flak on the school’s page. Another way to avoid criticism might be to disassociate from coaches who know they are being filmed, and still act worse than children. I know every story has two sides, but Tatum is on film talking trash during, what was supposed to be the post-game handshake between coaches. That’s a sorry image. The best and easiest way to make yourself seem desirable to prospective students is to show that you are an institution dedicated to growth, values, and change. But, much like your football team, you dropped the ball. I left 5 stars because I would never want to contribute to a silly show about a silly game possibly influencing someone’s academic future, but I was surprised to find out you still employ your head football coach. Other coaches from other schools seem just as childish, possibly more so, but that’s not an excuse for you. If you don’t want your university to grow then please disregard, otherwise, dress for the job you want.
