“I believe in [coach] Jerry Kill like you can’t believe,” Teague said. “But football is a big battleship and it’s slower to turn around.”

“We need to be competing at a higher level in our revenue sports,” he said. “I’m thrilled with our women’s program, and we’ve got to continue to support them.

That will generate more revenue, more interest in what we’re doing and it will help everybody else.”
