That's a stretch. Repole was scathingly critical of the head coach search. That search was being conducted by Cragg.
Yes, he was explicitly harsh on Bobby G and Bobby O, but he scorched earth the whole program, the University, and Cragg.
 


IIRC in the interview he said that Cragg was being held back by the two Bobbys from doing his job and a thorough search for a new Head Coach and that Cragg wasn't to blame but the Bobbys were.

I was sitting in the 7-11 parking lot and I’ll go back and listen again bu my he most definitely praised Cragg. I’ll find the interview and give it a listen again

Nothing really direct.  He's friends with Repole and they done some business together.

Vinnie is a Brooklyn guy who graduated from West Point.  A friend coached him is sandlot baseball and thinks the world of him as does the son of another friend who also went to the Point and raves about what a superb person he is.  A great friend to his fellow Pointers and servicemen.  Self made real billionaire (like Repole, another city kid who both have love of the ponies).  Vinnie's connection to Fordham is through his sons who attended and graduated from Fordham, which he came to appreciate as a Catholic institution teaching service to others.  He would have made a great secretary of the Army but realized/understood the conflicts of interest issues and asked for the nomination to be pulled.

I listened to it again and I stand corrected. You are right, he did not criticize Cragg. He did make statements that Cragg denied about the coaching search. And I am glad they did not go the way the Repole wanted and hired Hurley. Hurley is overrated and starting to lose support at Arizona. He needs a big next season to avoid the hot seat. Anderson is the right guy for us.
