What's going on here? How about some substantive and constructive dialogue?

1- Colgate staff are professionals, they have earned their degrees, their positions and negotiated their compensation. And as such have an obligation to promote change as they see fit. And while they don't tell you how to do your jobs, they get on with theirs. So what's so wrong with some faculty, a minority at that, endorsing a letter proposing changes in athletics?

2- Dave Roach was a terrible AD in my view, given his overall performance and the terms of his departure. Maybe he was good as a short term henchman, if one were needed, but then a short term consultant could have done a better job with less lasting downside. So if that's the cost of ridding us of him, well, that's a shame. (Too bad though that I did not get a chance to read his sabbatical thesis and recommendations before he left town...)

3- What's wrong with foreign full pay students? If it were not for full pays on top of our most successful 2012-ending capital campaign we would not have been able to offer 68 more aided admission slots this year alone to domestic students. Now if you want to endow a scholarship(s) for midwestern small town students you should get on it!

How about some supportive discussion for improving the quality and depth of athletics? I am interested in particular in donating towards the repurposing of Starr and will ask Vicky Chun about it at Reunion. And about momentum, I see that the webcam on the NAF is live on gocolgateraiders.com although it seems to show a patch of gravel so far. It also needs more bandwith but I expect this rectified soon.

Go 'gate!
