Ignore Gatzie in his LongPotter incarnation.
The place is what it is: Truth is that the Ube Alles crowd here swallows the talking points to convince themselves that The Heights is what they HOPE it is.
But it ain't.
Fact is, under the Gang of Two, sports have declined, coaches have been savaged, millions of dollars have been wasted on paying fired staff, it costs dearly to attend a game, three-quarters (and more at different times) of alumni care not enough to contribute, and arrogance continues to govern.
Worse than all of that, however, The Gang of Two has given multiple reasons for the media and others to grow skeptical of their word.
That's not the kind of place I signed on for long ago. Never in my dreams did I suspect that the reputation of the place would be tarnished by untruth. But come 1996 and thereafter, that's just what happened, my friends.
Harsh, but true, folks. My suspicion is that they feel secure in continuing this pattern, confident that the alumni will remain passive and ignorant of what happens on this campus.
IMHO, I reluctantly conclude that ship at Behead Coaches (and broadcasters and deans and others) Institute can't be righted until the Trustees wake up and give us new leadership.
