Sure kids want to go to The Institute. No surprise there. Good campus and city.
BUT when they have spent 4 years at the place, they have little, if any, desire to contribute, as evidence by the paltry giving rate. Conversely, to cite just two, Holy Cross has 55% of their grads giving, and ND roughly 50% (a figure which even The Institute cited in an email as a goal for us for our pathetic rate.
Again,this has been proven to be about in the middle of the giving for colleges. Not great, not bad
QUESTION: Why do you think THEY do so well, when we flounder? Same caliber of kid, likely same economic situations. ND is a marketing machine and do a great job. what was the giving rate under Monan?
Try that one on, if you dare, my son. Anytime dear, anytime
WHICH two varsity coaches at Nova did you contact? And what did you ask them and what did they reply? When you talk about your "highly placed sources" at BC about Jags I will tell you with whom I talked with at Nova. Quid pro quo and that request has been out there much longer than yours
And why did your child not go to The Institute, if it is so desirable? Really none of your business but unfortunately he did not meet the academic standards but did try. Very happy at Nova as he has his own school and his own things we share with him there.
Interesting how you ducked the issue of whether Fr. Dobbyn was informed by Flippo that he was interviewing at The Institute. Too tough for you, I guess. I guess but not as good as you at ducking any request for information. Again, tell us all about the turnover with positions and numbers in those postions in the 15 years since 1996
Didn't Flippo himself fire Jags for interviewing elsewhere? (Distinction: Jags had the honesty to tell Flippo of his interest in the Jets job) Only when confronted by GDF and against an agreement Jags had to stay at least 3 years before interviewing. I know of no such arrangement GDF had. Also let's talk about the impact that Jags selfish decision had on his own family by removing his daughter from the campus school to lead the vagabond existence he now finds himself in. A real prince of a guy
Later with the minutes. Blaudschun's article has never been denied by Dear Leader. Hmmm One never gets into a fight with a pig; you both get dirty and the pig enjoys it. Why not address the minutes now? After all it is pretty easy to do
Why would a college guide include a negative review of a school official? Have you ever seen one that does? I have not. Well but someone must include it as a downside..has to nothing sellls like a good scandal
Oh, and continue with your name-calling. And then remind us of that great Catholic foundation you got at The Institute. Actually the foundation I got allowed me to look at those who speak lies and not tolerate the bile
Who condoned the acts which formed the basis of the NCAA sanction at UConn?
Not me. Then come with me and agree that calhoun screwed up and shoud be roundly criticized for how his program has been run from an academic and recruiting standpoint
But no one was indicted there, nor was organized crime involved. Nor was it the basis of even one national scandal - as opposed to the two that The Institute has - in two different sports. And what happened is very old and the people are no longer connected with BC
You don't want to go down that road, my friend. More than happy to. PLease come to us with the facts on the mistreatment of employees and the turnover. you have them and would not make groundless assertions, would you?
