RE: The Failure of Ray Watts: No Confidence
I started sending by sending a personalized letter to the first few people, but it'd take days at that rate. I'm just going to try my best to come up with something that addresses the report and the recent actions of Dr. Watts.

That said, I truly feel this is our best shot for now. If the board appoints another insurgent, we can just do it over again until they begrudgingly accept we only want people here that care about the whole university.

Or rather than doing that, we could just have them make a resolution that says we will not let any future leaders be forced upon us that do not have the interests of the entire university and all its departments at heart?

They don't have that kind of power.

I know it can't be done, but I would really like to be able to ask Dr Watts under oath what he was asked by BOT leaders during his interview about terminating UAB football and other sports if he got the job. (Yes, I know that neither SACS nor the NCAA has that kind of power)

What's the point of firing Watts now? He did what he was brought in to do. Whoever is picked to follow him will continue the job of dismantling everything not med school related.

"Anybody who thinks you can’t overestimate the importance of “branding” should have been ousted long ago (along with the consultants who ginned up the statement)."

That's fantastic to have received the responses you did. Hopefully something can come from this.

I received one response from one professor (which went to everyone) that basically said they are educators first and that we are not big enough to compete with UA and AU. It was a very good letter - he just disagrees with me. I appreciate his response though.

Wow. I didn't realize we were asking to compete with those two schools. I figured there would be some of the educator first type replies, but when there is nobody left to educate, that may be difficult to do.
