Seems like a straight shooter. Something I appreciate. Don't like snakes.

Dear Bob,
I would disagree. She hired Creighton, and was probably the brains behind the new athletic construction, as well as hiring other successful coaches at Eastern.
Wetherbee may be better than Lyke, but only time will tell.

I watched the webcast and his persona came across 100 or 1,000% sincere.

I think most people have B.S. meters and can tell when we are being B.S.ed.

He came across as the type of person you'd want for a brother or brother-in-law.

BTW, this is the agenda for yesterday's athletic meeting.

Interesting the facilities including lighting at Rynearson.

Ken, I was never a fan of her or her OSU way of doing things. Wetherbee seems more like the caliber of person who should be running EMU. Hopefully he will find us a great basketball coach!

I am pleased with the selection of AD, restores a bit of faith in Dr. Smith and the Regents. Time to move forward!

I was surprised at the level of second guessing before the selection.

No reason for a school to make a bad choice. PLENTY of excellent candidates out there.

I'm sure any of us could have selected him. Good career record, Midwesterner and a real MAC guy.

Excellent fit.

I wasn't given some of lack of transparency on the part of the administration and Regents and lukewarm comments during the "budget" issue. The past handling of student protesters, Dr. Martin and the EAA haven't impressed me. No reason for the school to made a bad choice? We've made plenty on a number of issues at EMU in the past. I also said I wanted an AD similar to what CMU hired and we got one with a similar background. So pleased we didn't blow it.
