Michigan State faculty deliver vote of no confidence to trustees
Imagine a Board of Trustees elected by the general public. Imagine!

Imagine the faculty delivering a vote of no confidence to that Board of Trustees. Imagine!

Everyone on the BOT is betting fat and sassy. Tuscaloosa drains the other two campuses why change? Its a Gump state and they have majority vote on any disagreements. They have already shown money is no object in fighting any bills. They spent millions to kill the last bill and didn't bat an eye. Only shot is change in the Governor and even that's an uphill battle.

Keep fighting. They are old and have bad health habits and will start dying off soon. Soon even the spawn of Finis will be outnumbered.

You were there. Don't forget the heroism of those 32 faculty senators. They knew there would be career retaliation - and they were right. They did the right thing anyway.

Academia breeds craven cowardice. It's endemic in the system and culture. Yet these men and women stood up against the evil of Ray Watts and his puppet masters. We have every reason to brim over with pride and gratitude.

That vote was crucial. It was a public stand against evil and corruption by the voice of UAB's faculty, not some angry football fans. The warped vision of Ray Watts would have returned UAB to a pitiful commuter school attached to a crippled medical school focused only on his Seven Pillars of Wisdom. The fine work of Parcak? Into the crapper. Hershowitz? Into the crapper. Even Pacifico's legacy would have been flushed.

It was never only about football. We fought for UAB's standing as a great university. When the Nobel Prize in Medicine is draped around Beatrice Hahn's neck and the world honors the University of Pennsylvania for her fine work, remember that we couldn't stop all of Watts' rampage. Our fight continues.

Had UA had an elected BOT in the 1960s, they would have all been George Wallace "YES men" like at Troy where the school's President expelled the school's newspaper editor for writing a critical piece about Wallace. Wallace rewarded him by providing funds for Troy's Montgomery campus. In a one party state, elected boards can be hazardous to growth.
