President elect is Dr. Printella Ridgeway Thomas. What type of doctor is she? If she is in the Watts camp, we will have a problem.

I couldn't find a link to the NAS by-laws on their site. Curious about any recall mechanism for NAS officers. Anyone know where on-line the by-laws might be viewed?

Someone needs to play 20 questions with Printella.

In my brief encounters she seems like an active supporter of athletics.

Calling might be a faster option in this case.

I know three members of the alumni society's directors and they are big UAB athletics supporters. Plus, Watts ducked the last meeting with the NAS where he was supposed to have spoke. Unfortunately, we got to listen to Coach Clark and Brian Mackin talk about football. Looking back I would say neither had any idea what Watts had planned unless Mackin lied to us.

Yes, and he is in support of UAB Football and the #freeUAB movement and I suspect a lot of those directors are. However, they can only sway so much. Getting Wes Smith to take a stronger stance is the key IMHO.

If Smith is as much of a kiss ass as it appears, he may change his stance once it appears to him that others will not follow him anymore.

I can't imagine Watts' appearance was anything other than inflammatory. Damn, the dude's got a tin ear.
