I'm hearing that Provost Lucas was the only real defender of Watts. This saddens me deeply. It will be an unfortunate casualty of this war that she will likely have to leave once the smoke settles.

Man, that took a lot of guts for her not only to be the only one, but for her to come out and say she supports him...

I plan on writing her. This is extremely disappointing.

I agree. It is disappointing. I like Dr. Lucas. Every time I see her she has a lot of energy and is excited to talk about what she or someone else is doing to make the university better. I respect her a lot and never heard anyone else have a negative thing to say about her.

In this case, it's not guilt by association. I just can't support anyone that supports Dr. Watts.

From Kyle Whitmire:

“@WarOnDumb: After what I’ve heard tonight, there’s no way I can see NAS board not voting no confidence and keeping credibility. #FreeUAB”

I thought Lucas' support was very lukewarm. It was a statement of support, but I didn't find to be very strong one. A friend of mine that also went, and that new her from his undergrad days, also thought it was a very weak statement of support.

Mackin and Lucas can go in together on a time share in Cuba. They are taking the money over loyalty to our school and city.

It's still a statement of support

Don't know Linda but if she supports Watts, then goodbye.

From Whitmire again:

“@WarOnDumb: I'll wait on the UAB NAS board tonight. The rest of y'all enjoy the game. #FreeUAB”

As long as UAB doesn't have a football team, I don't watch college football. However, I do appreciate Whitmire's dedication to his job.

I have it on tv, but not really watching it. The desire just isn't there.

Whitmire, Scarbinsky, and Archibald have been huge for us in this. I hope they keep these stories up until we have our own board of trustees. Had this happened at another school with a board that actually cared then Watts would already have been removed.

Scarbo just admitted to me on Twitter that he knows who the turf donor was. I won't pry but any others go at em.

If it doesn't, then the board is truly useless. From what I was told, they met three times already about this meeting in particular prior to tonight.

You always have a choice. It's thinking we didn't have a choice that got us into this mess in the first place.
