8/23/2012: Ian Campbell of the ODE gets a few quotes from students. The EW posts a shout out. Word from the Fishbowl is that students are planning a series of investigations, complaints and so on. Meanwhile the RG is still digging into the scandal, you know there’s more coming.

Why not get ahead of the curve by having Robin Holmes issue a genuine apology to the students, followed by Jim Bean promising that the money will be repaid by sending Holmes off on one of those unpaid furloughs that he loves to have other people take:

    After that they can create a collaborative process with students to come up with a reasonable new EMU plan, get rid of baseball and turn PK Park into a Sea World-style dolphin trick arena, and hire an economics professor to set coach salaries based on the actual social utility of their activities.

    Berdahl and Lariviere told Robin to do what ever it takes to get this done. She did. The apologies should come from them.

    I’m happy that the connection with the consultants has been cut. I’m not happy that no one is taking responsibility for the screw-up. Heads should roll here. The University of Oregon has suffered a huge blow to its reputation. Local and national reporters have done their job. It’s time for the UO administration to show that it will not tolerate such dismissive treatment of its students.

      I’m sure our Provost will address all this in his next message to the faculty.

      A town hall meeting? Or another ghostwritten beangram?

      I like seeing his messages to the faculty, because they provide publicity for how incompetent he is. Silence = long adminstrative life at UO. But you can likely take it up with him in person at the upcoming picnic: Come join your UO colleagues at a late summer meet-and-mingle. This event is scheduled to give you a chance to meet our new president, Michael Gottfredson.

      WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 5, 2012
      Memorial Quad Lawn (between the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art and the Knight Library)
      11:30 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.
      Picnic atmosphere – bring your lunch – light refreshments provided

      …because we can’t afford to give you a few shitty sandwiches and chips because we gave ourselves raises. Love you!
      Love,
      The Management

    Every time I see Bean’s face on campus I think less of myself for still working here.
