Oregonian sportswriter says Gottfredson acted like a child

John Canzano in the Oregonian, here.

I don’t empathize with the Ducks coaching staff or UO administrators. They’re the goats here, protecting one another. Coach Dana Altman hasn’t fielded my inquiries for comment. Altman looked physically ill, trying to sell the university’s version of events during that shrouded and awkward news conference. The athletic department administration has subsequently mocked the important public records requests that were made by media and citizens, trying to ascertain what they knew and when they knew it. The UO president has mostly responded to the protesters on campus by issuing, then desperately re-issuing their so-called “timeline” of events. Michael R. Gottfredson and Co. acted like children — thinking if they just yelled and shouted their version of the story a little louder it might make it more true.

    Nailed it! Take that Gott. Nah, nah, nah, nah, nah.

    He is right though…all the adults in the room acted like scared ninnies covering their own asses.

    I know, let’s have cage matches to work this out – all the strategic communicators against each other.

        OK, no more Canzano comments. Need to nip this in the bud.

          One more – even clowns can be right sometimes (unless they are UO admins).

            OK, but no more. I mean it!
