Comment 20 Apr 2015

From what I read the decision to initially remove her and the victims alleged attacker from the band was both of their decisions, though the report made it sound like Waters was the one who remained adamant that she not rejoin until she took the issue to the next level. JSandusky11 has offered another side of the story since I've read that report. In the reports mentioned there are two more cases of sexual assault that were by band members under Waters. That prompted me to believe that the university was justified in his termination. I don't know that I hold the stance he should have been fired but I'm not ready to jump on the stand with Waters bandwagon.

Thanks for humoring me. Obviously I don't have access to that information. Given the supposed 3 sexual assault charges were brought up by the university with no other information to go off of I default stand by the university. Now to what extent he was involved, at fault, or responsible in the dealing of these situations I don't know and will probably never know. I'll take your word for it about that particular case. But since I have no way of knowing about the others I'm not willing to shout stand with Waters or, now, decry him.

Maybe. I mean saying someone knows how to work a room doesn't necessarily mean anything political. Most agree he is a great orator. Most agree Hitler was a great orator. I don't think Eric acknowledging that Obama handled the event well points to any political leaning.

EDIT: In retrospect I hope I didn't offend anyone with the hitler comment. Just trying to illustrate a point.

Never read about the person later being expelled from the band, if you could link I would appreciate it. However unless the report is false he initially attempted to remove the victim from band activities and didn't change his stance until her action forced him to. Your post also didn't answer my question about the two other sexual assaults that allegedly happened under his tenure. I think Waters is a nice guy but the way he handled the first sexual assault, coupled with two other alleged sexual assaults under his tenure is grounds for firing in my book.

Comment 20 Apr 2015

I'm not a troll. I was fully in support of Waters but in the articles I read they mentioned accounts of sexual assault. Not anything to do with the sexualized culture, but victims who came forward about sexual assault that had happened to them. I will link one of the articles I read. I do believe the sexualized culture thing was overblown. But sexual assault is never overblown. 


Comment 20 Apr 2015

Yes I was with the stand with Waters people initially. Then I read about the victim who was sexually assaulted and what Waters and Gene Smith attempted to do about it (not nearly enough). Then I also read in numerous reports that there were two other reported cases of sexual assault as well as a sexual harassment claim all under his tenure. These have been reported in numerous journal articles and sources. What part am I missing?

Or just censor yourself. Now I've always thought Obama to be quite _______ and his positions on _______ and ________ left me with a very strongly ______ feeling towards the direction of the country. While I personally think Obama is _________ I think those that both agree with my position and are against my position regarding him can appreciate the gravity and the honor that graces our football team by meeting him. So ______ you Obama.

Yep though what you said also applies to a lot of businesses in which case your undergrad degree will matter.

Comment 20 Apr 2015

There is a lot of truth to what you have said. However especially in some law firms on the east coast ect. there are traditions/standards in place where they will only look at candidates from certain schools. It very much matters what you go into. Networking is huge and that is probably the biggest tangible difference between schools.

A man who is so obsessed and devotes so much time to winning it could be considered a personal fault on top of a reputation for being a top coach does help me sleep any better. Sounds a bit like Urban's problem when he was at UF. While some brush off Jim, I think we are going to see some crazy battles between these two, and some of them we will be on the losing side of.

I heard they were stepping it up this year and going with pucci.

Comment 13 Apr 2015

I like how a common phrase on this site is "Stars don't matter" then when we are down against someone it becomes "HOW ARE THEIR 2 STARS BEATING OUR 4 STARS?!" I myself at times may have been a perpetrator. Not sure if that qualifies as what you are going for. 

Comment 07 Apr 2015

Yep as a student I think this is a big problem for the university. The requirements to transfer are absurdly low compared to normal admissions. They need raise the criteria for transfers to the main campus.

Wow such ridiculous BS. The refs are starting to ruin this game.
