Yup. I'm still a little salty over the way the way some elements of the 11W staff handled this story. I demand a formal apology in a handwritten letter for being told to "take a walk around the block" (I actually don't). It was disappointing though, especially the "if you don't agree you are an idiot" mentality.

I agree with this point. I think what they should have done is put Waters on administrative leave until the results of the independent investigation are released. That way the university would either (1) have multiple reports to back up their decision to terminate or (2) be able to say "we've done due diligence and we think the band is heading in the right direction." Really hard to go back now that he's been fired, especially given Ohio State's reputation over the last 10  years.

I'm a recent graduate of the OSU School of Music in orchestra and I can honestly say that no one that I interacted with, faculty or students, in or around the orchestra had anything but genuine pride in the marching band.  We did completely different things and nobody had it out for the band.  Occasionally their (frankly well-deserved) pride would annoy us but I can definitely tell you that the last thing on our minds as non-band people was what the hell the band was doing. I can't speak for concert band people but fairly frequently I saw the head of the SOM (a concert band person) on the sidelines supporting the band.  I know that the person talks of "factions" but from my experience I do not know what he or she is talking about.  I spoke to my professor to make sure I wasn't crazy and he didn't know of factions either.  Again, however, I'm a string player so it could be that the wind people had a different experience.

Not that it really matters for this nickname since, like you said, we are English speakers in the good old USA but I'm pretty sure that "boot" is even pronounced "boat."

Raekwon the chef! I almost had a heart attack when he picked up the 'Bama hat.

Without sounding too uninformed, does anybody know his family situation?  What's the money like for a second day draft guy? 

That's the only thing I could think of.  Maybe he believes that he can be successful...and make a little money immediately to help his family out.  I honestly don't know, beyond that I can't imagine how he would think leaving now is a good idea.
