Re: Les Taylor

There needs to be a distinction between retiring a number and retiring a jersey. We have a long history and hopefully, a bright future. We will run out of numbers, unless we begin retiring a Jersey, which means you can use the number again at some point.

In reality, the biggest part of this is that the recruiting agencies and the big $$$ schools (especially the low level programs) needs a phrase to excuse the fact that they got it wrong on these guys.

Re: Looks like we are getting a new president

The budget is public record. If he couldn’t take the time to look at it, he probably shouldn’t have run. And he ran on closing corporate tax loopholes. Instead he implemented a sales tax on services.

Re: Looks like we are getting a new president

Again, its not that state funding has decreased substantially, technology demands are higher now, or that the boomer generation is starting to use their pensions... its all because we gave people more access to higher education. Got it.

Re: Looks like we are getting a new president

Not sure it’s a hijack. The president was pushed out with enrollment being the named cause. What president wants to come to a school where the cost is going up massively before your first contract ends and where they will blame you for enrollment drops?

From what I’ve heard and read, it’s $80k in equipment, student produced. It doesn’t really help Murray State much, IMO. But it’s a big gift to Martin, EIU, Head...
