Finally decided to venture off the hot mess that is the football board to see what else BN is chatting about, thought this might be something worth discussing. Nope, more political fighting.
How is something pointing out that looting and thuggery in the name of "protesting" is wrong, political?
I’m not sure what the rest of this thread is about, I stopped at “pansy liberal”. Sounds like it didn’t get back on track to EWU finances.

Who would we rather see teach the Constitution: Barack Obama/Sonya Sotomayor or Larry Arnn/Antonin Scalia. Someone that feels it changes with the times or someone that holds to its originality. Same can be said for the Bible. One of our youth group boys once said, well, it is 2010 and things have changed. Can the courts write law?
Good point, put me in the camp with it needs to evolve with the times. I think we should bring back Thomas Jefferson who believed it should be re-written from scratch every 19 years.

This part of the article makes you wonder how she got the job at EWU:

Before taking the helm of EWU in 2014, Cullinan resigned as president of Southern Oregon University after an overwhelmingly poor performance evaluation and a no-confidence vote by the SOU faculty. Professors at the time accused her and other administrators of financial mismanagement.


Sport costs at EWU seems to be one of several issues plaguing the school.

Yes, just a bit surprising.

Very important moment for EWU athletics. If the new President (interim right now) isn't a sports guy, this may be the end of EWU football as we know it. All it takes is one President who is anti-sports.
