per packpride...

He is the fucking UNC system president, not UNC Chapel Hell's president.

Why is he getting involved with this small-time bullshit? This is what pisses me off about the "UNC system"

from Packpride poster:

Quote :
"If you had been at University Day and heard his "carolina first" speech, you'd all be concerned. And when he led the singing of the carolina fight song, complete with "go to hell X" (couldn't tell if he said State or Duke as that was mixed among the faculty), it was all I could do not to walk out. Turned my stomach.

Believe me and others on here when we say there is pause for concern with this man in charge of the university system. "

where the fuck was Egghead Bowles when we were searching for a basketball coach?????

And I do believe that if an NCSU alum in State govt had done or said anything about State like Bowles said about his alma mater then he/she would be fired.

Why would we want a politician to be involved in a bball coach search? Did I miss something or is Erskine Bowles a good evaluator of basketball talent? Or football talent?

You know Steve Spurrier is leaving USC if some failed politician says the job is better!

before you hound him he is rumored to be the #1 reason why bunting was let go when he was

http://www.chapelhillnews.com/107/story/3089.html

Quote :
"Erskine Bowles is now the president of the university system. His family has deep roots running through UNC. His dad's name is on the Skipper Bowles Building at the medical school and on Skipper Bowles Drive, near the Smith Center that owes its construction to his impressive fund-raising skills.

Erskine Bowles was a popular choice for the university's top post.

If Bowles loves Carolina the way everyone believes, he will take control of this situation and see that sweeping change takes place in Chapel Hill.

Throwing money at a new coach is not going to solve the football program's problems, or those of the athletic department as a whole.

The time has come to rid UNC of the so-called leaders who dodge responsibility for their failures, and to hire people of vision with the courage to actually lead.

The easiest thing in the world will be to make Bunting the sacrificial lamb in all of this."

^^^The big deal is that he's the system president.

This would be akin to a high school principal giving a scoring key to the math test to his cousin.

He needs to do his job and let the fucking UNC administration fuck this up proper.

Like I asked; what competitive advantage does this give UNC? Is Erskine Bowles a good evaluator of what it takes to coach a college bball or football team? If so, I can understand it. I highly doubt he is though.. It's just one more thing to cry about...

Well, money is always a big thing with any job. A big-name coach won't turn down the job if enough dough is ponied up.....and thats what Bowles ie uncommunity college does well.

Bowles also has a big name and alot of resources (political as well as monetary)

UNC will go out of its way to get what they want. I grew up with Julius Peppers and played football with him in High School. He made a 720 on the SAT but got the brand new, fully loaded '98 Expedition from UNC anyway. Not only that but he got mad football gear, unc helmet and warmups for practice. I remember talking with him in middle school and he was leaning towards State and VaTech but after a few years his family's "financial situation" dissapeared and he's all of a sudden on unc's radar.

I'm telling you if NC State ever gets called out for ANYTHING infraction-wise and its led by a UNC alum, I've got all of this documented, with pictures and statements from Peppers. I'm not a backstabber but I have been a state fan forever. I'll do what i gotta do.

I still don't see how any of this is going to help UNC in their search at all. It's not like he is the end all for the $$$. They still have to vote on it if I'm not mistaken. He isn't a dictator.

Honestly, I don't doubt anything you say, but this sounds like an excuse that can be used if they happen to hire a good coach (which I still don't think they will)..

This is a desperation move on my part. Its not something that I want to come out with and make a stink while I'm trying to move up in the career world. It would take much more that what I have to make a huge impact. Peppers aunt and mother are good friends with my mother and grandmother too. Its a big personal deal as much as anything else.

correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't the UNC system board approve salaries for athletics? Erskine is the head of that board, that also rubber stamped his appointment to that position. That means that what Erskine wants, Erskine gets. Say hello to the highest paid coach in the country...and it's coming from your tax dollars.

You are correct and that is the conflict of interest and why we're in an uproar.

Plus, it shows mad favoritism from the "system" president. It's a sign of the way things will work if Bowles has his way.

Actually, that was only partly correct. No coach in the system will be getting paid any more by any school, which is currently set at a cap of $275,000.

The schools do not approve the endorsement deals, but they help to organize them. That is why Kay Yow gets $800,000 total per year, and Amato gets $750,000 total. (Sendek was getting $800,000).

But again, the only number that the system can affect is $275,000 base, and the Board of Governors is the group that votes on that, which Erskine Bowles is not a member of. He does not get a vote on that board.

So really folks, if all he does is talk about the position then he's not putting any undue influence on anything.

as far as I have seen so far he hasn't actually done anything...the only stuff is coming from pack pride, which I highly doubt knows what it is talking about.

Even if he does get involved, I am confident he will only do so as Erskine Bowles, graduate of UNC Chapel Hill, and not Erskine Bowles, UNC System President, which I don't see as a conflict at all...

are you jealous that he didn't help us out? why? would you want a chapel hill graduate helping us? are you afraid their coach might actually be good and still kick our asses?
