Texas was a great school before Powers. Its not like he is the only man on the planet that can do this job.
The interesting part is Powers was moving very near retirement before this pissing match broke out, so Perry only extended his time as UT President.
Use your head. If the higher-ups are trying to force Powers out because they are pissed he won't agree to Perry's ridiculous ideas, do you think the next guy those same higher-ups hire will be willing to put up the same fight as Powers has?
Agree with everything DLev has had to say. That's beyond ridiculous to rate the performance of Powers based on athletics when he has given so much to UT in terms of academics. The academics of the university is 100x more important than athletics and without its academic standards the University loses its identity. I may be in the minority here, but I'd rather see Longhorn sports go to trash than see Perry muck up the value of UT's degree and education. Too bad some people just see what the Longhorns have to offer on the field on Saturdays.
you're asking someone who can't put together complete sentences to think critically about higher education.
I have never once said I wasn't for higher education. I never said I wanted Perry to succeed. I said I want Powers to do his job. It's time for the AD to go. Simple as that. Powers needs to make the move. It is part of his job. Not as critical as leading academics but nevertheless it is part of his job. If he can't handle it then someone else can.
You seem to be taking missing the point to new heights. It is not about the AD.
