Good to know that 2 are pretty minor. And glad Gene took the time to respond.

i took it as him sharing facts with you, not excuses. :|
I swear you sit at your computer, lying in wait, until I comment, just to shit all over anything, and everything I say.
don't think so highly of yourself so as to think that i wait for your posts to respond. i have no clue who you are, what you've said in the past, nor do i give a crap. i was responding to what the a.d. said to you which i found forthright and factual.

After the brawl at Allen, I wrote a letter to AD Taylor. I brought up the unsporting penalties by the football team as well. He assured me things were under control. Uh-huh.
I sent an email to AD Taylor this week and this was the reply I received:

"I appreciate you sharing your concern and Coach Klieman and I share your concerns. He will address this not only with the athletes that got in trouble but also with the entire team.

I will say that two of the young men’s transgressions were very minor although the article made it out to be much more. One you man was charged for failure to appear based on a ticket he received in the fall for not having proof of insurance and the other young man, although pulled over for suspicion of DUI his breath test was very below the limit and was released and given a ticket for a minor.

We still don’t want this happening and it will be addressed."


I am more than a little concerned regarding the message in this reply. The "boys will boys" tone of the middle paragraph in particular. And I sent this after the report of the total of 5 idiots being arrested. All he needed to say was the first couple sentences. That's it. Don't get me wrong. I greatly appreciate him replying to me at all. I am sure he is a busy dude. But making excuses for ANY of it is a bit perplexing to me. Especially from a military leader, that I am sure, didn't put up with a damn thing.
I agree with you that sometimes less is more. I’m surprised he responded at all unless you are a significant donor.
