Ruth Shaw = perfection

[B]When I read the headline of the Charlotte Observer's April 1 editorial – “Can UNCC have it all in a recession?” – I thought it had been mistakenly placed on the opinion page instead of the April Fool's page.[/B]

[B][U]A simple phone call to UNC Charlotte would have avoided the misstatement[/U][/B] that we are attempting to raise $45 million for football. We have adjusted the fundraising goal to $20 million by scaling back the football operations facility to a pre-engineered structure and by scratching the proposed new full-scale football stadium in favor of modifications to the existing Belk Track and Field Stadium to accommodate football.

excellent rebuttal - especially with Schulken canned

Ruth Shaw is awesome.

About time someone from the school spoke up and told them to shut the **** up.

how about this zinger!

[SIZE=5][COLOR=Green]Most disturbing is the false choice raised by the final line of your piece: “Losing academic scholarships and raising money for UNC Charlotte football? Not compatible.” Ridiculous[/COLOR][/SIZE].
:thumbsup::grin::clap:

Shaw Field at Belk Stadium!

Shaw Field at Belk Stadium!

another DANDY:

Donors have different interests, and [U]some who support academic scholarships might not donate one dime to athletics.[/U] Others support athletics, but not scholarships. Some support both. This is not an “either/or” question. [B]The Observer does the university, its students, and the community a disservice to present it that way. [/B]

Because I disagreed with one of your posts you think that I’m a faithful Observer defender. I admit, sometimes people on here take it too far, but I also realize how unfair and biased articles about our University or athletic programs are in the O.
I always want what is best for the University and I applaud Shaw’s letter.

Aye

I like this. Hopefully the Observer is turning.

I made sure Ms. Shaw knew how much I enjoyed her response!:thumbsup:
