I got the call a few nights back, you know which one; "Hello, Mr. Murray this is (insert students name) from Texas Tech." He was a very nice kid, he followed his script perfectly and had just the right amount of "everything at Tech is great" tone in his voice. We chit chatted for several minutes, when he told me he was not in the College of Ag. (Mass Comm.)I tried to get him to switch majors.
And then came the big moment, you know what I'm talking about, "Mr. Murray, can we count on your support in the amount of $$$$ this year?" and he was still doing a very good job. So...I said, well, I'd like to but I have to ask if Mr. Hance, Mr. Bailey, and Mr. Myers are still employed at Tech. He responded with a little more than a slight chuckle, "Yes they are." So, I told him that as long as the they were employees at Tech, the University would not see any of my money.
He then told me that HE'D HEARD THE SAME THING FROM MOST PEOPLE HE'D TALKED TO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! HALLELUJAH!!!!!!!! I can only hope and pray that this information will turn a light bulb on in someone's head that change must happen. He told me that he did a report on each call and that he would definitely note my concern. Then I told him to change it from Mr. Hance, Mr. Bailey, Nd Mr. Myers to the three stooges. He really got a kick out of that.
Who knows if he does a report, let alone putting anything down other than he talked to me and I declined. I FELT BETTER!!!! No, actually I felt ENCOURAGED. I will never get over the pathetic and incompetent way they handled the entire Mike Leach debacle. I'd better stop now because I'm beginning to hear Battle Hymn of the Republic in the back of my head.....
STRIVE FOR HONOR, EVERMORE!!!!!!!
