In need of dispensation!

First let me say that it has been incredible to have this place of respite to come to over the past weekend to escape the constant media bombardment precipitated by the heinous acts committed on Friday. I learned the news as I was about to post this and was really too addled to continue at that time.

I've been reveling in the, ecstasy, and overall blissful fervor of the posts and comments for the last few days. As others, I feel that this is without question, the best possible selection for the University from an athletic perspective. The larger cathartic/ healing effect is, I believe, just as important and for this I thank Mr Hocutt sincerely.

To this end; I am requesting dispensation from a vow that I made in response to Coach Leaches firing.

The story of the attempts that I made to gain clarity for the decisions that brought the administration to the conclusion that this action was indeed the best for the University is inconsequential at this point. This quest did, however, precipitate my vow that no longer would any of my contributions to higher education go to my Alma mater, until such time as blame for the wrong that was done was accepted by the administration, or until Mr. Hance retired or was removed from his position (was hoping for the latter). For the past 3 years I have supported only the Universities attended by my children, Brown, SMU, And UT (the last two as you might imagine leave a bad taste in my mouth).

I have not been a detractor or negative voice against the past coaching regime as they were thrown into this untenable warped situation and there was no upside for them to exploit. Please understand that I exist in a much more "Black and White" world than do most. I have always lived by three social rules: 1) Don't lie to me 2) Don't lie about me 3) Do the right thing!!! The third has caused me grief and kept me sane.

Pursuant to the events of the past week I am now clearly torn by my wish to renew my full support (w/o support for the Chancellor) for the University where I grew up and received my education, and this vow that I made.

My hope is that someone can provide the wise counsel, or flying front kick, necessary to convince me that because of the monumental nature of the occurrences of the last week I now have dispensation from the social laws that I live by. I'm ready to come home!
