Dear Mark Hebert: please help Jim Ramsey with his foot-in-mouth disease. Maybe? They pay you enough and your job isn’t hard. So. Maybe just put some duct tape over his mouth and prevent him from texting and sending email, too?
Some things never change:
The budget timeline has the budget going to the Board of Trustees finance committee in May. That committee will forward it to the full board for approval in June. Ramsey drew a comparison between the university and the men’s basketball team.
“It was a challenging year for basketball,” he said. “Our team held in there and played with a lot of heart, character and determination.” In the face of continued state budget cuts that are coming despite the progress UofL is making in research, student education and community engagement, the university as a whole needs to try to be like the basketball team, Ramsey said.
Dear Jimbo: the team got its ass handed to it. We’re pretty sure the University of Louisville as a whole isn’t keen on losing.
