    So NOW we find yet another ‘national search’ by the “sports-versity” for a position that has remain unfilled for more than a year!!!! Wonder what would happen if the basketball coaching position remained unfilled for more than a year. I doubt the Board of Cadavers (as Novena calls it) would allow THAT to happen, because they wouldn’t have a game to see from their chair on the floor.

    “An Academic Fantasy at UofL”

    Since the Med School “leadership” position has remained vacant, this might be the time to perform a supreme academic fantasy: Don’t hire. Just prop up a manikin in front of a computer. Since a year has gone by already without missing a “leader,” why not?

    “Waterfalls at Belknap”

    Good planning, guys. Go ahead and build it without any cost plan. The campus drains money like water anyway, so why not a waterfalls? And this while raising tuition yet again? Give students a damn break.

    So, Kentucky has the worst state funded pension plan in America at 23% of required funding. Seems like I remember someone reporting that this debilitating ‘event’ of underfunding got its big ‘push’ when a guy (who was the state finance guru) suggested it to Governor Patton as a short-term cure to balance the budget. Seems like I remember that was none other than Ole Comb-over Jim.

    Man has he effed up virtually everything he’s touched in the last 14 years.

    “Jimbo’s Fatal Legacies”

    Yes, Highlander, he has effed up two huge institutions: the KY retirement system and UofL. Yet the Board of Cadavers continues to give him big bucks and lucrative contracts that go on and on. One thing he has not effed up: the $ sign on his own forehead–it sticks to him like glue.

    Novena: What the ‘sports-versity’ needs is a scholar-administrator and not a neveau-rich guy with a temper, a bad hair-do with a $ sign tatooed on his forehead.
