Response from Holbrook

Discussion in 'Buckeye Football' started by Brutus1, Nov 1, 2004.

    She finally send a response to my e-mail regarding the naming rights
    of 'The Game'.

    My letter to her said:

    Ms. Holbrook,
    Why didn't you have the brains to pull the plug on the SBC deal like the President at UM? It was just another in a long line of bad decisions you've made at the university.
    Why don't you attend the John Kerry rally and see if maybe he can find a position for you in his administration.
    Sincerely,
    Brutus1 (name)


    Her response was,

    "Mr Brutus,
    The president of University of Michigan was unaware of the proposal arrangement until I telephoned her and our legal counsel called theirs.

    Karen Holbrook"

    Is that a cop out garbage line or what? She's insinuating that she is somehow responsible for the cancellation. She's pathetic.

    That's funny. Both she and you spelled "od" instead of "of".

    What's that smell? Could it be bullshit?

    ouck off!

    What the heck are the chances of that happening twice. That was a good catch , though. I'll fix it.

    Uh, considering you made up the whole post, I'd say the chances are 100%

    CincyBuck88 Chad Henne is a b!tch

    Someone who is computer savy should start up a www.firekarenholbrook.com website. Similar tactics helped UF fans get Zook fired, who knows, it could only help.

    As a side note my friend dressed up as her for the game/Halloween. Everyone loved his costume, and tons of random people (students and alumni alike) stopped him for pictures.

    Dislike for this "lady" is spreading as everyone is realizing how bad of a university president she is for OSU.

    Does anyone have a feel for what the general opinion of her in the research/teaching areas of the school is?

    True or not, that's a good shot. :biggrin:

    MolGen--I don't think the faculty are particularly enamored by Holbrook, but I don't know for sure. What I do know is that the faculty at the University of Georgia, where she served as Provost, were very happy to see her go.

    I thought it was pretty funny at the IU game when she came onto the bigscreen with a public service announcement after Tressel's. All you could hear her say was, "Hi, I'm president Karen Holbrook..." and the crowd erupted into a chorus of Boos. So I'm aware of about 105,000 people who really don't like her. As for the researchers, I'm not sure... I thought OSU was only about the football! :wink:

    I was at the Indiana game when she appeared on the big screen and all the booing started. When it happened I wondered to myself that if she were actually there at the game and heard all those boos what kind of thoughts were going through her mind.
