    I emailed him towards the end of mac's tenure and actually got a real reply. Can't say it was actually him and not one of his bag carriers but it was a real response. He addressed some of the points and concerns I brought up specifically. Funny enough, 3 weeks later mac was canned. I think the decision had already been made at that point so the response was easy.

    That's not nice to say. Especially not on his birthday, of all days.

      The last time I asked them to put a Pot smoking area in the south end zone they stationed a police at the end of my row.
      But what the hell its worth a try.

        Unfortunately I used up my voting-with-my-wallet privilege on Chump. Let's try a change.org campaign.

        My point is if you donate money as a Booster, and want there to be changes on this staff, then Stricklin needs to hear that you want changes or you will not donate more money. Silence is acceptance and no changes will occur. I don't care if I receive a response. I care that major changes to the staff are made.

              Thank you for sparing me by not changing it to Grantham’s mom. That would have ruined my day.

                Word was that after Steve expressed interest in obtaining his old job, Machen told him to "submit his resume."
                Steve did, but it was to South Carolina.

                  Whether it was Machen or Foley, it was classless and it cast both as callous idiots. The message was, sorry, you made the decision to leave. We’ve moved on and we have our guy and it’s not you. Move along.

                  As infinitesimally small as I think of Foley, I am forever convinced this antic was Machen’s doings. Hence why I went after him. In one email I compared his buffoonery to the university having a science opening and requiring Darwin to submit a resume. He probably didn’t care for that either.

                    Actually, I heard SOS pointed to the Trophy Case for Machen, when asked for his resume. He then walked out and into South Carolina.

                        Machen has no doubt been in therapy since those e-mails.

                            Is the resume story actually true or just an urban legend? I never really believed it actually happened.

                            I think anybody that donates money to big time college football needs to have their head examined. These universities make millions every year even before you add in revenue from athletics. Jeez, if you have so much money you can't think of anything useful to do with it just send it out here and I'll make sure it gets put to good use.

                              Probably some truth to it. One of the reasons Spurrier left was Foley not backing him up with the Dockett allegations. There was not a good relationship there at all. So the idea of JF being a little abrasive with the idea of a return is not unimaginable, especially considering it was Machen’s baby by then and all focus was on Meyer. I could easily see him doing it just to be a jerk.

                              Rumor is Spurrier was halfway to Kinkos with his camera-ready resume when his flip phone rang. It was South Carolina.
