So many good things to talk about regarding our program to dwell in the few negative. This post contributes to any negatives. Ill pass.
I forgot this is a sunshine board now..
Its all about attitude and approach to life. Those that succeed don't dwell on negatives. Learn from them? Yes, but move on. Our opposition would be happy to have this conversation with u. Go join them if u wish. I'm moving on and i dare say that the one's leading the university share my point of view. Carry on under ur cloud.
Team players dont get booted out of school
What about the tuna-loving women's basketball coach that we had a while back?
Actually, you didn't pass. You posted.
Spurrier...I appreciate him plenty
Thank you very much
Moe and another player burglarized a girl's dorm room, while she was sleeping. Moe's mama was a message board regular who got a lotta love (and actually probably made some cash) off of being moe's mama. He loudly proclaimed his innocence and played on the fanbase's sympathies until the rubber met the road and he pled guilty. Both of them then spent a lot of time publicly trashing the school, coaches, administration, etc., saying it was the school's fault for not giving moe sufficient guidance, that he had a learning disability and the school didn't help him enough, that the school threw him under the bus after he was arrested, etc. Then they filed a ridiculous lawsuit against the school over the whole thing (which got promptly tossed). They both represent the utter worst of a "it's everybody else's fault but mine" mentality that has been purged from our school with extreme prejudice, and I wish both of them nothing but miserable failure for the rests of their godforsaken existences.
I think this thread is helpful --- it should serve to illustrate for our younger fanbase how far we have come and how long it took us to do it, and maybe teach them to not take our present success for granted. Those who don't know history are doomed to repeat it. We are seemingly loaded up with high-quality citizens and I don't ever want to return.
Wasn't that Moe's mom who came to our tailgate selling her homemade barbecue sauce to help "her baby"? I bought a jar but tossed it. (that would be the old Gamecock Nation dot com).
I wholeheartedly disagree with the second sentence. I'm successful and if I don't dwell on the negatives, then I am doomed to fail by that hand. I've been self employed for about 30 years and if I have a very negative situation, (like a disgruntled employee for instance) it gets my undivided attention.
I don't however agree with the premiss for this thread because I don't necessarily think that a players' actions are a way of embarrassing the University. You try and evaluate a kid based on his performance on and off the field but you can't always take the "hood" out of the hoodlum. These guys are 17 and 18 years old when they start living on their own without supervision for the first time in their lives. Some are doomed to fail. Some are not.
What ticks me off is when grown men try to devalue their time at Carolina by bitching and moaning about the University failing to "do more for ex athletes." And yes, I'm talking about Corey Miller, Dr. Rick and that clown that co-sits with Corey. I doubt they bitched while taking advantage of all the allowable perks made available to the athletes.
Corey is more of an embarrassment to me than Garcia ever was. At least Garcia as acted grateful for the opportunity that he was given.
Actually, i did pass on talking negatively re: any of our players. Get it?
So, in the context of the original post, do you have meetings with your employees out of the blue to discuss negatively re: employees from several yrs ago? If so, i believe u could be more successful and ur employees don't want to hear it.
