So Ruth Watkins announced her resignation today.

How do we help the U find a replacement president with a burning hatred of Larry Scott who will fight for his ouster?

    Well, Ruth Watkins has to be the most worthless UofU president to be hired at the UofU. She makes Larry Scott look like a genius. Let’s start with a president who can actually do the job with character and ethics, than we can move onto the Larry Scott issue. The way she handled the Lauren McCluskey was beyond reproach.

      Beyond reproach means excellent, so I’m not sure that’s the right phrase.

        address (someone) in such a way as to express disapproval or disappointment.

          Idiom:

          above/beyond reproach

          So good as to preclude any possibility of criticism.

            Trailgoat must be using his reverse-thesaurus to expand his vocabulary.

          This is the correct definition for reproach.

      Trailgoat: this isn’t one you want to double down on. Utesby5 is correct. All you have to do is google “beyond reproach” to find out.

      That said, I very much agree with your sentiment. There was a definite leadership vacuum when everything with Lauren McCluskey was happening. Hopefully we become better in the process of getting someone new.

        So now that we’re off in the weeds… Back to my original question. How do we find an anti Scott president?

        • Central Coast Ute

          Ask the candidates if they like Larry Scott?

        • UtesRock

          Flood the board of Trustees with petitions the selectee must be anti Larry Scott.

    Probably not one of the questions the board of Trustees will be asking candidates for the university president. Would be hilarious to hear the answers to that question. Dr. … what do you think of Larry Scott’s performance and would you renew his contract? Who? President’s primary responsibility is to bring MONEY, NOTORIETY, and prestige to the University. While we are members of the PAC our President will vote in unison with all other Universities in the PAC and NOT RENEW his contract.

    Would one of you please outline the reasons for your desire for a Larry Scott ouster? I know who he is, but that’s the extent of my knowledge base regarding Mr. Scott.

      Wait…what, dude you’ve been on this board for a long time. How are you not aware of Larry Scott and his sh!t show?

      • Any fan of any PAC 12 school should know by now how the conference has been mismanaged, particularly the PAC 12 networks, football scheduling and refereeing debacles.
