    I see that 50% are NOT increasing their giving, which--I suppose--is not the result you were looking for. But in fairness to people here, a lot of them are on the hook for $4K to the gofundme now that Holtz is fired.

    What is a typical percentage of student body attendance? The AD should know that, I guess.

    Academia might be leftist turds but think about it from the perspective of a tax being levied to support an institution you don't care about and believe doesn't benefit you in any way.

    Made a contribution. Would challenge everyone to do the same.

    Went on Facebook to share the LTAC Facebook post. Interestingly, it appears LTACís social media presence is essentially non-existent. The post about new Cumbie contributions may have had one like and I was the first to share it. Surprising and concerning.

    This is how it works, right? You pay for what you want and like and you cut back for what you donít like.

    I second that, ďLetís go Brando... talking head... who cares.Ē

    Because we're going to have "mail-in" ballots during the election. I can GUARANTEE a victory.

    The lack of support isn't just about Holtz and the crappy brand of football he's been subjecting us to. It's about higher education in general, and its socialist teachings. I, like many other people, have stopped financially supporting higher education in any way, and I won't reengage until the socialists that are running all of higher education are overthrown.

    The same thing is happening at other schools. The WSJ had an article about it a couple of days ago.

    Re: Will you increase financial support in light of coaching change?

    brtansplant--I completely get what your saying and why---the serious leftists running our Universities is out of control, even at little ole Louisiana Tech. The very best--and I do mean the best--fundraiser at our University is a lady that raises money for the School of Business...since she came some 5 years ago, donations have soared through the roof--her "hustling" out there has been dynamic. Because I graduated from the school of business, and am also fairly good friends with the Business department head guy, do I "throw the baby our with the bathwater?" I have given this lots of thought...and have decided, no, I won't....I will continue to support them..., now, if this had been the "liberal arts" department", yes, I'd be done..there are a handful of bad apples in some of the departments voicing radical and leftist thoughts outside of and off of "company time"...it's sickening, but when you have tenure, and its not on school time, not much you can do...BUT...I hear ya, and I keep a close eye on things, as well as I am at a lot of events...it's a dynamic that changes all the time...our AD acting quickly on this football think(right or wrong) has likely saved some academic giving too, as sorry athletics does in fact have a direct impact on academic giving also...just my two cents..

    Lots of drivers behind the "Not increasing" responses, I'm sure.
