All IU alumni are eligible to vote in the trustee election! I encourage you to read the bios and make your own decision on who you think will be best for the university!

This is one of those things we should vote for if we desire change. One of the candidates, Brian Davidson, is very clear that he supports keeping BIG network revenues in the athletic department. If that matters to you then please vote.

I believe voting ends on June 28th, so vote now.

Yeah, I was trying to keep my personal opinions out of it, so that's why I encouraged reading bios.

I totally agree but I think a more significant change needs to be changing the compliance department from a self police force to more of a protection detail. 

They need to be helping the teams be compliant not trying to catch them cheating.

Very true but we can't elect the compliance department. This is an area where bum message board posters like us can have an actual effect.

Who hires the compliance department?  I imagine the board of trustees has some control over that.

The compliance department acts directly under the supervision of Fred and what he wants. His office is the sole source of the compliance guidelines, which is how to connect the dots back to the BoT.

Fred went on the radio a couple of months ago and said he wants to win as much as anyone yet oversees a compliance department that is adversarial to the interests of the teams. Carnival barker.

I’m a little shocked he didn’t at least win the digital. She must have some serious connections. 

More general disinterest than connections. According to IUAA, there are 690,000 IU grads, I assume all are eligible to vote. Going by the results tweet, that means a whopping 2% voted.

Lack of interest shouldn’t favor one candidate over the other though

I'm sure the majority of the voting population were long time members of the good ol' boys & girls club though. That's one thing the cronies do well is stick together in protecting their own interests.

Indiana University will never change.   I hate this.

If football and especially basketball keep losing the university will be forced to make changes or at least answer to the public. It’s unbelievable that missing the tournament 7 of the last 11 seasons hasn’t resulted in any introspection by the administration. Do they like losing? They just don’t care.

We've been saying this for years. It's never going to change. This school just sucks at managing its most profitable athletic programs.
