I was doing some research and ran across this quote from University of Florida president J. Bernard Machen:
"If we are going to compete in something, we want to win at it - whether it is in pediatrics or women's gymnastics," said J. Bernard Machen, the University of Florida president. "It is important to our supporters, both financial and among our community. It is part of our culture. We want people to know that Florida is a place for winners."
Machen gets it! I couldn't help but think how motivated I would be to drastically increase my donations to UCLA if we had a leader who would make the same statement and acted on it with the same conviction. I'm convinced that whatever athletic success comes UCLA's way, it's in spite of Guerrero, and not because of him. I'm thankful for BN and the front pagers for your hard work and dedication to shining a light on the pathetic state of the Block/Guerrero's athletic department. We all agree that UCLA deserves better leaders. Machen's gives me a vision for what that leader would look like.
