Did the sun rise this morning? Did the FSU president, who famously urinates on the head of his schools' chief rival every day, really enjoy what happened last night? How does it feel? Are you happy with yourself?
Are you happy that you made it the primary goal of your presidency to be the "guy that picked Bowden's replacement?"
Are you happy that you let blind loyalty to an 80 year old man tarnish the rich tradition of the football program?
Are you happy that you're in danger of letting that blind loyalty cost you your desired legacy?
Are you happy that you tried everything you could to cover up, mislead, and misdirect people from our academic issue resulting in probably an even harsher sentence from the Committee on Infractions?
But hey, you did tell the NCAA to stick on that mascot thing. So you've got that going for you.
No, Mr. Wetherell, I think you have a different legacy. "The President that let UF pass FSU because he liked an old man." It's simple math really. 2 < 3. Notice the gator's mouth goes toward the bigger number? For the first time in history, Nole fans woke up this morning with fewer championships than either of their two primary rivals. And you were the guy in charge.
I guess you'll have all those great academic accomplishments that are strictly because of your leadership to fall back on, right? Wait... what? None there either? Oh.
It's ok. I mean really, in this day in age you get what you pay for. If Florida State doesn't pay you much they shouldn't expect much. What? $700,000 huh? Top 15 for public university presidents huh? Well dang.
I'm thinking maybe, for posterity's sake, that portrait of you that will inevitably line the halls of the Wescott building should show you wearing blue and orange. It's probably the only way future generations will understand just what you truly meant to this University.
