A Category-5 Firestorm @ Dowdy Ficklin

That Hurricane headed up The Coast might be needed to cool down the wildfire ablazing down in G-vegas a/k/a Greenville. Aaarrrgghh. …Angry Pirate. Shiver me timbers, matey.

Dr Leo Jenkins and Coach Stas are spinning in their graves. Steve Logan sips a glass of Ernest & Julio’s finest while searching his Al McGuire’s Greatest Sports Quotes for a pithy zinger to describe it all

Those One-eyed One-horned Flying Purple People are rompin and stompin and ready to bite the heads off a handful of sniveling little Band Geeks dressed up as Jack Sparrow’s gay cousin Bruce. Woe unto any ECU administrators who might get in their way.

I know many (most) of you are beyond “fit to be tied” over what happened last Saturday at ECU and the knee-jerk reaction of Chancellor Staton.  At least consider there was more to it than the “get a rope” mob is assuming.  Give Cecil Staton a chance to “get it right”.  IMO, he deserves at least a chance.

Last Saturday – October 1 – (some) members of The East Carolina Marching Band chose to “take a Kaepernick” as they joined their fellows in playing The National Anthem prior to the ECU v Central Florida football game. …. The actual number has been described as “some” ….. “a few” ….. “a bunch” ….ECU Band “too damned many” …. and “19”. We are going with “19” out of well over 150 band geeks dressed up as Jack Sparrow’s gay cousin Bruce.

The ECU Marching Band probably has some grandiose silly nickname like all marching bands give themselves – The Purple Power Sound of Pitt County or some such.

I really like East Carolina Univ. I’ve had many friends who went there. I appreciate the regional schools – like ECU – that concentrate on serving the specific population within 100 miles…. supplying teachers, bankers, family doctors, small business owners, and lots of salt-of-the-earth mammas and daddies that are the lifeblood of what we used to call “America”. The one Obama and Hillary have sworn to destroy.

….. And LOTS and LOTS of PDEWs. That’s Pretty DownEast Women as all you BobLee Buddies well know. …. YOWSA!

I’ve always thought ECUers had a pretty realistic perspective on their school’s purpose and the pride it takes in serving that purpose. Unlike “some schools” that must inflate their school’s self-worth to validate their own fragile egos.

Those 19 kneeling band geeks have ECU’s administration – faculty – alumni – fans – boosters and old men sitting around cracker barrels in Ayden, Grifton and Grimesland all aflutter.

By contrast…. 19 freakin’ band geeks amid the pines in UNCCH’s Kenan Stadium would not merit a burp or a snort.

The majority of UNCCH’s alumni and fans long ago became numb to such stoopid crap by “band geeks” …. “Peaceniks” …. “Commies” …. “Social justice warriors” …. “Save the whales wackos” …. “Chick-fil-a Haters” …. “Free Mandellers” …. “Impeach Nixon” …. “Boycott NIKE” …. “Deify Dean” …. “Fire Mary Willingham / Disembowel Dan Kane” …. Blah blah yadda yadda….

Rumor has it “they” are considering replacing The Old Well as UNCCH’s symbol with:  …. a votive candle held by a sniveling snowflake of indeterminate gender with a bad complexion, weak chin and a cheap haircut…. standing next to a yappy little Chihuahua wearing a dozen lapel ribbons.

97% of UNCCH alumni / fans have to hold their noise while singing Hark The Sound. The insanity of the other 3% has become the stereotype for all 100%. It is what it is what it is …..

Maybe THAT is why the ECU “faithful” are in such a hizzy fit….. over 19 freakin’ band geeks dressed like Jack Sparrow’s gay cousin Bruce.

…. Is ECU in danger of becoming a downeast country cuzzin version of the dreaded UNCCH? – A motley collection of ideological fruits and nuts running amuk.

That horrible thought surely raced thru the minds of the Purple-clad GOBs (Good Ol’ Boys) in Dowdy Ficklin as they watched those 19 Freakin’ Band Geeks doing “a Kaepernick” while dressed as Jack Sparrow’s gay cousin Bruce. …. “Jose, Can You See…. what those sorry no-count little commie-pissants are doing?”

I had a spy in the Chancellor Box at Dowdy Ficklin.  Actually it was one of BobLee’s fabled “inside sources” that always seem to be on-site whenever s*** hits a fan.  It hit last Saturday.  …. How does BL do that?cecilstaton1

I have it on impeccably reliable first-hand report that ECU Chancellor Cecil Staton went BALLISTIC !!! Had he had his hands around one of  those 19 geeks’ pencilneck, he’d alikely wrung it.

Background: Cecil Staton has been ECU’s Chanc less than a year. The raging left-wing nutjobs on ECU’s faculty don’t like him because he is NOT “a raging left-wing nutjob” like they are. I’ve never met Cecil Staton but I LIKE HIM because a number of guys I trust have met him and stand by him…. Alas:

In the moment on Saturday…. Chancellor Staton pulled “a General Custer”. He made a gawdawful strategic miscalculation which, alas, is still reverberating across PirateNation.

His personal rage notwithstanding, Cecil Staton opted to release a PC-gushy statement immediately (always a mistake) that he thought might appease that faculty nutjob faction that hates him. He was wrong.  It was the standard boilerplate:

I’m paraphrasing….. “At ECU we proudly encourage diversity, inclusion, safe places, freedom to express opinions and support stoopid moronic causes even when our dim-witted students have no F-in clue what they are talking about ….. blah blah blah …….”  Uh Oh!

Not only do the faculty nutjobs still hate Cecil Staton… he, at least temporarily, lost the support of every GOB in PirateNation. Yo Cecil…. check out a Dowdy Ficklin parking lot…. LOTs of F-150s and Dodge Rams with gun-racks and I Love Trump bumperstickers. My kinda folks!

Chanc Staton quickly realized his hasty PC-statement had thrown jet fuel on the kneeling band geek bonfire. Facebook and Twitter became a Tsunamic Wildfire of OUTRAGE…. With more than a few suggesting anatomical impossibilities for the well-intended Cecil Staton.

By Dawn’s Early Light on Sunday…. Chanc Staton began the clean-up of the glorious mess he had just contributed to. Cecil had assorted administrative underlings issue statements decidedly less standard Academic PC-drivel.

Those secondary statements may have prevented roving bands of flannel-shirted ECU frat boys carrying baseball bats from hunting down anyone dressed like Jack Sparrow’s gay cousin Bruce with grass stains on one knee.  Oh MY!

Did I mention that ECU’s football team got blown out by Central Florida?  That might have contributed to the general grumpiness of the assembled 50,000 very angry Purple People.

As many ECU faithful rush to “da beach” to batten down their hatches for the approaching storm…. No one is quite sure What’s Next.

The next home game is next Thursday against Navy. …. not a good choice for the snively band geeks.

FWIW: a self-appointed spokesman for the ECU faculty nutjobs reaffirmed that, indeed, they all still hate Cecil Staton… and always will “just because”.

I really hope PirateNation will cut Cecil Staton just a bit of slack. Yes, he shouldna oughta issued that knee-jerk PC-drivel but he did. A card laid IS a card played….. I’m pretty sure he learned a valuable lesson.

If Cecil actually does wring a couple of those 19 geeks’ pencilnecks at midfield next week…. Will that help?

##

We haven’t worked out all the techno-issues but we will very soon.   You will find AgentPierce right here…. whether you like him or not!   Yessiree!

Oh Boy… Oh Boy… I see tonight that that old scoundrel Rev William “Bully” Barber has jumped in to this. I’m gonna guess that a high % of the Pirate alum/fans that are upset about the 19 band geeks ARE NOT big fans of Ol’ Bully… nor is “Bully” fans of them.

Any time Ol’ Bully gets to rompin and stompin you can bet his media puppets – The N&O and WRAL will be all over it. If you thought this was a Wild & Crazy Circus BEFORE …. it just ramped up A LOT. YEEEEE HAA!

A nation hating incompetent chancellor who can’t understand the difference between the right to individual free speech and the responsibilities that come with wearing a uniform in an official capacity is not deserving of his position. His stain must be lifted. Staton must go. In the meantime perhaps all Federal aide and grants should be withheld?

Agent Pierce

Agent Pierce

Obviously I don’t agree, George… but I DO understand your strong reaction. Prior to last Saturday, had Cecil Staton done/said anything in his tenure at ECU to cause you to dislike him so? Did you even know his name or could you recognize his picture? … Again, I can appreciate such a reaction from the series of events on Saturday.
.
Since our current “Federal” administration would strongly support the actions of the 19 band geeks, I doubt anyone in Obama’s administration is concerned. Which former ECU Chancellors or other university chancellors in the UNC System do you “like”?

In response to NCSU68Randy’s musings about Andy Griffith, word around Manteo was he was a lib. Matter of fact he appeared in a pro-Obama commercial in 2008 starring and produced by Ron Howard.

Agent Pierce

AG was MOST DEFINITELY a quite constipated Democrat and did do several promos for Democ candidates (after his retirement). I vaguely recall the Obama ad. He was also reportedly quite a cantankerous “old coot”. He was Manteo’s most “famous” resident in his later years; but not so beloved by the locals. In his defense, he might have simply gotten tired of everyone expecting him to “BE Andy Taylor” in real life.

He actually played Ben Matlock twice as long as he was Sheriff Andy as far as years in production, but, of course, “Mayberry” lives on forever.

Mea Culpa, I should have left the Sheriff Taylor reference there. I DO remember the AG for OMG Bummer….and knew that AG was indeed one of the MORE ENLIGHTENED attendees (did he graduate and that is a SIMPLE question?) of UNC. Did not realize that little Opie or whatever his name was in “The Music Man” produced it… Also note today that RevBB has jumped (OK, bad – BAD – B>A>D illusion) in the fray. Citing the Constitution….OK….that is a POINT well taken. It is the RIGHT to protest. However, the issue, which I think finally lead to the statement,… Read more »

I’m speculating on the shelflife of BandGeek-gate. Assuming there are no secret tapes of Cecil Staton planning the whole shebang for months, I give it til the Navy Game next Thursday. One can assume the entire stadium will be glued to the field and watching each geek with an intensity never seen before. If one knee even starts to bend there could be “an incident”.

You are probably correct. Jimmy G’s teleprompter writers had comments about Tuten Totin’. Also about the ECU Band’s RIGHTS. Failed to mention that Chanc Staton had reversed his position. Staton did make the “Sylvia Hatchell Ceremonial Toss Under the Solar Powered Bus” maneuver. He let the Director take the lead and face the “This is UN-Constitutional” throng of seething Sound Bite and HRC supporters. WRALib did NOT mention the $1,000,000 fallout due to the protest. BUT, they did point out that all the high hauty haut eaters and gas passers (both orifices) will NOT be coming to NC due to… Read more »

AP—I hope you are right about Staton, but I don’t hold out much hope. The Republicans on the Board of Governors and those holding trustee slots at ECU are known to be either politically clueless or outright protective of the liberal university regime. Alumni might be upset, but Staton will get no pressure from the state’s Republican establishment. The entire UNC system is geared up for this election like never before and is driving the Democrat machine across the state. The Republicans don’t have a clue. Election day is going to be a bloodbath. We are going to wake up… Read more »

That dire prediction might indeed come to pass. But I have more confidence in the current BOG than you do. Under Trainwreck Fennebresque is was indeed dysfunctional. That galoot was the Dickie Baddour of BOG Chairmen. But he is gone… there are several fine Chancs in the system. The guy at UNC-W is top-notch. And I still have hope that Staton can recover from this mess… but maybe not. Randy at NCSU is solid. “Chihuahua” Folt at UNCCH is a tiny little “empty suit” for sure.

In case you’re wondering… have I heard about ECU Professor Tracy Tuten? Yes, I have read several news reports about her and her reaction to BandGeek-gate (Am I the first to call it that?).
.
I have no opinion worth stating. I know NADA about Prof Tuten, her history around ECU, et al. No sure exactly what her POV is …. my only thought is she might consider switching to Decaff.
.
I have seen where she and the Campus Cops HAVE reached an agreement that she will NOT “be carrying” around campus. More info if I get any …..

Tuten ain’t gonna be Totin’?

If you saw the picture on Plott Hound and then her video on WNCT or whatever, it was like 20 years difference. BUT, at least she brought a little clarity to the subject.

He now has his own byline on the N&O’s sports spot on their web page. What is he weighing in on…..That’s right….The ECU marching band.

I’m not sure Prof Tuten merits recognition as a major player in all this.

The professor’s FB indicates she is indeed an ECU professor of advertising & social media, speaker, trainer, author, skin care sales rep,(Rodan+Fields) puppy mom. I guess she could show you how to field strip your weapon and sell you some exfoliating creams as well, all while wearing her Louboutin stilettos and skinny jeans impressing and recruiting you to be a R+F rep which is the real purpose of the invite.

Stanton screwed the pooch on this deal. In his position, a knee jerk is not the reaction he is being paid to produce. If his initial reaction was to wring the necks of the perps, then his statement should have shown some intent towards that end. His PC statement was like something right out of the liberal playbook. Sending surrogates out to cover up the steaming pile of poo is bush league. I congratulate the ECU alumni, BOG, and fans for raising one very angry voice.

Saturday was a sad day for Eastern North Carolina, but Pirate Nation arose to smite injustice, and I tip my hat to them. A smaller (2 members) protest occurred at my beloved Carter-Finley Stadium, so small that no one noticed until a picture popped up the next day. I am glad Chancellor Staton issued a more thoughtful release concerning the inappropriateness of those actions. I firmly support those students right to protest, whether I agree with the issues or not (and I usually DO NOT!). Many Americans (including my namesake, my father’s oldest brother, an N C State graduate killed… Read more »

If they didn’t pay you guys so much to be BOGs it would be a helluva job, huh? – (STOP: BOG members get NADA except state employee travel expenses which most BOG members don’t bother to submit). My point about how ECUers responded to “this crap” as opposed to UNCCHers is, I think, a fascinating comparison. UNCCHers of the NOT Lib loonie persuasion are numb to their crap. They UNCCHers don’t even bother to discuss it. You NCSU guys are in-between UNCCH and ECU in both geography and institutional ideology. … I hope Staton can come out of this OK… Read more »

On Monday the director of Athletic bands for ECU came out with a statement that the kneeling geeks actions would not be tolerated going forward. In the meantime there has been talk behind the scenes to get Navy’s band to play the SSB in their upcoming game. It would help if Coach Mo can get win sometime soon.:)

If “the University” gets too heavy-handed with the geeks you can bet the ACLU goons will jump in. I’m sure they are primed to do so. … It is a fascinating socio-political conundrum – an almost “perfect storm” of a controversy; as is HB2.

I like to think I “see both sides” although I am very much “anti-geek” of course.

Hmm. Always enjoy your insights AP, but I’m wondering about how reliable BobLee’s source is on the report of the chancellor going ballistic when a professor at ECU apparently not only met with said chancellor before/during the game, but also claims to have first-hand knowledge beforehand that the “protest” was going to take place.Tracey Tuten, who apparently teaches in the ECU College Of Business, took him to task in a letter. The exchange was reported here: http://bearingarms.com/jenn-j/2016/10/04/band-members-take-a-knee-university-professor-takes-a-gun/ Perhaps the grog at the Pirate Admiral’s table has gone to his head?

It was fairly common knowledge at the management level the Monday BEFORE the game that this was intended by some members so the Chancellor and anyone he wanted to consult had a work week to deal with what transpired. Any anger in the VIP box by the Chancellor was insincere. He even tweeted praising the band shortly after their Anthem performance. Must have been great acting in reaction to fan reaction if he feigned anger at the band. Funny what a cascade of boos can do to your Ivy best laid plans.

“BobLee’s guy” was in the Chancellor’s Box and, according to him (our insider guy), “with Staton” when IT happened. This guy has “cred” is all I can say and has never steered us wrong.

If “our guy” comes back wth other info, I will certainly pass it along.

After living four years in gvegas I am not surprised at the furor of “the fans”. This is not to be confused with the students who are much closer to their brethren at the flagship than you would believe. Then again half the school now are transplants from Jersey who decided uptown is more fun than Pascataway on a Saturday night. Of course if ECU had WON then this storm doesn’t garner strength from the flapping wings of a butterfly or in this case the flapping gums of Chester in Chocowinity calling the 5th quarter.
