I really dislike Ricketts. But, it is unfair to lump his comments in with Daub's. Sure, he said it was "disgraceful," and I would prefer he just take the higher ground on stuff like this, but he also indicated it was their right to protest. Daub, the eternal bully, decided to use his position to imply a threat. Ricketts was expressing his opinion. Daub abused his office and demonstrated a clear lack understanding of what that position is, or what the mission of a university is. I remember disliking Daub back when he was a Congressman and I was in eighth grade. There is something surreal about him trying to intimidate one of my daughter's friends 30 some years later. How often do regents run for re-election? He needs to get retired.
