I don't think everyone understands or appreciates what Nik did here. He heightened the dialogue in a respectful and fair manner. How did he do this? He gathered opinions from fans by actively soliciting both PROS and CONS to firing Embree. Yes, I said that correctly. He compiled a list representing arguments from both sides of that fence. He encouraged Buffs to share their opinions--regardless what they were--with Regents, The AD, The Chancellor and The President. He wanted the fans' voices to be heard. While he actively shared his own opinion, he still sought to engage the opinions of those that disagreed with him. When Nik perceived that the local media had a bias grounded by a vendetta against Mike Bohn for firing GB, and further fueled by SID talking points, Nik went out of his way to work with local media outlets to ensure that other opinions were represented as well. He tried very hard to balance the public discourse. Ultimately he wanted this to be about a fair and open dialogue. He was in no way the leader of some group-think resistance as he has been unfairly portrayed. If Nik's opinions weren't your own, fine. He was respectful of yours, it would be great if you returned the favor. Nice job, Nik. Thanks for your efforts to ensure that the fans' views weren't trampled in this dialogue.
