Your AD has spoken

TO THE TOP
I’M IN – WE’RE ALL IN


ENTHUSIASM
Over the past 7 months, and despite any challenges of the moment, not a day has passed where I haven’t found something to get excited about within our Department of Athletics. Every single day! In over 24 years within the industry, I have never held such high enthusiasm. With all my heart, I feel that Southern Miss Athletics holds incredible potential for excellence and achievement.

With this in mind, on August 16th we held an All-Staff and Coaches Meeting for the Department of Athletics. The purpose of that meeting was to gather as a group, recommit to our Mission and Guiding Principles, address key issues, and share the direction of our Department through 2017, and beyond. On that day, I shared my enthusiasm with our Staff and Coaches, and I extended an invitation across our entire Department…                                                                               

I’M IN – ARE YOU IN?
At our meeting, I invited our Staff and Coaches to join our Annual Fund. Plain and simple – this fund provides vital support for our Departmental operating expenses throughout the year. But more than that, the Annual Fund holds the potential to advance and enrich our program in so many new ways.

As we began the I’M IN Campaign, 34 of 144 Staff, Coaches and Graduate Assistants were already members (special thanks to that group). Yet as of Friday 10/6, we have 100% participation across the Department – with over 100 new Members!

As we call upon our Donors and Prospective Donors to share our Needs Report, I cannot think of a more powerful statement than the fact that our own Staff and Coaches, as well as our Graduate Assistants, are IN! I am proud and honored to state: I’M IN – WE’RE ALL IN!

AS WE MOVE FORWARD
As we move forward, please know that I am personally involved on a daily basis with Major Donors, Prospective Donors, Eagle Club Members, and Prospective Eagle Club Members. As I make the visits and meet with these individuals, I can’t wait to thank current members, and share the fact that our own Department Staff and Coaches believe in our Mission, Guiding Principles and plans for our future, and that they support our Department through Eagle Club membership.

THE MEANING OF MEMBERSHIP
If you are already a member of the Eagle Club, our deepest thanks! And if you are a prospective member, I hope that you will consider joining in this month of October. I do understand that your personal resources are precious, and as such, I am not concerned so much with the amount of your gift, as I am interested in your participation and commitment to our work within the Department. My hope is that you would recognize your gift acknowledges that our work carries great meaning – as we support the educational mission of the University through our work with Student-Athletes. Your participation helps to make us a success and a point of pride within the community.
IN CLOSING
In closing, I’d like to invite you to develop a meaningful relationship with our Department of Athletics.
If you would like to become a member of our Eagle Club as a part of our I’M IN Campaign, please stop by our Development Office (or my office) at any time – or feel free to contact Caroline Bevillard within our Athletics Development Office. Caroline is coordinating this project for us and her number is (601) 266-5299.

As I have shared with my Staff and Coaches, our future looks bright if we continue to make progress each and every day. On behalf of our Staff, Coaches and great Graduate Assistants … I’M IN – WE’RE ALL IN!

Hope you’re IN soon!

(TOGETHER) TO THE TOP!

ENTHUSIASM
Over the past 7 months, not a day has passed where I haven’t laughed my ass off at the ineptitude of this University. Every single day! In over 24 years within the industry, I have never witnessed such a clusterfuck. With all my heart, I feel that Southern Miss Athletics will be lucky to sustain a division one program long enough for me to find a  job elsewhere like Lucky Charm did.

With this in mind, on August 16th we held an All-Staff and Coaches Meeting for this circus. The purpose of that meeting was to coerce and intimidate colleagues to ante up.  On that day, I shared my concern about the dire condition of the department, with specific instructions to keep pumping sunshine and not further the situation to the sheep under the threat of their lives.                                                                           

I’M IN – ARE YOU IN?
At our meeting, I told our Staff and Coaches they had joined an Annual Fund. Plain and simple – this fund provides vital support for our Departmental operating expenses throughout the year. But more than that, the Annual Fund holds the potential to advance and enrich our program in imaginary ways, i.e., we have no finite plans, just do as your told.

As we began the I’M IN Campaign, 34 of 144 Staff, Coaches and Graduate Assistants were already members (special thanks to that group). Yet as of Friday 10/6, we have 100% participation across the Department – with over 100 new Members, so I've authorized myself an all expense paid vacation to Tahiti !!

As we call upon our Donors and Prospective Donors to share our Needs Report, I cannot think of a more powerful statement than the fact that our own Staff and Coaches, as well as our Graduate Assistants, are IN! I am proud and honored to state: Aloha Suckers!

AS WE MOVE FORWARD
As we move forward, please know that I am personally planning my flight and lodging arrangements. I can’t wait to thank current members, and share the photos of my time on the beach with Samoan women without tops under the guise of guiding principles and plans for our future, and that they support me through extorting these funds.

THE MEANING OF MEMBERSHIP
If you are already a member of the Eagle Club, you're a dumbass! And if you are a prospective member, I hope that you will consider joining in this month of October as my visa card  is billed 11-1. I do understand that your personal resources are precious, and as such, I am not concerned, as I am interested in wondering what are the prime tanning hours in Papeete. My hope is that you would ignore common sense and contribute as they will not waive the extra luggage fee per the United representative. Your participation helps to make my attitude better as I update my resume'.

IN CLOSING
In closing, I’d like to invite you to follow me on twitter as I build sand castles and snorkel in the beautiful Pacific water. If you would like to contribute to my dolphin encounter side trip please stop by or my office at any time – or feel free to contact Caroline Bevillard within our Athletics Development Office. Caroline is hoping enough funds are raised so she may come along.

As I have shared with my Staff and Coaches, my future looks bright if it doesn't rain. On behalf of our Staff, Coaches and great Graduate Assistants … I’M IN –  AND CAROLINE MAY BE TOO!

Hope you bring cash soon!

IF, HOPE, AND MAYBE!

Re: Your AD has spoken

> At our meeting, I invited our Staff and Coaches to join our Annual Fund

Ugh, this shit again? I feel like we just went through this with Hammond

Dude, you're not going to fund the department on the backs of your own staff. Even asking them to join is a terrible idea. It sets up this weird work environment where people compete to be the most loyal Eagle Club members instead of competing to be the best at their jobs. If I were AD, I'd prohibit my full-time employees from making donations, for that reason. My message would be, "keep your money; your contribution is doing a good job.".

Hammond was an amateur, so it didn't surprise me when he started hectoring his own staff into donating. This guy is supposedly an experienced professional. He ought to know better.

That said, this is far from the first indication I've seen that this guy is an incompetent wackjob. Sad how poorly we seem to hire ADs. We've had at least four consecutive failures in that area.

FIXED IT FOR YOU, JON......

TOGETHER

ACTION
Southern Miss Athletics holds incredible potential for excellence and achievement. If we don't fight for what we 'stand for' with our passionate and honest actions, do we really 'stand' for anything?  I am not creating a new slogan or a "look over here campaign", I am diligently working each day on actionable and measurable goals and substantial initiatives that will disrupt our long standing narrow path of complacency.

I discussed my goals with our Staff and Coaches, and I shared these goals across our entire Department… I will share these directives with the Golden Eagle Nation within the next 30 days.  As I made it crystal clear to my team, “If your actions don't live up to your words, you have nothing to say.”                                                                             
 
AS WE MOVE FORWARD
I am personally involved on a daily basis with Major Donors, Prospective Donors, Eagle Club Members, and Prospective Eagle Club Members, students and other leaders across our athletic landscape.....speaking, listening, learning and planning.

IN CLOSING
I ensure you we are going to elevate our brand on a national level within the next 12 months.
If you would like to discuss how you can assist with our goals, please stop by my office at any time – or feel free to contact me directly within our Athletics Development Office.

As I have shared with my Staff and Coaches, our future is bright. We will continue to make progress each and every day. I always knew a good man should do no bad deeds, but it never occurred to me that a good man must do good deeds. We cannot just sit back and do nothing. We cannot just relax and let things happen around us. We must act or his faith is meaningless, mere words or thoughts.



TOGETHER

Jon

Of course .. Which is all this is. All department heads / pillow counters are "encouraged" to coerce employees to contribute even if it's only $1 annually. Then they can crow about "100% participation" and tell upper management what a great job of motivating employees they're doing.

I'm sure Giblet ran over to Flamingo's nest and told him what a good boy he was and everyone was "All In"  ... When reality is many of them are "all in" the SUV headed to Oxford and Baton Rouge tomorrow.

If the AD wanted to raise some real money, he would steal that idea right there and organize a capital campaign for the Yurt around it. Folks would be crawling out of the woodwork.

Re: Your AD has spoken

When I still worked at a large bank, I pissed everyone off by not donating to that bullshit United Way scam.  They said, "don't you want to wear a Tshirt and jeans to work"?  I said, fuck no, this is a GD bank, not a HS dress-up day!

You want to see participation in your product but those grad assistants don't make diddly shit for income.

Yeah, the pressure is real.

I have worked places where an executive spent some time making sure that the business's charity efforts weren't just for show. The place I just left did a lot of things for Operation Homefront, which is kind of like Wounded Warrior Project but with much lower overhead and a better overall track record. Just doing the United Way thing is lazy and ineffective.
