People hire lawyers, not law firms, and the University seems to have a good team on the matter.I can't help but snicker at the irony that the University went out and hired a firm with the name "Husch" assoicated with it. With a 166:1 ratio it sounds like the University may be trying to quietly sweep this under the rug and move forward with as little noise as possible.
Are you saying they will hire a deaf lawyer? to help balance things out?I know this law firm well. I have many friends who have worked there over the years. It is a large and reputable firm and the lawyers assigned sound more than qualified. As for the demographic statics, I dare say they are no worse than most Top 250 law firms in the country. Law has made some strides in diversity during my time, but the rainmakers and managers at most large firm remain quite white and quite male. Change is happening....very slowly.
No chance it’s unbiased as long as the U is choosing the firm and paying the bill at the same time. Should have been chosen by the BOR and reported to the BOR, not Harreld.I hope this is really an independent investigation. I have my doubts, too much money involved, too much cronyism involved, too much old boy politics involved to make me feel it will lead to anything.
Hopefully, KF is sincere in changing the culture.

Agree, if U of I is paying the bill there will be some bias involved. That said from all the stuff going on around the country and the climate of not only football but the world I think KF is genuine when he said changes will be made. Will they be enough to quell any dissent or hard feelings we will see.
From the way it sounds the change to remove Doyle has already been a popular change and I would guess behind closed doors there are discussions regarding anymore behavior that may be considered "Racist" or "Bullying" the coaches are going to have a tight leash going forward, which they should.
As each day goes by though my hopes of actually having a season are slipping away especially with all the cases coming out of the Texas program and ISU athletics recently.
