Around the Quad: Rachael Johnson vs. Susie Oliver

Just a quick note to share two things:

1. Former Baylor Cheerleading Coach Rachael Johnson's blog, Team Family Love, was the source of the latest WacoTrib article covering the cheerleading nepotism scandal. The article highlighted the confrontation between Rachael Johnson and Susie Oliver, wife of BU Dean for Student Development, Dub Oliver. (Hat Tip: The original nepotism scandal WacoTrib article is here. Rachael's account of the termination is here and her account of the incident involving police and Susie Oliver is here. Here is her summary of the termination:
1. Dub Oliver, Vice President of Student Life @ BU, has a terrible wife named Susie
2. She decided that she wanted to run the Spirit Program
3. Susie has no experience with cheerleading
4. They fired the woman in charge of the Spirit Program and replaced her with Susie Oliver without any warning or job search
5. Upon being hired, Susie went on vacation for 2 weeks
6. The day she got back she asked me to step down from my position as coach
7. Who knows what terrible decision she will make next Ughhhh..its so frusterating. I loved coaching and I loved my girls. I know that God has a plan in all of this and that everything will work out for good.

2. Check out this crazy group, "We're Baylor Bears Bitches!" which has great undergrad party pics and demonstrates that your daughter may not be as safe and protected from the temptations of college life as you think. For shame! Here is a very mild sample photo:

  • Kinda hard to be funny/sarcastic when the truth (re: Mrs. D-U-B) is so mind-boggling.

  • Yeah, what is up with that move?

  • If you look closely you can see me in the background. I set up my kissing booth / underage alcohol stand under the BearBucks Accepted sign.

  • J-Swan:

    You are solely responsible for the steep decline in female chastity and sobriety among Baylor undergrads this past school year. Let's hope your time in the B school doesn't continue that trend.

  • Ugh, I had been trying to find that blog ever since the Trib article. Then you guys link it up, but it seems to be set to "invite only." Do you have such an invite?

  • It was public yesterday, so she just made it a private blog, probably because people outside of her circle of friends and family discovered it. Oh the perils of internet privacy.
