Monaghan named the team name after himself. That is outrageous. I think that naming the school team after yourself is right up there with declaring your birthday a school holiday or requiring all first year students to read Pizza Tiger. Fine, you're the founder and chancellor. Make a commemorative plaque for yourself, or name the library after yourself, but don't name the team name after yourself.So..... a year and half ago, I came up with a hypothetical example of outrageous Monaghan hubris off the top of my head, and it has now become reality. (Okay, so maybe first-year students are not currently required to read Pizza Tiger but we're almost there.) Instances like these make AMU look like a school trapped in a cult of personality. How can anyone look at AMU and consider it an institution that takes academics seriously? Is there no reasonable AMU administrator who has the courage to dissuade Monaghan from such foolishness?
And when is the Ave Maria School of Law going to start sending out copies of Pizza Tiger to its incoming students?
