Bishops' statement on their brother bishop D'Arcy? Lukewarm at best

I suppose they supposed they had to say something. And here it is:
The bishops of the United States express our appreciation and support for our brother bishop, the Most Reverend John D'Arcy. We affirm his pastoral concern for Notre Dame University, his solicitude for its Catholic identity, and his loving care for all those the Lord has given him to sanctify, to teach and to shepherd.
That's it. Anybody who didn't know what it was about would think it was a nice thing to say about the Bishop and the university in his diocese, in a general sort of way.
