Re: Going to be a long spring and summer for AD Harris

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iizH73By2Qg Clearly Harris has the Gibson Hall talking script in hand--lots of mumbo jumbo about waiting for opportunities. One bit of encouragement is the recognition that we need to "be ready" for such opportunities--something that we should have done at ...

This would absolutely be the right move--and the students will still have their Brown field playground.

Re: Where are you Mr. Slatten?

What would you expect to hear? We already know the IPF will be started after graduations end. If there are private conference negotiations going on, no one is likely to be leaking it to a public booster blog site. Perhaps a little positive “unintentional leak” would light a fire for contributions. ...

The bigger concern may not be that we are ranked #73 among National Universities, but that were ranked #114 for Value Schools. Pay more and get less isn't a strong attraction.
