    ORD_Buckeye Wrong glass, Sir.

    Seems like a solid hire. I don't think anyone thought that Ed Jennings or Gee 1.0 would have had the immense impact on the university when they were first hired.

    As I see the job, two of the main requirements for a modern day Ohio State President are fundraising and
    keeping the legislature and Governor firmly supportive of Ohio State's flagship role. That'll be a large part of what I'll judge him on.

    And just sayin' that it might be easier for an African-American President to dislodge Gene Smith from his George Costanza like fortress of an office.

    TheStoicPaisano But I didn't, so it doesn't

    Switching school colors from blue/gold to scarlet/grey is always a solid choice.

    Plus he now has Anteaters and Buckeyes on his résumé.

    Looks a little like Kareem Abdul-Jabbar facialwise. I wonder if he will have to take sensitivity classes before assuming his position. According to the article linked above GeneSmith likes the hire… imagine that:bonk:

    Channel 10's facebook page was hilarious...people whining about the press conference interrupting Dr. Phil in the comments section.

    I like him. Awesome initial interview. God damn right. Athletics is important, but...We are going to change the world.

    I wonder if he could help Thad find another Bill Russell since they both graduated from the University of San Francisco and I wonder if he will be tailgating before the football games.

    In all seriousness Ohio State is well known for its medical school and allied medical professions. This hire can do nothing but help those programs get even better.
