Great stuff McP. Interesting on the announcement being Wed. That's definitely different than IT is reporting. Also, Condi would be damn good choice for Prez. At least she understands football and can probably better appreciate it's importance to the university than our current president.

This is my first and probably last post, I'm just a lurker, but you've had me hitting my F5 key like a true junkie these last thirty-six hours. And this post did not disappoint. AWESOME.

 

Thank you, thank you, thank you.

 

Do not be a stranger!

Condi Rice detail. Sorry for the length but there is a lot of relevant detail in here. And it's not from Wikipedia. It's from the Stanford website.

As Provost, she was responsible for a $1.5 billion annual budget and the academic program involving 1,400 faculty members and 14,000 students.

In 1986, while an international affairs fellow of the Council on Foreign Relations, Rice also served as Special Assistant to the Director of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

 

As professor of Political Science, Rice has been on the Stanford faculty since 1981 and has won two of the highest teaching honors – the 1984 Walter J. Gores Award for Excellence in Teaching and the 1993 School of Humanities and Sciences Dean's Award for Distinguished Teaching.
