He also didn't know UC had an engineering school (let along a well respected one) until he heard about the job vacancy. But of course he got the job.
I have plenty of reasons to disapprove of the job she's doing outside of what she did to Huggins. I've forgiven her for that. I can't forgive her for what she's done to my college. The very first point of her UC|21 plan is to "place students first." Everything she has done in her tenure at UC has shown that to be a total farce.
But apparently I just don't get it because you still think this is about athletics.
I have a cousin in the law school, and several undergrads one in business and another in engineering (he is considering a transfer to Ohio State, because of a girl). They are quite happy. Thats all I have to go on. I guess my response is based mostly on the fact that the only thing that most people know about Nancy Zimpher is the fact that she got rid of Huggins.
