    Zimpher leaving UC?

    Willy says she's interviewing for the President's position at Northwestern.

    Why would Northwestern want to cripple their athletic teams?
    My dad got to enjoy 3 Reds World Championships by the time he was my age. So far, I've only gotten to enjoy one. Step it up Redlegs!

    They are already practicing what she has been trying to implement at UC--athletic success without sacrificing academic integrity. It is a goal that is given lip service to by many institutions (like my alma mater, tOSU), but Northwestern actually practices it. Duke is also a model.

    Private institution. Not even worth comparing, though I see you are trying.

    Corey Maggette and Chris Duhon's mom might change your opinion of Duke as the lily-white institution that most claim it to be.

    Hey, isn't the goal education?

    I mean "common sense" says that's the real goal right?

    Exactly. Not too mention that comparing any private school to a state run school makes no sense.

    The goal is common sense. Admission standards are gonna make the graduation rates a wee bit different.

    If you want to make TOSU a school for the elite students than so be it. I prefer schools give more chances to kids that might not do as well in school.

    Yea, we wouldn't want state schools to have athletic success while not sacrificing academic integrity.

    Not sure why that concept isn't comparable between state and private schools.

    Of course, no one here has claimed that in this thread.

    Willy could be joking about this? He'd never do something like that.

    How hard is it to realize that it's not probable? If you wanna raise admission standards to astronomical standards than it's more likely.

    Are you advocating that? I guess you want about half the nation to not go to school, just so you can say that the school you went to has amazing standards.

    Yes there is a huge difference between state run colleges and private one's.

    Michigan is considered one of the best universities in the nation and their athletic teams do not have any more strict standards than TOSU or UC.

    I just wanted to point out that Duke may not be the model that you are looking for when you talk about schools UC should pattern themselves after if they are committed to academics. I have never heard anything bad about Northwestern but if you look hard enough, there are plenty of things you can find out about Duke.

    Nancy has laudable goals. Nothing wrong with academic excellence and balance between scholarship and athletics. It's been her execution that has been lacking.

    Having a child going to college this fall, I've found that UC and tOSU (and others) are enormously more selective than in my day. When I went, you had to prove you could exchange O2 for CO2 and that was about it. I barely got in.

    Pay attention to the open sky
