    he would be a huge supporter of the athletic department. TV loves his football.

    He'd probably try to get a Pittsburgh Steelers preseason game in Ames.

    I think that would be a good fit. Vilsak loves his sports and is a great person when it comes to education.

    Please Please No. ISU doesn't need to follow up a fantastic president with an incompetent fool

    Re: Tom Vilsack New ISU President?

    It would be good to have someone with some pull to advocate for the University in these days of constant funding cuts for Universities. I think he would be a good fit, as long as he still has ambition and is dedicated to the job. I haven't heard anything to indicate he wouldn't be, just would make sure that after years of being Governor and in the U.S. Cabinet, that he wouldn't be taking the job while coasting into retirement.

    He did a solid job in his years as Governor and throughout his career and life. There is nothing at all that would lead a reasonable person to believe he is an incompetent fool (other than your obvious political bias).

    Vilsack is a HUGE Hawk Fan. I'm sure he remembers all to well over 50,000 ISU fans booing him during the 2001 Iowa/ISU football game.

    PASS!

    Re: Tom Vilsack New ISU President?

    I think TV would be a good choice (from an ISU sports fan's perspective) for the following reasons:

    One, I believe that TV wants to replace Tom Harkin when he retires. Being ISU president would keep him in the public eye until that time comes. If that is the case, he wouldn't want to do anything to upset ISU sports fans (voters).

    Second, he is not an academic elitist that some other candidates would be. They tend to look down at college athletics, and are the ones you have to worry about.

    Actually, I like that idea....and I'm not a Dem.

    Edit: never mind. I didn't know he was a Hawk fan.

    I'd like to keep politicians out of the seat...

    But I wouldn't be against the idea.
