    I am going to miss him. He's had such a postive effect on Iowa State as a whole and on the athletic department.

    We've witnessed this week what happens when there is no accountability at a school.

    Geoffroy has such a positive effect on this university that it's almost not fair for anyone to have to follow him. He will be so missed.

    In February. I imagine that they're doing this in December as a finale to his last full semester at ISU.

    February, I think. I've also read that Geoffroy would like to stick around in some capacity, maybe even teaching some courses. I sincerely hope that occurs; Geoffroy has been an absolutely ideal administrator.

    He is going to teach Chemistry. That opens up his evenings and weekends for family. It is great that he wil still be a part of the ISU family.

    Geoffroy gets bagged on a lot but there is no doubt that he understood what it means to have great athletic programs. He understood the impact athletics has on the visibility of the university and he did all he could to give the AD everything needed to be successful. He will be missed.

    Who does he get bagged on by?

    I asked the same thing; he's extremely revered. About the only thing I can recall being contentious during his tenure is how the 04 VIESHEA situation was handled...but there'd be unhappy folks no matter how that was dealt with.

    You'll be pretty damn hard pressed to see a college president be liked as well as GG is.

    Re: Fare thee well Geoffroy

    You guys have never heard others complain about GG? I usually hear it from the uneducated casual fans, just over stupid piddly stuff, thinking that he hasn't done enough to help athletics succeed. Those of us who really pay attention to the goings on know that he has been a great friend to the AD.
