    President Geoffroy on Iowa Press (video)

    Iowa State University President Gregory Geoffroy: December 9, 2011 » Iowa Press » Iowa Public Television

    Great overall video, but there were several poignant parts about athletics...some obvious, some not so:

    -he considers JP one of his best hires ever

    -ISU's never considered eliminating sports to balance a budget during his tenure

    -more talk about why athletics is the "front door" to the university

    -he and JP speak almost every day

    I'll say it again. We are going to miss this guy.

    I really don't think you can overstate the positive influence he's had on the university and the role he's played in supporting the athletic programs. I wonder if someone has some good comparative data on the university showing the changes that have occurred during his tenure (enrollment, size of endowment, endowed professorships, etc.).

    On a side note, Dean Borg is a season ticket holder. I see him at most all of the games.
