    I heard it was free gas for a year for all university employees.

    "But the fund dropped so low amid the national economic downturn that university officials won't say how much is left, and the athletic village it was supposed to pay for has been put on hold."

    I was going to say, unless he's been shorting Oil..........


    "We are first and foremost an educational institution that values integrity, honesty and treating others with fairness and respect".

    -ISU President Gregory Geoffroy; circa May 2003.

    I just noticed the thread below about the downfall of the fund used to inflate the value of his original donation. Feel free to move this.

    How can they say "more", when the original investment is now worth nothing and the athletic dept is $300MM in debt using it for collateral?

    There is an old saying that the key to a successful university is beer for the students, parking for the faculty and football for the alumni. It might have to be updated to include free gas.


    Dean Wormer was wrong. Fat, drunk and stupid was a great way to go through college (all five years of it).
