Here's a list of applications received to date:
I'm betting some of the most competitive candidates (current University Presidents/Provosts, etc.) will apply on Sept 2, as like Baron, they want to avoid the exposure, unless they feel they have a solid chance at the position.
Who would you like to see apply (and/or be offered the job) on Tuesday? Who do you NOT want to apply (or to be offered the job)?
Dr. Garnett S. Stokes, President Freeman A. Hrabowski III (current President at UMBC, everyone
wants this guy, but he has shown no interest in leaving UMBC), and that Zagby's guy that applied (as a Gator, I can't help but pull for this one!).
Not to Apply:
E Gordon Gee, past president at OSU and current president at West Virginia (accepted the job this year at WVU). I can't stand this guy. :)
