Did he and Goldy have a candle-light dinner under the bright lights of TCF Bank Stadium? I'm sure Bucky was pulling a Bill Billichek.

sutty69-a very uncalled for cheap shot. I'm sure Dr. Kaler will do just fine, but unless you are an alum of the U of M, you don't have a dog in this fight.

@ Zekeman10: As the elitist you apparently wish to be, you couldn't be more wrong. All of us who are resident taxpayers in this state are, by that very definition, Stakeholders. How Our University performs is all of our business.

PLarson1972- in case you haven't noticed the state has in effect disinvested itself from UMN. Minnesota taxpayers will now only have about an 18% stake in the U.: with this paltry contribution MN taxpayers have very little right to claim they should have a say in any aspect of its operation. Mark my words: unless taxpayers show they care to invest in the U. again by changing their voting patterns and vote in a legislature that wants to reverse this trend, in a year or two the rest of the U.'s academic units will essentially be privatized (much like Carslon and the Law School already are). You want this? fine, but you can't have it both ways and expect to have a say too.
