WOW! Can you tell that we love us some Chancellor Woodward? Seriously…can we just keep keep this ‘interim’ guy for a few years?
The following video was posted to NC State University’s YouTube Channel yesterday and it shows Chancellor Woodward attending NC State’s first football practice of the year. Additionally, I just noticed where “Yet Another” noticed the same video and blogged some great comments in this entry.
Jim Oblinger used to say the EXACT same thing about recognizing that sports is the ‘window’ to the University. But, simply providing lip service to the obvious is very different from truly grasping the importance and magnitude of Athletics. Something tells me that Woodward not only ‘gets it’, but that he is committed to it.
This is a BIG step away from the days of Larry Monteith wanted to leave a tied NC State-UNC football game early in the fourth quarter in order to beat traffic.
This link will take you to our growing tag for Chancellor Woodward. Allow me to echo one of the comments from one of our previous entries and videos that we posted.
I just watched this video which is different than what I saw before. I’d just like to say that Chancellor Woodward is extremely, extremely impressive. As far as I’m concerned he’s night and day compared to what we’ve experienced the last few years. I know we don’t want to settle without a search, but if a search is conducted and Woodward is deemed the best guy to lead our university, then I’ll be fine with that.
Lastly, look how ‘busy’ Lee Fowler is! What a hard worker obviously exhibited by need to loosen tie. I can only wonder how many media interviews in a day it takes before Fowler has to reach for his tie.
