Would President Marchase be a true collaborator with Haase & Clark?

:)


Just "hypothesisizing" .... ahem
The wrong Dick was hired as president.
From what I've seen, Marchase is athletics friendly.
Probably so, but isn't he pushing 70? I always have liked him though. He would have been a lot better choice than Watts.
Dr. Marchase is a great guy and I've seen him at athletics events, but honestly when the time comes it is time for UAB to get an outsider, someone with zero ties to UAB or the state of Alabama. No guarantee that it would be a home run hire, but there is just way too much internal turnover within UAB and the UA System.

While the "outsider" candidate is considered highly desirable by some, it has not proven to be a good idea many of the times it has been tried. The political parallel is to seek someone from "outside the Beltway" to be President. Two such who come to mind are Jimmy Carter in 1976 and Donald Trump today.

Our present UAB AD Ingram is someone from "away" and his work to date has not made many happy. While we avoid nepotism, we also have to wait for him to find out whose toes he can ignore and which ones are essential to protect. Look at the B'ham City Schools who have gone through many "away" superintendents since their first, Dr Wilmer Cody from VA, came in trying to "save" B'ham schools.
what exactly is the price of tea in China?

$1.29/kilo, not reflecting recent yuan devaluations.

"I've seen him at athletics events" was said of Ray Watts, too.

We really do need an outsider, but I dread yet another hire with a "doctorate" in Higher Education Administration from the Tuscaloosa Diploma Farm.
The interesting question is how much will the next president be paid.
Cornell, John Hopkins and Duke. Is that not "outside" enough?

Told he was on our side in May.
