Milne leaving W&M
My buddy, Spencer Milne, is leaving the Tribe to move to Penn State University.

Spence is one of the hardest working people I had a chance to meet in my time at W&M. He did a fabulous job at whatever he was in charge of, and I'm sure he will be successful at Penn State as well.

Good Luck to you and your family.

Totally agree. He is a great guy and was a huge asset at W&M. If he wants it, I fully expect him to be an AD somewhere in the next decade.

I'm happy for him, but we've lost someone who thinks, "Things can be better," and then goes out and makes them so.

I am really excited for Spencer--What a great opportunity for him! He has great things in front of him.

That said, this is a huge loss for WM. Spencer did such great work for the athletic dept, mentored countless students and really transformed his department. He was so supportive of new ideas and initiatives. Spencer worked tirelessly, always had a smile on his face, and drove things forward.

My parents continued ordering football season tickets despite not being able to go to many of the games because "Well, we just really like Spencer."

He'll be greatly missed. I know he'll leave the department in great order for whomever comes in next to continue the great work that's been done.

I saw this on FB, but didn't want to bring it here until I was sure it was ok.

Huge miss for the Tribe, but well deserved. Agreed that he should be an AD before too long.

He will be working as an assistant AD on their athletic fundraising.

Spencer is the guy who inaugurated the Tribe mens basketball Gold Game and made it the huge, and now annual event, it has become.

He'll do great at PSU and wherever he goes. He has been a terrific asset for W&M and will be missed.

First off, congratulations to Spencer!

Having said that, let me ask:

1. Couldn't W&M use him as an assistant AD on athletic fundraising?

2. "Moving on up" was mentioned by several posters. If football was all that matters then maybe so. But W&M's success in basketball (as meager as it is) is just as good as any success that Penn State has had (at least lately) and, as far as the non-revenue Olympic sports are concerned, I say that the Tribe's are better or no worse than equal to Penn State (they do have a good wrestling program, something that we dropped in the '80s). So, although the position title might be a step up, the university and the overall sports program are no better than W&M re non-football.

3. So, if the title is a promotion, then I ask again the same question as # 1 above.

4. Is this a case of the new Athletic Director sweeping out the past and wanting to insert her own cronies into key positions? Why else would Spencer leave now when theoretically he could have left years ago?
