Great selection all around. Hoping that the selection that seems like a home run, lives up to it. Wishing Reggie and the university the best.

First non-white male too.

It's also interesting that come this summer two major institutions in the state of Texas will have presidents whose children were female student-athletes at Rice.

Have to think this line from the release is a good sign ...

"And we have just been invited to join the American Athletic Conference, which coincides with a renewed commitment to athletics at Rice."

The most obvious is that his daughter is on the soccer team. Beyond that, I know that the ADs office recruited him pretty hard as a fan and that he has generally been supportive as he could be as Provost. Also, he comes from Berkeley (as a student) and Ga Tech (as faculty) and he was the Faculty Athletics Rep there... and was VP of the ACC.

I understand that Berkeley and GT (and the ACC) aren't Michigan and UT (or the SEC), but they're not bad models for Rice to follow in many regards. They are decidedly better than Yale and the Ivy League.

Wishing Reggie the absolute best. I'm expecting a massive improvement from Leebron.

Fascinatingly, both daughters were named Shelby!!

That's the elephant in the room - and is the turd Leebron has left on the table for the new President. Both basketball and football teams have lost a lot of fans over that issue (refer to the lack of people in Section 103 at Tuesday's game).
