1. What could they be thinking?

They are completely out of touch. Smarmy and slick man who will make the situation worse.

2. Engler (pillsbury dough boy)

He was a horrible governor and I have no doubt he will be a horrible
president of my alma mater.

3. They could not have possibly made a worse pick

in a million years. Engler was an absolute disaster as governor of Michigan, on top of just being a nasty, nasty vindictive underhanded politician (= Republican). He mercifully dropped of the face of the earth years ago when he finished ruining Michigan's budget and hadn't been heard from since - until now. What tomb did they raid to come up with his name?

4. Nearly 70 - but probably still plugged in with political pull....

.... Given that they now have a State alum as their Repub. governor.

They are going to need all the pull they can get. The result of looking the other way will have a disastrous price. My relatives who are State grads are both horrified and despairing.

5. Interim. He's in charge of the coverup.

Obviously.

6. Taking a cue from Purdue?

Though Mitch Daniels (former IN governor) is the actual president and not interim (he appointed the board as governor that then hired him as president - not fishy at all, right?!).

Still... Engler?
