Per Chip:

Robert Bruininks had a favorite quip about how his job performance as president of the University of Minnesota got analyzed and scrutinized by the public.

"Each and every day I was evaluated more for the success of our entertainment programs than I was for the academic mission purposes and activities," he said this past week.

By entertainment he meant athletics. It was his standard one-liner coated in some reality.

The next U president might want to borrow his line. The gist will never grow stale.


Go Gophers!!
