THE WHIRLWIND wants to know…who should be the next Chancellor of Texas Tech University?
It should be clear by now to most that Texas Tech Chancellor Kent Hance is a lame duck. We’re tired of him, his board of regents is tired of him and he LOOKS tired. If he won’t go away completely we can at least hope he’ll finally give up the athletic program to Kirby Hocutt. Maybe he’ll dotter over to Hance Chapel as Chancellor Emeritus like Pope Benedict XVI has petered off into his little garden home.
It might not be by chance that U.S. Congressman Randy Neugebauer was in town to speak at commencement ceremonies last weekend. He came with a pocketful of tax dollars for Texas Tech and just in time to remind us that he still maintains an address in Lubbock.
Congressman Neugebauer has made great strides while in Congress…great strides in increasing his own net worth in office. Is it possible he is ready to return home the conqueror and now head up Texas Tech University? Let’s hope not.
Who would you like to see head Tech if Chancellor Hance steps down this FALL? Is it even necessary that we have a Chancellor?
