Segue of the day: Some random internet dude was speculating that Carleton's incoming president, Dr. Roseann Runte, left her previous post at Old Dominion University because of the Virginia school is making upgrades to its football program.
That sounds like a completely batshit conclusion. Dr. Runte won't have to worry about football -- at least for now. Hey, the decision to discontinue football in 1999 hurt at the time (especially if you were a Queen's undergrad whose beloved Golden Gaels were suddenly deprived of a guaranteed win), but it has the best move Carleton ever made -- next to hiring Dave Smart.
