I would not pretend to have the time or brains to sort through all of the various elements of this issue. My note to the BOG and BOT was pretty simple: "Sharpen your negotiating knives and cut the best deal you can. Call in every favor you can. Since you are responsible for what many perceive as a downward drift to mediocrity at Rutgers over the last 20 years, use this situation as an opportunity to do something bold to reverse the trend. That is your fiduciary responsibilty!"
