“Doc” Gets It

Posted by Kevin on September 14, 2007

I think State new school president, Robert “Dog” Foglesong, gets “it” when it comes to the school’s athletic programs.  Never before have I known, or heard of, the school’s president being so involved with the programs as a fan as well as boss.

He formed a band called Bark to have some fun reaching out to students and recruits.  He promotes a nutrition and exercise program by participating in it.   He’s done fly-overs at State football games in a university owned biplane.  He often invites student leaders over to his house to “hang out” and get to know him.  He has a motorcycle custom painted in the school’s colors that he drives all over campus and to sporting events.

But the coolest thing of all?  Entering the 2007 football season, Doc said he would not shave his beard until the football team won a game.  You may be thinking that’s lame… or what’s the big deal?  But think about it.  The president of a university… refusing to shave until the football team wins.  Think of all of the social engagements this guy must attend on a daily basis with a scruffy beard and him explaining why.

That’s school spirit to me.  He “gets it”.
