I know a lot of you were interested to see how I would vote in the race for chairman of the Republican Party.
I cast my ballot for Alex Arshinkoff, who built the party from scratch. As much as Arshinkoff hated the pressure of competition, I think it was a good check on his power. Arshinkoff won, 260-115.
Still, the party is better off with such a strong leader, even if he rubs some people the wrong way.
Speaking of strong, innovative leaders, Mike Waddell is a candidate for the athletic director position at Northern Iowa. Waddell is an associate athletic director at Cincinnati. He previously held the job at Akron.
Good luck to The Wad, who's probably ticked that I mentioned him in the same blog entry with Arshinkoff. Deal with it, pal. Also, I second Captain Kangaroo's suggestion of a home-and-home deal with the men's basketball programs.
