Prez Bo's been an awesome fundraiser and has loosened the purse strings for athletics. I think Pilling's great too but Columbia's uptick started before his watch. I also think Bollinger's into the whole legacy thing--his tenure's longer than any other Columbia president except for Butler. Why not go out as the savior of Lion sports as well.

Your point is well taken, but Bollinger was slow to act.

But for the College alumni uproar of several years ago, I fear that Bollinger and the Univeristy Trustees would not have come around; hence, no Pilling, and all the athletic advances he has championed.
