Tell me, how is he going to do recruiting? I mean, I know he had to "recruit" at Penn: but that's a different kind of job than recruiting with scholarships, against other schools who are giving scholarships. I have an idea that the competition for players is cleaner in the Ivies.
(maybe that's naive)

Hmm, I guess we already have an answer about his appetite for that challenge, since he elected to take the job.
