Kristina Johnson (OSU President)

Discussion in 'Buckeye Football' started by ORD_Buckeye, Jun 2, 2020.

    ORD_Buckeye Wrong glass, Sir.

    Rumors are that the Chancellor of the SUNY system is stepping down to take "a job" at Ohio State.

    Johnson, an electrical engineer by trade who holds dozens of U.S. patents and invented a camera to detect cancerous and precancerous cells on cervical smears, served as dean of Duke University’s engineering school and provost of Johns Hopkins University prior to her arrival at SUNY.

    Somebody break it to Jeff Snook.

    All you EE nerds can rejoice, but what are her thoughts on football?

    Ms. Johnson : “Football? It’s against everything I stand for. “ or something like that.

    ORD_Buckeye Wrong glass, Sir.

    Multiple outlets now reporting that she's stepping down to become Ohio State's President. Oh, and just because it will infuriate all the right people............she's a lesbian.

    Seems smart and, as a engineer, hopefully pragmatic. Hope she doesn't have too large of a sense of entitlement/tone deafness re: stuff like raking side cash for sitting on outside boards. and letting herself get honored before doing shit. Ohio has its own culture and she needs to not do whatever the academic equivalent of talking about "Buckeye Stadium" and sitting in hot tubs is.

    Well, now we no longer have to worry whether or not she's going to like the football program.

    Which would mean her grandfather was born around 1874, almost 150 years ago. Either both her grandfather and father waited a while before having children, or she is waaay older than she looks.

    Based on her bio, she's probably around 62 or so.

    EDIT. Just turned 63 per Wikipedia (Born May 7, 1957)

    Or they meant 1986.

    BayBuck Buckeyes are best

    She’s 20-some years older than me, and my great-grandpa graduated OSU in 1894 (and 1897), so it doesn’t seem totally unreasonable to me.
