Woody Hayes Chair

I bleed maize-and-blue, and so it is only with great reluctance that I mention anything having to do with the Ohio State Buckeyes. But I gotta say, I love the idea of a Wayne Woodrow Hayes Chair in National Security. There is only one appropriate response: Michigan needs a Bo Schembechler Chair in the same. And the person who holds it needs to generate more footnotes.
