This was great commentary. If only those that make the choice understood the points made. The last search had much better qualified and more personable candidates. No one that has been selected for this latest round is worth the time that has already been devoted to them. NMSU falls further down the ladder to success.

Must agree with the commentary too. I suspect that those making the choice do not have the necessary skill sets to make the right pick. Nor do they have the courage to say lets look at a different set of candidates. I have been at social functions where one of the finalist was in attendance and it was all about him over the course of conversation.
