A (well-informed?) commentator claims that Mark Raymond from St. Lawrence will be the new Eph football coach. Comments:

1) I wish that they had hired an Eph, or at least someone, like basketball coach Kevin App, with ties to the region. Williams should try to hire coaches that want to spend the rest of their careers with us.

2) I wish that they had hired someone more experience with (and who took more enjoyment in?) dealing with smart players. Eph coaches should be intellectuals, should be quoting poetry and arguing philosophy with the players. Want to improve the intellectual climate at Williams? Hire more intellectuals!

Note that these comments could be unfair. Perhaps Raymond was born in Williamstown! Perhaps he writes poetry on weekends! We can only hope.

Any other rumors?
