It's official, the University is holding a press conference now at 10am to announce the name of the new (and only 14th) President of the University of Michigan.
Supposedly the Michigan Daily may Liveblog it (not kidding). WIll post link if they do.I just wonder if they'll do the whole picking hats and putting the winner on their head thing.
EDIT: Better than a Liveblog, the University is posting a live broadcast of the news conference here: http://umich.edu/watch/
EDIT #2: Its Dr. Mark Schlissel, the current provost at Brown and former Dean of biochem at Cal-Berkeley. Here's the pic & bio: http://www.brown.edu/Administration/Provost/people/about_schlissel.html
EDIT #3 - NO YOU DO NOT REMEMBER HIM FROM HIS ROLE IN "THE HOBBIT"
