Holden Thorp says college presidents need to get out of the sports business

Holden Thorp is packing up after nearly five years as chancellor at the University of North Carolina, preparing for his next job as provost at Washington University in St. Louis. It's no accident he's leaving a school that regularly plays for national titles at the NCAA's highest level to one that competes at its lowest. Thorp's done with big-time college sports, and if he had his way, other school presidents would be finished with them, too. (Yahoo!)
