Rice Baylor Merger

Blogger’s note: I no longer use the term “Redskins” but am leaving my prior references intact in the spirit of learning.

What a glorious weekend for football! Not only did the Texans win, but Rice alum James Casey had some great plays! Also Peyton Manning and Brett Favre won. More than that, though, NEITHER Rice NOR the Redskins lost this weekend!!! OK, so that is because they both had bye weeks, but I’m happy anyway. 🙂

And speaking of Rice, a subject of hot interest for the last year has been the potential merger between Rice University and the Baylor College of Medicine. While I am excited about the prospect of Rice gaining a top-tier medical school, I also recognize that such a transaction would need to be considered very, very carefully. Even if it makes sense on paper (and it isn’t yet clear that it does), IMD taught me that the devil is in the details of execution and certainly neither organization has an existing competence in conducting such a major change.
