Alan Page is an alum of U law school. Name a better person, I will wait.Carl Eller. Alan Page (doesn't have to be an alum).
It's not like we're awarding honorary degrees here. It's a 5-minute bit on a TV show. Sometimes it's an alum, sometimes not. Two weeks ago at LSU, it was John Goodman. He's not an LSU alum. He's not even a native of Louisiana. He just happens to live in New Orleans.I'm sure it is a joke. Why do names pop up however that don't have anything to do with University as to education? Calhoun went to Yale. The right for these honors should be for people who committed themselves to the University of Minnesota. Mauer who was going to go to Florida and Bachman who went to Winona College shouldn't even be mentioned. They choose not to attend the University. They built their own bridge elsewhere.
Yeah, totally knew that, my bad...too focused on those alum who played for Gophs. He is my #1.Legit list:
1) Dungy - commentator on #1 show in TV
2) Lesnar - perhaps the most famous alum at this moment
3) Molitor - HOF
4) Alan Page - Alum of law school, perhaps MN’s greatest living person

Lehman did go to Minnesota and has often been nominated to be Gopher Golf coach.How about Tom Lehman sp? pro golfer from Alexandria I believe who I think went to the U but must admit I am not sure about that, back when Mason was the coach he was always promoting the program in public whenever he could and being a Masters champion, and I believe he won a few other major championships, he had a pretty big microphone back then. Anyway, I think he could be a very respected and well known top tier athlete many could appreciate for this appearance.
