Bootleg Video: Bob Bowlsby

By now, you have certainly read all about him. Bob Bowlsby's experience and success have drawn wide praise for his hire as Stanford's next athletic director. His story and his quotes have been publicized, but now for the first time you can see and hear Bowlsby, with this press conference video.

There are two levels of depth you can take from this press conference video of Bob Bowlsby, as he is introduced as Stanford's next athletic director.  Provost John Etchemendy gives an introduction to explain why Bowlsby was the unanimous choice for the job, and Bowlsby explains why Stanford was the only place that could have taken him away from Iowa.  There is good context and information to be found.  But the other reason to take in these video clips is to observe the demeanor and delivery of the man who, starting in July, will be the primary communicator to all arms of the University for the Athletic Department.
