This week on the opinion page


In the wake of the news of UT System Chancellor Francisco Cigarroa's ultimatum to President William Powers Jr. to resign or risk being fired, we quickly changed the focus of this week's issue.

On the opinion page, we have an op-ed from four student leaders supporting Powers against what they deem to be groundless attacks on his ability to lead the University.

Online, we have an editorial questioning why the push for Powers' resignation is being made now. We also have a letter to the editor from a former student-athlete written in Powers' support.

Finally, we have an editorial on former Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison's recently announced presidency of the Texas Exes.
