Huckabee chose to focus on his personal political experiences rather than his current platform, highlighting the successes of his health programs as governor. He told the crowd that, by mandating all public school students to have their body mass index measured and allowing state employees time to exercise during work hours, as governor he helped the government increase its long-term savings.

A few weeks ago, I toppled Schmidley in our debate over whether college football needs a playoff system. I still maintain that it does not, but we're rapidly approaching another BCS nightmare scenario. After Illinois all but ended Ohio State's title dreams, the top BCS ranking was thrown up for grabs. Currently, there are eight one-loss teams, seven of which hail from major conferences. More importantly, there are two undefeated teams remaining -- and one has a legitimate gripe about not being the top-ranked team in the country. All things considered, several teams are going to end the season feeling as if they've been cheated out of a shot to play for the national championship. Umm, so why do I still think the BCS works?

But for professors to have information as to exactly who is looking at what and when? What precedent or need exists for professors to get specific information about which students are reading what and when?
