VIDEO NEWS: Carleton's president loses bet

On Friday morning Carleton's new president, Steven G. Poskanzer (at left in photo), headed across town to St. Olaf to settle his debts with President David R. Anderson '74. The two had made a friendly wager over the annual St. Olaf–Carleton football game, deciding that the losing president not only would don a sweatshirt from the winning institution, but would serve breakfast at that school while wearing it.

With this year's game ending in a 49–24 win for the Oles, Poskanzer dutifully showed up in Stav Hall, where he was assisted by Anderson and Ole the Lion.
