    I understand Adm Rempt has gotten to know the former QB of the football team quite well. I suppose it depends ... like any college/university prexy. My guess is that given one's druthers, less is better as a general rule?

    Can't speak for USNA but at USMMA, the Supe frequently tutors kids & is a hands on kind of guy with an open door policy. He runs a mean road race & does push ups along side the Mids at football games. He's very approachable & has an uncanny ability to remember names.
