Jonathan Powers is also the head coach of the men's and women's swim team. The team affectionately refers to him as "J-Pow" or, in more rare occasions, "Uncy Pow-Pow"... but you should probably call him Dr. Mr. Professor Powers, sir.

After lecturing, he commonly asks for, "Questions? Comments?"
Advice: If you say something, and he says, "I'm sorry, what?" then do not repeat what you just said.
