Re: Penn State / Jerry Sandusky Pt. II
I still think the football team doesn't fund the other sports as much as you think. Notice the article stated that the football surplus mostly goes toward maintenance and capital improvements. I suspect most of that goes to maintaining and improving the football facilities.
I live near the Universities of Akron and Kent State. Both have poor football teams, yet Akron was recently national champs in soccer and Kent went to the College World Series this year. Both schools not only built strong programs in other sports, but also had the money to outbid bigger schools and keep their coaches. Football success is not a prerequisite for success in other sports.
Burn down the disco. Hang the blessed DJ. Because the music that he constantly plays, it says nothing to me about my life.
