“I think we all agree that collegiate sports, football and basketball in particular, are hemorraging and overshadow academics. However, sports revenues fuel academics and we've unfortunately reached a state where doing a 180-degree priority shift isn't really feasible. You're not going to have 100,000 people visit science exhibits and poetry contests six Saturdays per year and thus put academics and their potential revenue stream back in its rightful place. Nor can you raise already outrageous tuition costs to offest losses in sports. Best case is place tougher restrictions on fairness and rule compliance, so that sports can't flaunt the system with impunity.”
