HARD TO MAINTAIN THEIR LOFTY ACADEMIC AIRS.

University Diaries has been calling out the perversities going on in big time college sports, most recently with an assist from Richard Vedder.
Whenever the heads of public universities condemn the stinginess of their legislatures, they loftily remind everyone that a mind is a terrible thing to waste. Yet as Vedder suggests, when your school looks like a money-hemhorrhaging joke run by idiots ... you make it awfully easy for politicians to shrug you off.
I await the day when the diversity weenies and the sports establishment emerge as the last defenders of business as usual in higher education.  That will be the day for celebratory toasts.


Until then, I won't lack for stuff to post.
