When they say it’s not just about the money…

Shorter LSU President F. King Alexander:  Yeah, handing Les Miles $15 million while we’re begging the state for more money probably wouldn’t be such a hot idea.

    Exactly. When will the insanity stop?

    The article about Kansas you posted earlier in the week really drive it home for me. At some point, somebody will say “enough”.

    Eh, who am I kidding?

    College kids borrowing money to pay athletic fees to help coaches make millions and the federal government absorbs the debt while the kids who borrowed the money can’t get a decent job with a useless degree. Man, football holds some kind of power.

      I get that is sux that a UGA student has to pay $106/yr for athletic fees but get off the tax subsidy issue. That fee represents .004% of the cost of one year of attendance. If you really want to help the students and the loans that are backed by tax payers look into the cost of school and why it is growing at a higher rate then almost any other costs in this country.

        Well, it’s all kind of tied together, isn’t it? Subsidies drive the bus of rising costs. And if lowering the cost of education is something we want to do, wouldn’t the athletic fees be an easy place to start?

    I read the comments to the linked article. A bunch of LSU fans copied and pasted from the Getthepicture comments section.
