The logical contortions employed by the author of this article about LSU’s new football facility and the reactions thereto are certainly cringeworthy. But then, he’s just following in the path of the AD:
LSU’s goal, as new athletic director Scott Woodward said, should be to be top notch in physics and football. Perhaps a facility like this will help LSU be better at both. Athletics should be the front porch of a university, attracting high-quality students and funding, not the other way round.
Yes, I’m sure the day funding to attract a quantum physics professor after discovering the football players have easy access to sleeping pods is just around the corner.
