It ain't necessarily so... Response to President Bruininks' Open Forum, Part I

Professor Messing and the President have at it. Is athletics a drain on the University?

See 4:21 President Bruininks claims to be "A strong advocate of all the employees."

But has earlier said: "and I don't think the added protection for some parts of our work force is exactly worth it."


See 5:20


Here the President claims to be a "staunch advocate of P&A"

but he has earlier been surprised by Professor Messing's pointing out draconian P&A policy.
