The insanity of college athletics

Well, it seems apropos that this article in The Nation lambasting the spending frenzy that is college athletics appears as the University of Minnesota hires on a $1M+ (on the books) per year new football coach. This is a university in which trash collection is a questionable proposition, I'm teaching nearly 200 students in a peeling lecture hall before they go off to lab to study the wonders of the universe with broken lab equipment. Ah...priorities.
