Drunken Sailors at the U.
What's appropriate to go with a $40 million dollar increase to a $300 million eyesore that will host about six events out of a year? More money for a coach who will oversee the continued failure of the Gopher's football program:
On the day the University of Minnesota approved spending an additional $40 million on its new on-campus football stadium, school President Robert Bruininks said money will not be an issue in the search for a new coach.
Despite the increased pricetag for the stadium and a $4 million combined buyout owed to ousted football coach Glen Mason and men's basketball coach Dan Monson, Bruininks said he assured Athletic Director Joel Maturi that he will commit the financial resources to hire a "first-rate" coach.
It's just maddening, after going through years upon years of crippling tuition increases, seeing the General College and College of Human Ecology close down, and other places like the Community University Health Clinic face a 17 percent spending cut, that they would spend all kinds of money so that "student athletes" and their rich patrons can get their goddamn playgrounds. That stadium better generate the revenue to wash the university with money so it doesn't have to cut money on education, or else I can't be held responsible for what I'd do next.
