    Really? If you're not interested, don't read the thread.

    That's fine- this thread is not required reading.

    Actually, that information was a lot easier to find than I thought

    Very interesting that “The UA Athletic Department is...

    Actually, it doesn't. It suggests that there are others who might feel that way. It really doesn't matter to me- I am not paying the taxes that fund the salaries or accruing the benefits of the...

    I've done the same thing for my daughters in soccer and rowing. And I have not paid for it with a view that it's a 'hobby'. I expect them to do a lot more than show-up- that's how the lessons are...

    If you read what I wrote, you would see that I am not endorsing that argument. I'm stating that the issue of coaches salaries compared to other senior public employees is an issue that ADs are...

    Is varsity sport a hobby or a teaching and learning opportunity for the student athlete? And from a competitive standpoint among universities, does offering a range of varsity programs help attract...

    I doubt it. Frankly, I think Power 5 conference public schools in some states are probably very reluctant to get into a football coaches salary arms race because of the potential political...

    B1G: Be sure to send that memo to all of the public universities (such as OSU) whose existence is dependent upon the public endowment you refer to as a "handout". Then we can dispense with the...

    You took a shot at a sport that I love and that has been a very important part of my life- so yeah, I take it very personally. If you'd said that about golf or gymnastics or some other sport, maybe...

    And don't think for one second that the rowers on the varisty women's team at Alabama don't know who buttered their bread- they do. And don't think they don't appreciate it either- I'm sure they do....

    I'm very surprised at the number of you who seem to be completely unaware of the real purpose of collegiate athletics. Using the rationale of only offering sports that generate a profit, you would...

    Really? Isn't Ohio State a publicly-funded institution? Maybe you should revisit the reason why public colleges and universities offer varsity sports. Hint: it's not revenue generation. Or maybe as...

    Spoken like someone who does not have even the basic understanding of concepts like team and the purpose of collegiate athletics.

    As a retired international level lightweight rower, I find this somewhat offensive. Title IX requirements aside, there should be opportunities for students who do not have the physical size and...
