Since you are such an authority, Mr. Topix, why aren't you gracing the hallowed halls with all your brilliance and wisdom? I can not understand why they aren't ringing your phone off the hook, if only you were half as intelligent as you think you are!

Don;t you realize that colleges main purpose is the sports team?? Education is secondary and teachers and academic departments are expendible, because the 19 amateur fratboys on sports teams make lots of MONEY!!! Apparently you did not realize the major purpose of large American universities!! Other Countries have college sports teams, but they put the emphasis on education instead...how wrong is THAT?? It does not matter that the US education system is cranking out morons, and they teenage fratboys at US colleges are majoring in things like "recreation time management" and "film appreciation"! We have to keep the hugh UT fan base (most of whom never even attended a college, and many never even graduated high school) pumping the money in. We have to make them believe that college sports is a "real" sports league and not just pampered teenagers!! HA!!
