I agree that academics are the most important objective that a college should have. And for the record I think they should have cancelled the f-ball program for a couple years. but regarding your comment that " there are alot more uses for 60 million dollars, than spending it on sports" It seems you have it a bit backwards. You see in D1, football usually pays for itself and then some. In fact the 60 million dollar figure was based off the programs revenue (roughly 60mil/yr!). Revenue from these programs funds other programs where there may otherwise be little financial support.
