Sounds like an audit is needed to see where the money is going elsewhere at UNCW. Maybe there are cuts that can be made elsewhere. The university attracts students by what they offer in academics, sports, etc. The students pay tuition to help fund the university's operation.
Aren't you tired of that ol', worn out & hackneyed "anointed one" yet?!? You need some new shtick (and please, no more borrowing from Limbaugh-likes), no one even hears that any more, it's been soooooo overly used!
...he's COMPLETELY out of the picture! Don't care how many times it's been used, facts are facts.
They should cut the basketball program, Coach makes waaay to much money for a losing team, he sucks all the money out of the winning teams...
the basketball programs are the only ones remotely generating any revenue for the other sports drain on resources. You guys dont get it. Every Div I college is the same. The only sports that carry their weight and actually MAKE any revenue for schools is football (which UNCW doesnt have a team maybe they should reconsider they could play at Legion Im sure) and basketball (mostly mens but women's do tend to generate some cashflow) Other sports like swiming diving and the rest are all money vacuums.. The one outlier that does tend to break even and occasionally make money (but not for all schools) is baseball and softball (given UNCWs success I would imagine they actually might be slightly on the plus side). But I agree the real vacuums and waste of money are overpaid tenured left wing liberals who dont teach anything useful. The educational major thing is a bunch of melarky. Teachers should be getting degrees in the subjects they want to teach and maybe a minor in educational systems and methodolgy. This is why our schools are failing we have teachers who supposedly spend years learning to teach but dont know the subject matter. When I was in school my math teachers in 7-12 had degrees in those subjects not "educational degrees". And when I went to nursing school guess what they had degrees in Nursing. Imagine people teaching lawyers, nurses, doctors and such who never worked int he field and didnt even have a degree per se in their teaching field.. Would be scary we'd have professionals who got through college who knew nothing about what they were supposed to do. Its sad but true.. (and its why our primary base education system is crumbling and why I would never trust public schools with my kids, I value their futures too much to leave them to the devices of a system that values teaching how to put a condom on a banana and that its ok for gender confused johnny to use the girls bathroom, oh on that side note ALL children under a certain age are gender confused at times if these idiot educators actually studied life span development in a complete context they'd know that, instead of focusing on being functionally literate knowing ABCs and basic math by 1st or 2nd grade.) Reality is the biggest downfall of the public educational system is while allowing children to explore, which is all well and good, the failure to set acceptable boundries as to what is or not acceptable which children desperately need because THEY are children not little adults is where things derail quickly. They dont need to be worrying about anything other then basics when they are young. I mean the ACLU and company have done such a number its apparently illegal to hold your kids to any moral basis such as even the basic 10 commandments which are simple rules of civilized society. Dont kill, Dont steal, Dont Lie.. What the hell is wrong with kids being taught basic human dignity respect others peoples property and be honest.. Hell if we did that a little more maybe we wouldnt have 13yr old kids being charged with murder on a regular basis. The Liberals in higher education all claim its a plot against the poor when in fact the greatest disservice is not to hold people accountable for choices and actions and instead make excuses and fostering dependancy. Sorry to say this but if anything the left wing liberals who spout off about the evils and injustice that african-americans suffered prior to the Civil War and Good Ole Joe Biden swore the GOP was "gonna put them back in chains" and wasnt even castigated for it, well sadly folks I fear they are being put back in chains and made slaves all over again but this time slaves to a giant government system that makes all dependant on them.. Nothing is free in this world.. Remember the slaves were cared for by many different types of plantation owners some treated their slaves well but that didnt make them free in the end now did it. They still were slaves and bound to their masters property.
CUT the Chancellor's pay, and you could fund a hellova lot!!
And some coaches make way too much for this market. The Educational Masters at the TOP of the royalty at UNC-W are over-paid.
Even if they quit the swimming program -- what are they going to do? Rent out the pools? Would be a waste of existing facilities.
Maybe if the Teams WON a little more, the uppity-ups at UNC-W would give more support. Even that hateful Heather.
...to behave any differently than the government itself? The government routinely and blatantly spend money frivolously, without caution and without supporting funds. They are also very good at mis-allocation, mis-appropriation and spending money they simply do not have.
This decision is par for the course as far as I'm concerned. I've never understood why, as an individual citizen, that I'm held accountable for my personal finances, paying my debtors on time and living within my means, but the government which uses MY money isn't and doesn't and constantly forces ME to give them more and more?
If I didn't know better, I'd say the deck is heavily stacked! Time for some change folks and were not talking the "pocket stuff" promoted by the "annointed one" at the helm of our country.
