This is what is wrong with collegiate basketball and football. It's an arms race that is out of control, and ISU is a reluctant participant. I'm a huge Cyclone fan so I'm as guilty as anyone, but it makes me sad to think how much emphasis we place on sports. When there are so many noble causes out there that are in desperate need of support, we choose to spend billions of dollars each year worshipping athletes who pose as students, and coaches who make millions off their athletes' abilities.
