    Value of Athletics

    I imagine many of you have been assailed at one time or another with those who contend that athletics have no place in a college/university; that they detract from the mission of the institution. This article does a great job of putting real numbers on the rebuttal I usually give those naysayers.

    UNI builds off exposure from March Madness run | desmoinesregister.com | The Des Moines Register

    What do you usually say to those who discount the value of college athletics?

    Sorry if this has been already discussed. I could find it on none of the likely forums.

    Re: Value of Athletics

    Bump - was this posted at a bad time with the site problems or is it just that no one is really interested?

    I know it is bad etiquette to bump your own thread but I'm curious.
