Has anyone else run into a lot of people(isu and non isu fans) who are upset about ISU spending so much on our new scoreboard? I've had quite a few people saying they don't get how teachers salaries are being cut and how that should be spent on that. Or how it should be spent for other departments of colleges at the university. From my understanding, the scoreboard is being financed, and it will be paid for mostly by the money from the future big XII tv deals and the extra income. That money isn't spent anywhere else but athletics right? I understand that it's Iowa State UNIVERSITY and that it's purpose is for education. But why can't people understand that if you took away athletics that not only would the school die, but the town would be devastated. Is it a shame that athletics is a huge business and that sometimes education gets overshadowed by athletics? But if football and athletics become self sustainable, that will be a huge lift for the university as a whole.
