    Why not consider transferring some of the millions spent on football back to the university’s primary mission of educating students?

    For profit education is as useless as for profit health care. It’s time we begin this conversation.

      That is for the entire year (2 semesters). Last year the tuition for 2 semesters was a total of $6820.

    Really! They need to trim administration, professors salaries and they need to help pay for their benefits, including retirement.
    Cost over the last 25 years has gone up at twice the rate of inflation. !
