Because PSU Football Falling into a Black Hole is "Good for the Kids"

http://www.cbssports.com/collegefootball/story/16115355/its-complicated-but-penn-state-cant-hire-best-football-coach

 

Maybe we can dig up some protesters who can explain how the program falling into oblivion is going to confer some kind of tangential benefit to the children allegedly harmed by Jerry Sandusky. Or perhaps we should join the MAC Conference, or the CAA (in 1-FCS). I'm sure that would really show everybody we have our priorities straight.

I think the folks that are still whining around about how there needs to be more punishment against the PSU football program have really missed the point. It isn't the function of a university to operate a A+ football team, but it similarly isn't the function of a university to try and atone for the sins of specific administrators. It is the first priority of the university to maximize the educational quality of the students who pay it tuition. Revenue from football both (1) streams into the academic community, and (2) funds the rest of the sports on campus, thereby enhancing student (read: paying customer) quality of life. A successful football program also generates merchandising which (1) attracts better students and (2) streams revenue into the university, presumably enhancing research and other academic opportunities.

I feel bad for these kids, but where do we draw the line? Moody's wants to "investigate PSU's credit rating." This clown for CBS wants us to "re-evaluate priorities." I say we do that - put academics first, and to really and truly do that, we need to get football back up generating cash. The best way to do that is hire a good coach.

 

Any trolls that want to disagree with this, please specify how further harms to the university or football program confer any unique benefits on alleged victims of Jerry Sandusky. Kthanksbye.
