UW prioritizing athletics - Kim Maynard, Star-Tribune

What a coincidence! The Wyoming Board of Trustees so far has approved $29.3 million dollars in overall cuts to budgets and adjustments, the victims mainly being the university staff, which comprises 85 percent of the budget. Quoting again from a Nov. 19 news article, the budget cuts are necessary because of the university’s falling state block grant do to the recent economic downturn. The university has lost $41 million dollars in state funding cuts in the two-year budget cycle that began July 1. It’s obvious the college wants to attract football and basketball athletes resulting in sacrifice to all other college academics since sports translate into dollars. UW is even going to allow alcohol sales at these sporting events. http://trib.com/opinion/letters/maynard-uw-prioritizing-athletics/article_17918153-fe5a-5a77-b45f-c661b44c1f35.html
