Don't Look Now But Its Our Favorite FAU Beat Writer...

Back at it again, with another heart warming tale about FAU…

So, just what is the mention about Athletic Fees for?  Have anything to do with the article whatsoever??

On a side note:

Are we NOT supposed to hire a basketball coach??

Well-written piece, although I don't agree with the angle of it.

The overall gist is that FAU is hiring administrators, coaches, etc. (as they should be), but not giving faculty raises.

I didn't have a very good experience with faculty, to be honest. That's not to say that I didn't learn anythign or that they aren't good people. But when I look back at FAU, I can count on two hands who my professors were, but can name the phone extensions and the first and last names, sometimes spouses names, of administrators that made an impact on my life.

And maybe partially in her defense, the athletics fees were mentioned because the coaches salaries were mentioned. And the readers would ask "why can't they use athletics money for that." While sports-enthusiasts understand that it costs a lot of money to run a successful athletics program, the "general" reader may not understand that.

I agree 100%! OK no problem we won't hire a basketball coach or any assistants. It's not like we're spending money on dumb things like $200K a year for someone to clean the parking lot or something like that.

Gimme a break! Stop looking for a story all the time, stop always blaming everything on FAU. Yeah money is tight and finances are tight right now but if she had it her way, we should fold the Bball team because Oh no, we spent money on coach! The audacity of this university, how could they!!!

My two favorite teams are FAU, and who ever is beating FIU!

And judgeing by the response many of the students agree with her.

I love the one about how his program got moved to Boca. Drive or transfer out, you have that option.

What FAU atheletics has done is put the school on the map big time. Look at enrollment and the need for student houseing. While atheltics IS expensive, it is necessary and critical if the school wants to grow beyond a commuter. But there are always going to be those people who want it to be a commuter.
