Not sure if this is covered somewhere else on the board.

Teambeer is the most knowledgeable FAU sports fan I know, way smarter than me.

When I was at FAU, 1999-2003, when budget cuts, class cuts, teacher cuts were going on all the blame went directly on athletics and how expensive they are.

I hope students have graduated from that belief.

This picture was actually on the Front page of the local section. Glad she had her SunBelt Champions shirt on.

I have come here to chew bubble gum and kick @$$ and I'm out of bubble gum.

Some people have said, "Why are we talking about Innovation Villages and Stadiums when we can't even have summer classes?" but nothing about the athletic fee, I don't think. I don't think anyone's going to complain about our football team, for instance, because of the bowl win and being the only team in Florida to do that. The pride makes up for it.

Yeah, good then.  I remember taking people on as they said "we don't need a football team" in my various classes.

NOW THEY KNOW!
