While The Students Are Away…

…everyone else and their little brother is weighing in on the Phil Knight donation and Academics vs. Athletics generally, over at the Register-Guard blog. Everyones favorite nutty professor even stops by to raise the level of discourse by claiming that Frohnmayer supports drunk driving and therefore only pretends to dislike Fanconi Anemia.

Now where were we? Oh yeah… why doesn’t Phil Knight just give every professor at the UO half a mil each? Wouldn’t that be better?

    I think someone wrote a pretty good article about the Athletics vs. Academics issue in the Winter issue…if only I could remember who that was.

    The nutty professor’s good for one thing, and that’s alerting me to section 4.190(4) of the Eugene City Code. I always thought the parking lot tailgating was just a look-the-other-way arrangement, but no, it’s enshrined in law! Enshrined!

    Heh, actually I was on the RG website for work and I saw “71 comments on Phil Knight Gift” and I clicked the link, only to be confronted by, well… read for yourself (the link is fixed).

    Incidentally, if you are reading this and happen to be my employer, please note that I posted this during one of my legally mandated 15 minute breaks.
