JB:... weeks left before our first scheduled football game and with the CD-19 count still increasing, it seems to me that the season is very much in doubt. In reality the entire university academic year may be in danger of going to an online education system that will destroy ASU's ability to charge the high dollar tuition that it has to have to pay the bills that they incure each day. Out-of-state and foriegn students have the highest costs but it is still damned expensive to attend as an in-state student. I have two grandkids that graduated this May and they are considering their options and each have scholarship help with tuition but don't know if they want to become a couple of lab rats as the school tries to pound a square peg into a round hole.
I don't think this is going to end well for most universities and the ever expanding importance of the college professional sports programs. Stanford's dropping of a large number of minor sports is just the begining of dropping of minor sports nationwide. I'm also thinking that there will be major changes to the Title nine regs that will allow schools to cut womens sports more easily. I am certain that a year from now that the way that all universities run the athletic and academic departments will be much than today. Gone are the days when I started at ASU and tuition was $95.50 a semester, had $400 a semester in scholarships, lived at home on a farm(on University) and it was just over two miles to class. Life was good.
