Grambling football dispute draws attention to cuts

http://sports.yahoo.com/news/grambling-football-disputme-draws-attention-211743385--spt.html

No doubt Jindal and the Republican legislator has gone through the higher education system with a meat cleaver, but Grambling (5,000 students) and Louisiana Tech (11,000 students) are within 6 miles of one another. Why can't these two institutions be merged? Louisiana has a population of 4.6 M with 17 separate bachelor granting colleges/universities. In comparison Iowa has three with 3 million in population. Some consideration should be given for historical black institutions, but do 17 make sense (many in the same city)?

Anyone from Louisiana have more information on this topic?
