Response to Wounded Bear (Reply #1)

2. I've tried explaining college sports when travelling abroad.

They kinda get it in other English-speaking countries, but the rest of the world doesn't understand why alumni don't push for their alma maters to win more Nobel Prizes or National Book Awards. They really can't grasp this.


That being said - UI just announced cancellations of some sports programs because of the budget. Men's gymnastics, men's and women's swimming, and one or two other. Not the money-makers.
