I wish they would name this regent...I would like to find them and have a word.It was Michael Gartner.
Does anyone know the details of the sweetheart rent deal the Gartner owned I-Cubs have playing in Principal Park? The taxpayers of Des Moines built a nice stadium and I remember seeing once that the I-Cubs pay next to nothing in rent.
A big part of UNI and ISU's athletic budget goes towards scholarships of many Iowa kids, whereas the I-Cubs main mission is to develop players for Chicago.
This is not a bash on the I-Cubs, I think they are one of the better things going on in Des Moines. It just seems a little hypocritical of Mr. Gartner.
