Re: POLLARD'S STATEMENT ON STATE FUNDING
It's interesting that Michael Gartner is the Board of Regents member who's pushing for this. Didn't he get ousted at NBC because the news division that he was running was losing money hand over fist? And isn't his Iowa Cubs organization kept afloat by support from the Chicago Cubs parent club and from the city of Des Moines? If this is not accurate, then I stand corrected, but it just seems funny to me that he's demanding the university athletic departments be completely self-sufficient.
