Or, we could reduce the number of 4 year universities, converting some of those 4 years back to 2 year schools, something the state desperately needs more of.


Yeah, I said this in both threads. The state has more universities per capita than almost any other state in the country, despite having one of the poorest high school systems in the country. There are obviously redundancies when it comes to LA higher education.

i love lsu football, but what does it "need" that money for this year? bigger raise to miles? full time babysitters to troubled football players? even more stadium upgrades?
fan base continues to support the program and accept increased fees, costs.

Louisiana State University is just a small part of the LSU system which is chock full of bloated administrative salaries, redundant bureaucratic, redundant and wasteful programs and universities, and unnecessary programs that should not be run by LSU but by the private sector or HHS.


Truer words were never spoken.

No it's not. The University "pays" the Athletic Department's most profitable employees: the student athletes.
