Sacrificing Scholarship for Sweat: The McCormick Presidency in Crisis

The new Rutgers budget will certainly involve significant cuts in spending on academics.  We are expecting to see similar — indeed larger — cuts in the budgets for the money-losing “revenue sports” (talk about a misnomer) which means football and basketball (men’s and women’s).   

Will we be disappointed?

Time will answer that question but, for now, let’s put president Dick McCormick on notice.  If academics are cut but football and basketball are not, your administration will forever more be known as the one that sacrified scholarship for sweat.

The Rutgers 1000 will be watching.
