No money for athletics means no money at all

(04/04/01 4:00am)

Throughout my four years at Rutgers I have kept out of the debate over athletics' role at the University. First because I was a reporter, and secondly because I never found a piece that made me want to invest time in writing a response. However, Chris Thieme's column sparked my interest (The Daily Targum, April 2). It would be a great world if we could just take money from one place and put it into what some deem a nobler endeavor at the snap of a finger. Unfortunately it does not work that way. The money that comes into athletics would not be there for the General Honors Program to use because donors gave to the athletics program. In the same way money for Wise Young's spinal cord research could not be given to make a renovations on the football stadium.
