  1. Wow. That’s more than the UA president will be raking in. The quality of education, not to mention the various teams’ less than stellar performances, seem to decline as administrative salaries rise.

  2. Nothing like mo’money, mo’money, mo’money for losers in public education. A basketball team nailed by the FBI for pimping players, a horrible football team and empty seats in a stadium where millions and millions were spent. The answer, mo’money, mo’money, mo’money.

    Back to the WAC. Arizona has no business in the PAC, they will never be competitive.

    • Speaking of the Basketball team, since the Book Richardson case ended and they announced there was an NCAA investigation into the UofA as well as Sean Miller, I have not heard a thing!

      Are we to assume this is being swept under the rug?
