  1. $105 million and we’re #18?

  2. 5:40 – I snorted….good job !

  3. and yet the schools in the village are so dirty.

  4. Middling in academics, middling in sport, but top dollar taxes?

  5. What about academics where we continue to slide.

  6. Why would we be proud to be known as a sports school? Do you want to be Penn State? Focus on sports and the culture around them?

    How about being known for academics, music, debate team, social ipact programs? Sports benefit the few who make it through without having multiple concussions and broken bodies. Congrats to the parents and the survivors.

  7. Never good when your sports rating is higher than your academic one

  8. “social ipact programs” (sic).

    Misspelling aside, this is why we are sliding in academics… too much focus on feel good socialist crap.

  9. 9:24-You nailed it !!!
