I am embarrassed for the University of Texas

So the above Tweet comes via Bruce Feldman, the excellent college football writer.

It is mortifying.

Here are the questions I’d like to ask the UT administrators who approved such a thing:

  1. What are you trying to teach your “student-athletes” about the value of money?
  2. What are you trying to teach your “student-athletes” about greed?
  3. If you had asked your incoming “student-athletes” whether they’d rather have 43-inch flat-screen televisions at each locker, or whether those 43-inch flat-screen televisions (or the money used to acquire them) could be donated to inner-city after-school programs, what would they choose?
  4. What does this say about the values of your school?
  5. What does this say about how little you think of your recruits? How they’ll come to UT because of materialism?
  6. When you go home at night, and you think about luring 18-year olds to campus with shit like this, can you sleep soundly?

Seriously, it’s disgusting. But I love this response …

It is not usually paid for by the school.
When the law school starts recruiting 4 star attorneys I’m sure a wealthy alum will step up.
