A Modest Proposal
Letters to the Editor - StarTribune 4 Feb '07
Drop tuition, football
Regarding "U threatens to quit reciprocity deal" (Jan. 26): Has nobody in the press or at the University of Minnesota considered the simplest solution to the problem? Lower the resident tuition to match Wisconsin. The money would be available easily by dropping the football program as suggested by Jay Weiner (Jan. 14) and several readers. Many elite academic institutions manage to provide a first-class education to students without a football program.
GARY TOFTELY, PELICAN RAPIDS, MINN.
Dream along with me....
