I agree with Boston Lion's point. Universities are cultural centers as well as educational centers, and for better or worse university preseidents are cultural leaders. Their budgeting priorities, also for better or worse, teach about appropriate emphases. So when the football or basketball coach is the highest paid employee on campus, it says something about how the learned university president tells us to value football or basketball relative to physics or literature. Their rationalizations of the reasons they don't get their respective houses in order also teach about principles and courage. It's one of the debilitating curruptions dragging at the heart of the American economy. Imagine if the U presidents actually had the guts to take an effective stand!
