Mr. Bissinger may want to choose an example other than the University of Oregon. The UO athletic department is one of only a handful in the country which take no money from the university general fund; they are self supporting, and in fact are being asked by some to contribute financially to the academic side. The Oregon legislature's consistent failure to fund higher education has nothing to do with Oregon athletics or Phil Knight. In fact, in my opinion, UO academics would be far worse off without the success of the football team, and certainly without Phil Knight's generosity (check out the Knight Library and the Knight Law School for instance).
