And tenure is a ridiculous concept which needs to go 

Yes.  One of the cornerstones of the western educational system, that frees researchers/educators from political influence from within and without the University needs to go... Congrats, you and Premier Xi JinPing agree whole-heartedly.

I'm not an expert, but it seems we have a lot of tenured professors who are all about pushing political and religious beliefs and punishing those who do not agree. I understand tenure should allow them "freedom", but it should not allow them to be the judge, jury, and executioner.

Who actually listens to salt and peppered pony tailed dirty looking professors who wear the same sport coat every day as a theme of life guidance? 

If you do, well, you'll grow up...eventually.

Professors should be evaluated on their teaching ability. That is what students pay them for. Tenure allows most to spend their time in research and very little teaching and they are untouchable once tenured. It is a jacked up system.

But university rankings depend on getting grants for research. That Tier 1 ranking we brag about depends on this.

I would be more interested in adding New Mexico St. as a basketball only school.

No cause the whole time they will be pushing us to add them in football and that just is not going to work.  I agree they have a decent basketball program though and would probably help our RPI.  But I see no reason to get their hopes up for FB by adding them.

It's pretty clear that C-USA is not interested in adding schools without football.  I have to say, I agree with that policy.
