Is there a UK disconnect?


The Herald-Leader printed an editorial today, “The Disconnect on UK’s campus: Sports thrives; education suffers.”

In it, they write, “How can you ask the taxpayers to pony up more for higher education without asking a money-making sports machine that’s under your control to also sacrifice more to serve its university’s higher purpose” adding “Championship college sports and top-flight academics are not mutually exclusive. The University of North Carolina has proven that, yet again.”

For those who missed it, the Ace blog printed the text of UK Prez Lee Todd’s Friday April 3 campus memo a few days ago and you can read it below.
