So...Cheek is saying he wants a top 25 university out of one side of his mouth and then turns around and punishes the academic and graduate programs for horrible financial decisions made by the athletic department. UT is such a joke. And before everyone starts talking about how UT sports makes the UT academic world work, UT Athletics doesnt pay rent for all the land for their facilities. Yes, they pay for the parking lots that the students and fans use but not the land for practice fields, practice facilities, stadiums, arenas etc. If they want to become a separate business entity as Hart has been pushing for since he arrived, then it is time to pay land lease. Oh, and every athlete has to attend classes to be able to play in the NCAA. UT academics is not collecting full tuition and fees for each of those students from UT Athletics. That should change too. They need to help pay the faculty teaching their athletes. If Cheek didnt have a plan for how to deal with all these buyouts and firings as he stated earlier this week, then he has proven himself unfit for the job. This decision today just confirms that. You cant please two masters Jimmy. And last time I checked, the university is supposed to educate people, not be a professional sports franchise.
