    It would take a financial genius to figure out what kind of “profit” Xavier makes on each student, especially as they are a not-for-profit school, right? There are just so many variables and things that take pieces of that tuition money….facility maintenance, professors salaries, utilities, insurance, capital improvement costs, etc.etc.etc. BUT….if it could be shown that bringing in 100 new students would in itself pay for the cost of fielding a football team, I’d be very surprised. It’s going to take some additional funding in the form of others being willing to support and underwrite the expenses. IF they could get that money coming in, then why not? Heck, if I win the lotto millions I’ll pay for it myself! In fact, I’ll pay the whole 25 million athletics budget! But since I’m not planning on buying any tickets, I guess that others are going to have to get their checkbooks out and cover it themselves. I can’t see where they would draw enough additional students to pay for it just with tuition money.

    Correct. Nugent attended Centerville High School south of Dayton before attending Ohio State. Centerville's nickname is the Elks, but I am not aware that may elk have ever been sighted in that region of Ohio.

    The world needs fewer law schools, and fewer lawyers.

    Also, that ship sailed when we failed to buy Chase and NKU took it.
    ...he went up late, and I was already up there.

    Shakespeare was right when he wrote: “First thing, we kill all the lawyers” I write this as a lawyer but little known fact: His original manuscript contained an asterisk for prosecutors.

    Seriously, there is always room for good lawyers.

    But then there is this:

    Why do undertakers bury lawyers 26 feet underground after they die? Because down deep, they really are good people.

    And this:

    What do you call a ship full of lawyers sunk in the bottom of an ocean? A good start.
