Intercollegiate Athletics subsidy by UC Berkeley

It isn't bad enough that students with GPAs well above 4.0 don't get in at CAL while other students with much lower grades get in on sports scholarships, but tuition, fees and tax payer monies are used to help that!
Don't get me wrong, sports are great and very necessary, but a line should be drawn at these excesses.
There is going to be a hearing soon on the subject, and hopefully the regents will come to their senses.
