Some of the coverage about K.U. Basketball Coach Roy Williams this past week stated that his salary and benefits package was worth about $458,000 per year.

I wonder if any of the faculty at K.U. comes close to that figure — If not, isn’t that pretty convincing evidence that somewhere along the line the universities have lost sight of the fact that their purpose is education, rather than athletics?

Then again, I doubt that it would be front-page news for a week if a physics or math professor went to another institution.
