oh and UVa does cost the tax payer. About 8% of costs are pure state supplied. add in various employee costs, security and non-profit write offs and tax exemptions.Uva give great value but it does entail considerable public expenditure still.

I can much agree with Urban Farmer above but there isnt that much Old South about UVa these days (compared to the 1960s/70s when i was first here.its more Big State U, with pretentions).As to Genoways-lets be fair-- he did SOME editorial good- at immense price.He wasn't worth with his price,...

Why is it so hard to see the obvious. The issue for UVA is cultural. People who act or those who don't act are responding to the culture. Whether the Lacrosse coach or the editor of the VQR should go isn't as much about these two individuals, it is about a culture that has been around for a very...

Perhaps the money spent to send Genoways away isn't coming from the taxpayers, but it comes from somewhere--and wherever it originates, the payment is, I suspect, substantial, given the amount of time left on TG's contract. Does it come from the endowment? Tuition and fees? If he worked in the...

some of y'all are wondering "how much this will cost the taxpayers".Not much at all.The University is a state university only nominally.Think of it as a very large private school.Those coaches' salaries aren't costing you concerned taxpayers (LOL),either.

meanwhile, National Magazine Awards: "generally considered the highest award in the magazine industry; in the magazine world, they are roughly equivalent to the Pulitzer Prizes. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Magazine_Awards Not sure why you're intent on belittling VQR's accomplishments......

Dave McNair, Respectfully, Nat Geo and The New Yorker do not exist to compete for "National Magazine Awards", whatever they are. So to say that because VQR won one of these things it therefore competes with these journals is a logical fallacy. The comments regarding provincial insularity do apply...

That ought to teach that character not to take on Waldo.

@Betty, " ...don't care what his track record is. HIS misguided approach to coaching HIS team cost a young woman HER life." That man had nothing to do with her death. He is a coach, not a keeper. The faculty is not responsible for the behavior of adult students who insist upon living on their...
