Now that the cost of college education has even become a focus of student demonstrations, I think we'll be seeing lots of schools eliminating varsity tennis, among other sports (because of budget cuts, not the demonstrations). Too much money spent on sports students can play on their own. I love tennis, but not as much as I love people having access to somewhat affordable education, so I think it's the right thing to do. The priority of colleges needs to be accessable education. College sports in America has become a monstrosity that needs to be scaled back. If it were up to me, there'd be no sports scholarships whatsoever. The idea of funding students because they partake in an extrcurricular activity is ridiculous. Financial aid should be based on need and academic potential. Period.
