      I'll say this - the local paper is certainly giving this alot of ink.

        Local columnist, who last week wrote a full column on UC's decision, in his morning blog today.

        Expect the ongoing Track debate at UC to go national. The pie is shrinking everywhere, and when that happens somebody always gets the short end and goes after big guys, football and basketball. UC track coach Bill Schnier talks about "fairness'' and "opportunity.'' AD Mike Thomas talks about "the market.'' Both are right.

        Schnier's point is idealistic, though, and not in line with the NCAA's undeclared mission: To keep the football-b-ball money train rolling. Schnier suggests that Brian Kelly doesnt need $1.2 m to coach football; Mick Cronin doesnt need 700k to coach basketball. Thomas says it's where the market is now. Schnier says the market is insane. He has a point. He has written to NCAA prez Myles Brand. He'll get nowhere. Unless, of course, CBS decides it's good business to spend $1 bil on the NCAA track and field championships.

        The current deep recession should cause all of us to reconsider what really matters and what really doesnt, and to view with amusement at best and disgust at worst the arms race for coaches and facilities. The market isnt buying that, though. Funny, sometimes, where our priorities take us.

        As I said earlier, it's pretty amazing the traction this has gotten with the local media.

        Disappointing that it's taken this kind of situation to earn more ink for the team than they've gotten in 30 years combined for their athletic acheivements.

              If that were the case, schools like Ohio State, Florida, LSU, etc would be cutting men's sports like track as well. They're not.
