I have never truly understood the place of college athletic programs. I am not a March Madness fan..and thanks to the Bulls, teamwork has come back to the NBA. I am not sure where the money that is due the fired coaches is coming from. I hope it is not my tax money, the state of Illinois does not have any. The records are about on par of the State of Illinois government. We don't see Madigan, Quinn or the rest of that lot being fired!
