“I don’t think so. It should be funded by the school and not the students. ”

“Yes. It’s part of my duty as a student that if I don’t go to games that I still support them.”

No. Athletes don't get any pay for all the advertising dollars they bring in. The sports dept. should be able to support themselves. Why should a student pay? It's hard enough to pay for tuition and books.

For your perusal, there are all the sports that are played at KU. They do not all bring in a lot of advertising dollars, but they are worthwhile just the same. In my opinion it is high time someone took notice of these student athletes.

MEN'S SPORTS
Baseball
Basketball
Cross Country
Football
Golf
Track & Field

WOMEN'S SPORTS
Basketball
Cross Country
Golf
Rowing
Soccer
Softball
Swimming & Diving
Tennis
Track And Field
Volleyball

I think that each sport should be funded according to their needs for uniformed, equipment, etc.

Students pay a fee that goes toward the buses whether they ride them or not. There are a whole slew of things that tuition covers.
