Use money for good

Letter to the Editor | Sunday, December 7, 2008

I’m an avid alum and fan of football at Notre Dame (ask any of my former students, some of whom even write for The Observer now). I have posters of Notre Dame in my classroom and every Monday, somebody brings up the topic of the game, and I even suffer through watching Pete Carroll gloating as he trounces us! But how much money is it really worth to win a few more games each year? More than football, which I love, Notre Dame taught me to love helping other people. Use the buyout money for something more altruistic and dignified of the University. If they want to get rid of somebody, look for the guy who gave the contract extension to an untested head coach!
